Regular hyaluronic acid is a bit tricky to integrate into a base. It does not readily dissolve in water but needs to be carefully sprinkled into some water first under constant high-speed stirring (preferably with a hand mixer or vortex mixer). Typical concentration is at 0.1 - 2% of HA. The mixture starts then thickening quickly and becomes a gel. At that point no additional HA can be added as there is no water left for HA to be dissolved in (additional HA would only form lumps). Only this gel can then be added to the serum.

Low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid does not form a gel and dissolves better in water. To add it to cream base we recommend to dissolve it in some water at a concentration of 5-10%. Add then the mixture into the cream base. Low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid has a better skin penetration but the moisturizing effect is not as intense than regular hyaluronic acid.
