Hyaluronic acid (also called hyaluronan) is naturally produced by our body. It is mostly found in our skin, eyes and connective tissues. What makes it really special and unique as a molecule is its impressive ability to retain water, locking in moisture, and therefore keeping tissue moist and efficiently lubricated. It is such a powerful substance that it can retain 1,000 times its weight in water!
Exactly as with collagen natural production in the body, hyaluronic acid decreases over the years, due to aging and nutritional factors, as well as various environmental aggressors, such as pollution and overexposure to the sun. As we know, proper skin hydration equals to more youthful and revitalized skin!
The good news: hyaluronic acid is used in skincare cosmetology to efficiently alleviate skin dryness, replenishing natural moisture. Furthermore, it boasts antibacterial properties and strong anti-oxidant action against free radicals. It also works well with other ingredients found in skincare cosmetics, such as retinols and vitamins, producing a synergistic effect and enhancing the action of active ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is ideal for any skin type – even the most sensitive skins- boosting radiance!
If you feel your skin is dehydrated with fine lines and wrinkles, hyaluronic acid is the perfect natural solution for you!
