Hyaluronic acid works as an extremely powerful humectant, able to attract 1000x its own weight in water, to immediately plump and hydrate the area it is applied to. The body’s own production of hyaluronic acid slows with age, so supplementing this ingredient in topical formulations helps to support the skin’s natural moisture-binding, anti-ageing mechanisms. Hyaluronic acid is a family of ingredients, also known by hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate, sodium acetylated hyaluronate, sodium butyroyl hyaluronate, sodium hyaluronate or sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer.
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, a type of molecule with excellent water-holding capacity. It is used in skincare for its exceptional hydrating, moisturizing, and skin-plumping properties.
Hyaluronic acid offers benefits such as: - Provides deep hydration by attracting and retaining water on the skin's surface, resulting in a more plump and moisturized complexion. - Assists in improving the skin's moisture retention ability, helping to prevent dryness and maintain a healthy skin barrier. - Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily filling in and smoothing the skin's surface. - Supports overall skin health, contributing to a more supple and radiant complexion.
