Description: Hexapeptide-9 promotes the synthesis of dermal collagen, the regeneration of dermal-epidermal junction and the skin differentiation. Hyaluronic acid (HA), also named hyaluronan, is a high molecular weight (105–107 Da) naturally occurring biodegradable polymer. HA is an unbranched non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG) composed of repeating disaccharides (β-1,4-D-glucuronic acid (known as uronic acid) and β-1,3-N-acetyl-D-glucosamide). Hyaluronic acid is one of the major elements in the extracellular matrix (ECM) of vertebrate tissues. It is available in almost all body fluids and tissues, such as the synovial fluid, the vitreous humor of the eye, and hyaline cartilage. This biopolymer functions as a scaffold, binding other matrix molecules including aggrecan. It is also involved in several important biological functions, such as regulation of cell adhesion and cell motility, manipulation of cell differentiation and proliferation, and providing mechanical properties to tissues.
