How it works
Hyaluronic Acid is a gooey, lubricous substance produced naturally in the body; commonly being found in the eyes, joints and skin. It can also be produced artificially by fermenting certain types of bacteria. Hyaluronic Acid is a key component in complicated chain-like molecules called polymers. These polymers have plenty of spots where other chemical compounds, such as water, can latch onto, making it a valuable ingredient in moisturizing cosmetics as it upholds its reputation of being the best polymer for absorbing water.
Its extraordinary benefits
- Hydration: because of its incredible ability to retain water, hyaluronic acid is often used in moisturizing creams, serums, ointments and lotions.
- Wound healing: although it is already present in the skin naturally, its concentration increases when there is damage in need of repair by regulating inflammation levels, signaling the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged areas. Its chain-like structure allows it to act as a scaffold structure to aid tissues in growing while simultaneously reducing the risk of infection with its antibacterial properties.
- Anti-aging: Changes in the body’s natural amount of hyaluronic acid, due to environmental factors such as UV exposure, leads to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. The acid exerts a decisive regenerating action on skin structures to counteract skin slackening by enhancing skin firmness and elasticity to decrease the depth of wrinkles. By increasing the body’s amount of hyaluronic acid, the skin is able to repair and protect itself, promoting healthier, more flexible and supple skin.
