Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers owe their popularity to good results, low intrusiveness and safe application. However, there are rare cases where a patient’s body reacts to them against expectations.
Why does this happen?
Currently, the most popular source of HA are laboratory strains of Streptococcus.
In fact, extracting the precious acid out of them requires the bacteria membrane breaking and application of chemical solvents. Contaminants present in the finished product are precisely the residues of bacteria and solvents. Despite several purifying processes, today’s technology is unable to fully eliminate these impurities.
HYALURONIC ACID HAS NEVER BEEN SO PURE!
The purest form of hyaluronic acid currently available is obtained from Bacillus subtilis. This bacterium, which is non-pathogenic to humans, produces HA in a process based on water usage.
Unquestionable advantages of Bacillus Subtilis Hyaluronic Acid:
High safety of application
Pre-determined molecular mass
Possibility to apply high HA concentration
Long shelf life
