More About Hyaluronic Acid

“Hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the skin and diminishes with age, can help the skin hold water.” Skincare Physicians

“Hyaluronic acid gel is a protective lubricating gel, produced naturally by the body, that binds with water to plump the skin.” FDA

“Skin care products containing this substance are often used in conjunction with vitamin C products to assist in effective penetration. Hyaluronic acid (also known as a glycosaminoglycan) is often touted for its ability to “reverse” or stop aging. In news reports, you might have heard of hyaluronic acid as the “key to the fountain of youth.” This is because the substance occurs naturally (and quite abundantly) in humans and animals, and is found in young skin, other tissues, and joint fluid. Hyaluronic acid is a component of the body’s connective tissues, and is known to cushion and lubricate.” Cleveland Clinic

“Hyaluronic acid is highly effective humectant, i.e. an ingredient that holds moisture. HA can hold hundreds of times its weight in water and is often used in moisturizing formulas. Indeed it can provide effective skin surface hydration, either alone or in combination with other moisturizing ingredients. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural biopolymer that can be very effective for skin hydration and moisturizing if used properly. Preliminary evidence suggests that large size HA may also help combat skin irritation and inflammation.”
