You’ve probably already heard about hyaluronic acid as being some kind of elixir of youth or magical weapon against the signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid isn’t actually magical, but its active properties are no fairy tale.
Hyaluronic acid is the powerhouse ingredient in our successful skin products, delivering supple, healthy-looking skin with visibly fewer lines and wrinkles.
You’re probably wondering what is hyaluronic acid and how it actually works to keep your skin looking young?
#1. Naturally Present
Hyaluronic acid is an important component of your skin which your body produces naturally. It plays a major role in tissue repair and protection, and has astounding properties, such as being able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it super moisturizing.
But as you age your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, making your skin slower to heal and less effective at recovering from sun damage, blemishes, and other skin imperfections.
With lower levels of hyaluronic acid, your skin moisture levels drop, causing it to lose elasticity and reveal signs of aging.
#2. Extraordinary Hydration
Hyaluronic acid’s amazing hydration effects are what make it so powerful.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the best skin-hydrating elements that you can find.
#3. Skin Types
Hyaluronic acid is effective for every skin type – normal, oily, sensitive, acne-prone, dry or combination skin.
#4. Smart Hydration - All Year Round
Hyaluronic acid is smarter than your average hydration product.
It can control your skin’s moisture levels by adapting its moisture absorption rate according to the weather around you, sensing the humidity of your environment and keeping your skin correctly hydrated for every season.
#5. How Hyaluronic Acid Locks in Hydration ?
Hyaluronic acid works in an entirely different way to other moisturizers and skin-firmers.
Unlike collagen, for example, hyaluronic acid can be absorbed into the skin’s upper layers, penetrating deep into the dermis to aid tissue repair and protect the skin.
When applied as part of topical skin creams or serums, hyaluronic acid boosts your skin’s elasticity and locks in moisture by creating a protective, breathable barrier.
This barrier keeps moisture sitting near the surface of the skin, maintaining your skin’s hydration.
Hyaluronic acid plumps up your skin, bringing back the firmness and suppleness of your early twenties by keeping it better moisturized.
#6. What Is Triple Layer Hyaluronic Acid?
Our entire line of Hyaluronic Acid products contains 3 different types of hyaluronic acid, each delivering moisture and nourishment to the different layers of skin, where treatment is needed most - effectively regenerating skin at the cellular level, from the inside out.
Through this method of super-hydration, hyaluronic acid smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming, combatting visible signs of aging and keeping your skin soft and healthy.
#7. What Is It Otherwise Known As?
If you are looking up the ingredients list of your favorite products looking for hyaluronic acid, it may be listed as something else. It has a few other names: hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium acetyl hyaluronic and sodium hyaluronate (sodium hyaluronate is in fact even more absorbent).
