    Hi Natalia,

    I will discuss it with Timothy and let you know what his thoughts are.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hi Natalia,

    Just discussed this with Timothy. We have no plans to sell hyaluronic acid in solution. Mostly because once hyaluronic acid is put in solution, it is highly susceptible to microbial contamination.

    You can easily make the liquid form yourself from our power...the recipe is available here. http://purebulk.com/hyaluronic-acid-na-hyaluronate

    I've copied it here for you, additionally.
    Hyaluronic Solution Preparation: To prepare 12 fluid ounces of 1% (by weight) Hyaluronic Acid solution you should be aware that Hyaluronic Acid should only be dissolved in cold water. Never attempt to dissolve Hyaluronic Acid in hot or room temperature water. You will need the following items.

    1. 3.56 grams Hyaluronic Acid Powder.
    2. 12 fluid ounces distilled water.
    3. 16 fluid ounce or larger capacity wide mouth glass or plastic water bottle with a tightly sealing lid.
    4. Gram weight measuring scale with and accuracy of 0.01 gram and a capacity of 100 grams such as you see on our website listed under the Scales Digital Gram Weight product category.
    5. Pint sized glass or plastic measuring cup.
    6. Thermometer

    Directions: Measure out 12 fluid ounces distilled water and pour into water bottle. Place in refrigerator for about 4 hours. Measure the temperature of water to confirm water temperature is 39°F (4°C) or less. Measure out 3.56 grams Hyaluronic Acid powder (approximately two level teaspoons). Add the Hyaluronic Acid powder into the water bottle on top of the cold water. Seal the bottle lid tightly and shake the bottle a few times. The Hyaluronic Acid powder will not appear to dissolve but will clump together in floating white masses. This is normal. Place the water bottle with the Hyaluronic Acid powder and cold water into the refrigerator (but do not freeze). Periodically, about every two to four hours, shake the bottle and then place immediately back into refrigerator. After 4 to 8 hours you will notice that the Hyaluronic Acid clumps are turning clear and dispersing into solution. After 12 to 24 hours the Hyaluronic Acid will be completely dissolved forming a thickened and gelatinous liquid with a viscosity between maple syrup and honey, but still pourable. For internal use a level tablespoon will net approximately 150 milligrams Hyaluronic Acid.

    Hyaluronic Acid solution storage: You can store your 1% Hyaluronic Solution in the refrigerator and use it as needed. This HA solution if prepared and stored properly should keep for a minimum of 48 to 72 hours with refrigeration. You should not attempt to store your HA solution at room temperature without the addition of preservatives. The maximum safe time you can keep your HA solution refrigerated without spoilage will depend upon your ability to keep the solution sterile. Microbial contamination of your solution will cause it to spoil and lose its thickness (viscosity). If over time the solution becomes thin or loses its thickness and viscosity it has spoiled and should be discarded.

    Adding preservatives to your Hyaluronic Acid solution: To store this HA solution refrigerated for periods of time longer than 3 days you should start this recipe by first adding preservatives to the distilled water. Two such preservatives we inventory are Ascorbic Acid and DMAE Bitartrate. Add and dissolve approximately 6 grams Ascorbic Acid and 3 grams DMAE Bitartrate to 12 fluid ounces distilled water at room temperature. After both powders are completely disolved chill the 12 fluid ounces to 39°F (4°C) and then follow the recipe directions above. When taken orally this preserved HA solution will net the following nutritional supplements per level tablespoon: Hyaluronic Acid 150mg, Ascorbic Acid 250mg, DMAE Bitartrate 125mg.

    Internal Use: Hyaluronic Acid can be taken internally as a nutritional supplement with benefits including joint and connective tissue health. Hyaluronic Acid powder can be placed directly into the mouth and swallowed with water, or you can mix your dose in food or juice and consume. But for optimal results and bioavailability take a measured amount of a prepared 1% Hyaluronic Acid solution. See above for methods of preparing a 1% Hyaluronic Acid Solution which will approximate 150 milligrams Hyaluronic Acid per 1 level tablespoon of 1% solution.

    Topical Use: Hyaluronic Acid can also be applied topically to the skin with tremendous anti-aging results, reducing wrinkles and increasing the elasticity of facial skin. Topical use is usually recommended in concentrations between 1/2% but not to exceed 1%. Since Hyaluronic Acid is known to absorb between 500 and 1,000 times its weight in water higher concentrations than 1% will jellify and not flow easily. Understand also that many Hyaluronic Acid Solution sellers will make claims such that their product is a 50% or even a 100% Hyaluronic Acid Solution without disclosing to you that standard industry terminology equates a 100% Hyaluronic Acid Solution as a solution of 99% water and 1% Hyaluronic Acid by weight since this is the concentration that is considered maximal for an Hyaluronic Acid solution to maintain it's fluid characteristics.
