What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a macromolecule. It is critical in the synthesis of our cells extra cellular matrix internally. It has been reoriented to be nontoxic, nonimmunogenic, and noncarcinogenic. Hyaluronic acid is widely used for multiple medical purposes and one of its most valued properties is its ability to hold a large amount of moisture. Skin that appears youthful continues to stay and feel hydrated because of the large of hyaluronic acid. We create hyaluronic avid daily but, as we age, this dramatically declines. Hyaluronic Acid has also been documented to be an excellent free radical scavenger and to have anti-inflammatory properties which could potentially help to diminish inflammation in the skin.
Topically, Hyaluronic acid can be used in the form of creams, serums, and lotions because it acts as a powerful humectant retaining water and bringing moisture to the surface of the skin without being greasy.
