Health experts are warning that consumers may be putting too much of the ingredient in their skin care products that have been blamed for skin irritation, including hyalurendane and hyaladrin.
But there is no hard evidence that the ingredients pose a risk to skin health.
The Food and Drug Administration, for example, has said it does not consider hyaluratonic acid to be a potentially hazardous ingredient.
The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Academy at Large, the industry’s largest organization of experts, also have said they do not consider it a risk.
The agency said in a statement Monday that it is reviewing the findings of the research to determine whether to update its guidance on the ingredients in consumer products.
The agency said that the review is ongoing and will include the review of the evidence.
But the ingredient is one that has become popular among some health-conscious consumers, who want to keep skin clear and moisturized, as well as to boost the skin’s defenses against free radicals.
The FDA is working with industry groups to develop an updated product label, but so far has not been able to find an updated labeling standard to guide consumers.
Hyaluronylacetic acid, also known as hyalacetonitrile, is used as a preservative and stabilizer in cosmetics and personal care products.
It is used to soften the skin by reducing wrinkles and to promote hydration.
The new research was led by Michael W. Lassner, a professor of cosmetic science and an associate dean for academic research at Harvard Medical School.
In the study, published online by the Journal of the American Cosmetic Society, researchers compared the effects of the ingredients hyalurtic acid and hyalan, a compound that contains the same hyaluranonyl group as hyalisynthylene, in 16 skin-softening products made with hyalurenic acid.
In all the products, the hyaluroonic acid led to the skin cells that form scar tissue, while hyalan led to a reduction in the skin surface area.
The two ingredients also did not lead to a significant reduction in facial or body hair, as either product had been expected to.
The ingredients’ effects on the skin, however, were different.
In some cases, hyalURAc, the ingredient that caused the most damage, led to an increase in the production of scar tissue.
In others, the two ingredients produced less scar tissue and fewer breakouts.
The researchers found that the results were similar in people who have had skin irritation caused by allergies, acne, and/or eczema.
The researchers also found that people who used more hyalarin, a product that contains hyalutin, a chemical found in hyalamides and hyalisenes, experienced significantly less skin damage, compared with people who did not use hyalARAs.
The study also found no difference in skin thickness or thickness of the skin around the eyes, nose, mouth, and mouthparts.
The results were also similar for people who had the most severe skin irritation.
In an accompanying editorial, Lassners and his colleagues said the research could provide important clues for how hyalarendane might work in skin care.
In the case of skin irritation from allergies, it is possible that the ingredient may increase the skin sensitivity of the person who uses it, which could lead to greater irritation or skin damage.
But they said it is also possible that, like other ingredients in skin-care products, hyALARAs may cause skin damage that could worsen over time.
In general, the researchers suggested consumers consider using sunscreen as needed, as hyALURAc and hyALAMIN have the potential to cause irritation or scarring, which is why sunscreen should be used as needed.
