One of our TOP 3 in-demand products, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is renowned for its ability to retain moisture and has the ability to instantly plump skin and smooth wrinkles, as well as helping skin to repair itself more quickly.
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan found naturally in the human body especially in the skin. As we age we produce less of it, so supplementation of HA is one factor that can contribute to slowing the aging process.
When our skin needs a moisture boost it makes an excellent quick fix, as well as being a great everyday product for achieving smooth, plumped, hydrated skin. On top of that, its barrier-repairing function means that it can help our skin to protect itself against sun damage, superficial wounds, and inflammation.
Suitable for all skin types.
Youthful skin retains its turgor, resilience and pliability, among others, due to its high content of water. Daily external injury, in addition to the normal process of aging, causes loss of moisture. The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid (HA) that has unique capacity in retaining water.
Hyaluronic acid belongs to the extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules. During the past decades the constituents of the skin have been well characterized. In the beginning, most of the studies focused on the cells that comprise the skin layers, such as the epidermis, the dermis and the underlying subcutis. Recently, it is appreciated that ECM molecules that lie between cells, in addition to providing a constructive framework, they exert major effects on cellular function. These ECM molecules, although they appear amorphous by light microscopy, they form a highly organized structure, comprising mainly of glycosaminoglycan, proteoglycans, growth factors and structural proteins such as collagens. Yet, the predominant component of the skin ECM is Hyaluronic acid.
