History of hyaluronic acid
In 1934, the German biochemist Karl Meyer and his colleague John Palmer isolated a previously unknown chemical substance from cows’ eyes.1 Because the substance contained uronic acid, one of the two sugar molecules found in large quantities in the vitreous humour, they named it “hyaluronic acid”.2
