Hyaluronic acid can be found in a huge number of products… But what exactly is it and what does it do?
Hyaluronic Acid is a carbohydrate found naturally in the skin but, the volume of hyaluronic acid present in the skin diminishes with age, meaning it needs to be incorporated into your skincare routine to help maintain a youthful complexion.
Hyaluronic acid can help increase skin moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is capable of holding 1000 times its own weight in water and is responsible for keeping the skin stable, hydrated and plump-looking. It naturally plumps and smoothes the skin, significantly decreasing the depth of wrinkles and helps to enhance skin firmness and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acids across multiple molecular weights deliver distinct skin benefits:
- High molecular weight HA locks in moisture.
- Mid molecular weight HA provides hydration to mid-dermal layers.
- Low molecular weight HA penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate the body’s own HA production.
