Hyaluronic Acid- What is it; is it safe and why is it important for our skin?
Hyaluronic acid or Sodium Hyaluronate, is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) that is found in the human body. As a glycosaminoglycan, its an important component of connective tissue, along with having benefits of tissue repair and skin protection. It is naturally derived from multiple resources, foods, supplements and HA powders.
As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid). It provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness back to our skin. It also protects our skin from damaging free radicals and dangerous UVB rays which cause sunspots.
Plastic surgeons use Hyaluronic Acid as an injectable filler, to plump lips and fill in deep wrinkles, but this is an invasive and costly and only a temporary solution. As a topical, Hyaluronic Acid is able to penetrate the skin’s upper layers to improve and benefit the skin, UNLIKE COLLAGEN. The hyaluronic acid in our Clarifying and Hydrating toner, forms an air permeable layer and penetrates into the dermis, thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective barrier on the skin locks in moisture, which gives the skin a youthful and dewy appearance.
