Hyaluronic Acid is a type of Glycosaminoglycan, a group of molecules that form the basement layer of the skin. It is an important naturally occurring compound that helps retain and provide hydration and moisture in the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is an integral part of the basement layer of the skin and has important roles in skin healing and tissue regeneration. The compound absorbs water and helps act as a cushioning agent for the skin, but the production of this essential compound decreases with age. One molecule of hyaluronic acid alone can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, making it an excellent ingredient in topical creams as well as a fantastic volumizing and hydrating agent for facial fillers. These products can help counter the decrease in hyaluronic acid that occurs with age, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Its unique capacity to hold onto water effectively plumps out, hydrate and volumize the skin when applied to the face, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can also provide firmness and improve elasticity, making it a must-have ingredient in today’s skin care cosmetics. Many of our products such as our serums, creams and face masks include this essential ingredient due to the many benefits it can provide to your skin.
