Why Use Hyaluronic Acid?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant ingredient that attracts water and binds it. If the humidity in the air is high, it can draw that water, absorb it into the skin, and hydrate it. Hyaluronic acid is found in the body naturally in your joints, skin, and eyes. As we age, the level of hyaluronic acid in the body declines along with collagen and elastin. The loss of these powerful substances contributes to aging, and this shows up in the skin when it becomes less firm and appears drier and wrinkled. 

How Hyaluronic Acid helps your skin?

Using skincare that contains hyaluronic acid will help to strengthen the skin barrier, which speeds up the skin’s healing process, protects it from developing skin conditions, and against infections from cuts or scrapes. Hydrated skin looks and feels plumper and appears more youthful, lessening fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid helps your skin retain moisture and replenish the skin. 

Who can use hyaluronic acid ingredients?

Sensitive skin-hyaluronic acid is generally suitable for easily irritated skin, and certain types of hyaluronic acid will help calm the skin down. 

 Hyaluronic Acid is safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding but check with your doctor before using anything new. 

Mature Skin-Hyaluronic Acid contains anti-aging properties that help to make skin look and feel younger. 

Oily Skin – an excellent choice for most oily skins because it’s very lightweight and sinks into the skin quickly. 

Types of Hyaluronic Acid

There are three types of Hyaluronic acid molecules used in skincare. The lower the molecular weight, the more it can penetrate the skin. 

Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid is lightweight and broken down into small molecules, penetrating the skin quickly. This type of hyaluronic acid is excellent for sensitive skin. 

Sodium Hyaluronate known as the salt form has a small stable molecule size that is less likely to oxidize and penetrates the skin fast. 

Sodium acetylated hyaluronate, or super hyaluronic acid, stays on the skin’s surface longer by attaching itself to the surface layers for improved hydration and elasticity.
