About Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a type of mucopolysaccharide composed of glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine and acts to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid is distributed in the body in the human skin, synovial fluid and in the vitreous body of the eyes.

Producing Hyaluronic acid


Kewpie studies and produces Hyaluronic acid using two methods: microbial fermentation and extraction from Chicken comb.

Starting with research and development of Hyaluronic acid in 1983, Kewpie has since completed many R&D projects. Kewpie therefore has the technology to control the molecular weight of Hyaluronic acid and produce Hyaluronic acid as appropriate to customer's needs.
