Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that plays a critical role in maintaining moisture, lubrication and tissue health. In skincare, hyaluronic acid is commonly used for its exceptional ability to attract and hold water. It can help hydrate skin, improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by providing intense, long-lasting moisture. Hyaluronic acid is often used in targeted hydration products like eye creams, serums and lotions and as dermal fillers to create volume and plump skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, primarily in connective tissues, synovial fluid and skin. In skincare products, it's either created in laboratories or derived from microbial fermentation specifically for cosmetic and medical use.
Hyaluronic acid is generally well-tolerated on skin and as a naturally occurring substance in the body, it rarely causes adverse reactions when used.
Boosts Skin Hydration
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture from the environment. It has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and provide intense hydration to plump skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.
Stimulate Collagen Production
Hyaluronic acid supports the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness. Hyaluronic acid promotes collagen synthesis to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of sagging or loose skin.
Soothes and Calms Skin
Hyaluronic acid has soothing properties that can help calm irritated or sensitive skin. It can reduce redness and inflammation for those with sensitive or compromised skin.
Strengthens Skin Barrier
Hyaluronic acid helps strengthen and reinforce skin's natural barrier function which protects skin against environmental damage.
Contains Anti-Aging Benefits
Because of its hydrating and plumping properties, hyaluronic acid can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
