One of the many incredible chemicals produced by our bodies is a complex sugar called hyaluronic acid. This sugar is an effective lubricant that is found in both people and animals. What makes this molecule so versatile is its elasticity, which allows it to absorb shock and return to its original shape. It is hyaluronic acid which lubricates our joints, makes our skin elastic, and protects delicate tissues within our eyes. Because of its many unique and desirable properties, hyaluronic acid is added to cosmetics, skin moisturizers, and shaving creams. In addition, it has been found useful in areas varying from the treatment of arthritis to eye surgery.

The primary problem with putting this marvelous chemical into even more widespread use is that it is tremendously expensive to obtain. Chemists are diligently trying to find less expensive methods for producing this complex natural lubricant, but have yet to succeed. Does it make logical sense to believe that random-chance processes created chemicals that scientists must spend years of study and planning to duplicate?
