China (Jinan) Hyaluronic Acid Industry Conference was held in Jinan on June 3rd. This Conference comprehensively discussed the efficacy and role of hyaluronic acid in promoting human health from the research and development of hyaluronic acid raw materials, food, cosmetics, medical care and anti-aging. It is rich in content and can be called “an evolutionary history of hyaluronic acid”.

Although hyaluronic acid has long been integrated into all aspects of our lives, most consumers only think that hyaluronic acid is a beauty product, and their understanding of hyaluronic acid is not comprehensive. At the Conference, the “6.3 Hyaluronic Acid Health Day” initiative was released to popularize hyaluronic acid for the whole society and help human health, beauty and happiness.

Hyaluronic acid is widely distributed in synovial fluid, vitreous body, skin, umbilical cord and other parts of human and animals. Insufficient hyaluronic acid in the body leads to dry eyes, rough skin, arthritis, etc.

In the early days, hyaluronic acid was produced by comb extraction, and only one kilogram of hyaluronic acid could be extracted from every 200 kilograms of comb. In 1992, Guo Xueping, the chief scientist of Bloomage Biotech, took the lead in applying microbial fermentation to the production of hyaluronic acid, which greatly improved the production efficiency, reduced the cost and greatly expanded the application field of hyaluronic acid.

In the field of ophthalmology, hyaluronic acid not only provides viscoelastic agent for cataract patients and corneal transplant patients in surgery, but also acts as the main component of “artificial tears” sodium hyaluronate eye drops, which can be used to treat dry eye and relieve visual fatigue.

In the field of orthopedics, hyaluronic acid is the main component of synovial fluid. Intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid can lubricate joints, relieve joint wear and effectively treat joint pain. In addition to injection, studies have shown that oral hyaluronic acid can also supplement hyaluronic acid in joint synovial fluid, maintain joints, prevent arthritis, effectively relieve joint pain and improve motor function.

In the field of food, the history of oral hyaluronic acid can be traced back to 1996. Japan approved the addition of hyaluronic acid to food. In addition to preventing joint injury, oral hyaluronic acid can also help skin retain moisture, maintain elasticity, regulate intestinal immune health, and make eyes brighter and more moist.

In the field of skin care, hyaluronic acid has been internationally recognized as the most ideal natural moisturizing factor, which can be applied to various cosmetics and medical beauty products to play a role in moisturizing and beautifying. According to the data, hyaluronic acid accounts for 43% of the injected medical beauty in China. According to different molecular weights, hyaluronic acid has different skin care effects. Macromolecule hyaluronic acid can form a protective film on the skin surface, lock the skin isolation barrier and isolate UV and smog. Small and medium molecular hyaluronic acid has the function of cell migration and can effectively repair damaged and aged skin cells; The effect of oligohyaluronic acid can directly reach the basal layer.

The development history of hyaluronic acid is also an evolutionary history of biotechnology. Hyaluronic acid exists not only to make people younger and more beautiful, but also to make people healthier and have a better quality of life.
