It began with an idea
Like with most pioneers, the founding of Hyalogic began when two friends, Darren and Mark, who had been working as respiratory therapists in the home health industry, had an idea to try something new. They simply wanted to create a way to more easily help their patients to better mobility. They decided to focus specifically on finding an alternative to glucosamine for joint health.
As luck would have it, their mutual friend Tom told them about a special molecule—hyaluronic acid—a remarkable naturally occurring lubricant found in nearly every part of the human body. When Tom explained how hyaluronic acid (HA) works to keep the body’s joints healthy, cushioned and mobile, but that the body produces less of it as we age, a light went off for both Darren and Mark. Could supplementing the body with this water-loving molecule deliver the improved mobility results they were looking for?
Remarkably, many rounds of research and testing resulted in daily amazement and the creation of a liquid HA product that delivered real joint health benefits. This was not a gimmick; it was science! In 2000, Darren and Mark sold their respiratory health business and joined Tom on the journey to co-founding Hyalogic™. Hyalogic became the producer of the first oral liquid HA for supplementation.
Hyaluronic Acid- The Beauty Surprise
What occurred next truly astonished the Hyalogic co-founders. Shortly after releasing their first liquid oral HA joint product, consumers began reporting a myriad of “fountain of youth” benefits beyond joint health. A recurring theme developed in these customer stories. HA was not only helping joint mobility, it was also supporting healthy hair and skin textures of the users—and users were excited about it! Customers began asking if HA could be added to shampoo, lip balm, creams, lotions and other products. Completely amazed, Darren, Mark and Tom launched an extensive research endeavor that led to the creation of both health and beauty products formulated using HA. Soon, they developed a full line of joint health and beauty products all using the HA. Today, Hyalogic has more than 50 HA-based products for humans and animals.
Applying their high standards for quality and efficacy, the founders set out to ensure that all Hyalogic™ products would be beneficial, safe and stable. They developed a five-stage process called Hyalock® that rigorously examined ingredients for compatibility and stability. Hyalogic’s HA is non-animal derived, vegan friendly. With total focus on HA, Hyalogic is now known in the natural health and beauty world as having among the highest quality HA available.
Educating the Masses
Hyalogic™ recognized the medical field’s long-term successful professional use of HA . However, in making HA available directly to consumers with supplements and beauty products, they knew that education was critical. Carrying the responsibility of this new movement, Hyalogic™ had its work cut out. They launched an extensive education endeavor to bring this knowledge to the public. The opportunities to train and educate presented themselves in health food stores, spas, clinics and at trade shows.
From the origins of the first premium oral Hyaluronic Acid product, Synthovial Seven®, to the more common recognition of HA today in beauty products, Hyalogic™ has continued pioneering the development of HA products to enhance peoples’ lives.
