Hyaluronic acid is a moisturiser that occurs naturally in the skin. It makes an ideal moisturiser base, reducing the need for other lubricants and emollients. New technology using hyaluronic acid fragments activates the skin’s own production of hyaluronic acid, Hyaluronic acid is a must for severely dry skins. Hyaluronic Acid, is the most credible, proven anti-aging ingredient on the market.
Almost half of all hyaluronic acid from the human body is contained in the skin, in the connective tissue of derma between collagen and elastin fibers as well as in the cells of the corneal layer – corneocytes. Hyaluronic acid synthesis in derma and epidermis starts slowing down as early as 15 years of age and accelerates under the influence of different factors.
Compared to other moisturizers, hyaluronic acid has a number of advantages. Hyaluronic acid has the highest hygroscopic property (the ability to absorb moisture) compared to other common moisturising agents such as glycerine and sorbitol. At the same time unlike glycerine it stays active in a dry atmosphere.
It is compatible with skin and does not cause allergic reactions or irritations. Cosmetics which contain hyaluronic acid soften, moisturize and protect the skin, noticeably changing its appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid is a superior anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle ingredient which will improve the appearance of the complexion.
