 Hyaluronic Acid – The benefits

Hyaluronic Acid, often called “the fountain of youth” is also known as  Sodium Hyaluronate.  Because it binds water to the skin, it also boosts hydration levels.  Some people might be put off by the word “acid”, but this acid is actually a salt.  The body makes it naturally, however, as we get older, natural production slows down.  Smoking and UV damage can also reduce the Hyaluronic acid levels in the body.  Doctors have used this substance since 1970s, when they began to use it during eye surgery.

 

More about the version I use to make the products

 

I use a version of the product that comes in powder form.  It is approved by the Soil Association and is very eco-friendly.  It is Vegan and 100% animal-free.  I want to point out that this ingredient, found in many high-end skin care products is often made from rooster combs.  I buy a product that is made by a bio-fermentation process; therefore, it is plant-based.  This is why I use this supplier as they refuse to stock any products that contain animal products.  Nor do they ever sell products that have been tested on animals.

 

Hyaluronic Acid has many benefits for the skin.

  • Hyaluronic Acid increases moisture in the skin as it is a strong humectant, (increases moisture), and it holds up to 600 times its weight in water.

  • It gives the skin fullness, adding volume to the skin.

  • Hyaluronic acid reduces moisture loss from the skin.

  • I chose to include it in anti-aging products because it restores elasticity and it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

  • I have included hyaluronic acid in my intensive eye products.

  • Hyaluronic acid is also helpful for acne-prone skin as it speeds the healing process and reduces inflammation.

  • The product softens and smooths the skin and promotes tissue regeneration.

  • It stimulates cell renewal.

  • Products containing hyaluronic acid hydrate the skin and, as a result, increase skin smoothness and softness.

  • It has anti-wrinkle properties.

  • Research is beginning to show that increasing hyaluronic acid levels in the skin can lead to an increase in collagen production.

  • It is very rare for people to be sensitive or allergic to hyaluronic acid because it is already produced by the body.
