WHERE IN THE BODY IS HYALURONIC FOUND?
It is found in both the skin’s deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid. It keeps the skin stay young and healthy.
WHY IS HYALURONIC IMPORTANT?
Hyaluronic acid retains water, keeping the collagen moist and elastic. With age, the ability of the skin to produce hyaluronic acid decreases.
The hyaluronic acid provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water.
HYALURONIC ACID IN SKIN YOUNG VS. OLD
Hyaluronic serum has the amazing ability to deliver vast amounts of moisture to the skin as it’s able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. This makes hyaluronic acid an anti-ageing superstar!
Why? Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it attracts and locks moisture in the skin. What’s more, hyaluronic acid is a “smart nutrient” of sorts as it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity, relative to the season and the climate.
If you’re living in a drier climate, then it is advisable to seal in your hyaluronic acid serum with a moisteriser (preferably organic) or oil-serum to avoid a drying effect as it will pull moisture from the skin if there isn’t sufficient moisture in the air. When living in a humid environment, this is normally not an issue.
Hyaluronic acid helps to improve your skins moisture content and thus strengthens your skins barrier. A healthier barrier means plumper, smoother, younger looking skin!
Seal in with your favourite organic oil, serum or moisteriser. Make sure your products contain no syntetic ingredients such as parabens, mineral oils, fillers, colourants or GMO’s.
Yes, Size Does Matter!
This is where Sodium Hyaluronate comes in – a sodium salt of hyaluronic acid – with an array of improved smaller molecular weights enabling full and deep penetration into the sub dermal layers. The smaller molecular weights deeply penetrate to fully hydrate the dermis, visually plumping out fine line and wrinkles as it does so. It also acts as a wonderful anti-oxidant and aids skin healing, so ideal for any skin suffering from inflammation, sunburn, grazes or any sensitivity. This low molecular form of hyaluronic acid is made by enzymatically cleaving high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid into small fragments.
SkinSense Hyaluronic Youth Serum penetrates your skin more than 3 times deeper (17% vs. 5%) than before. Better absorption means you get your money’s worth!
Companies Claiming Higher Concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid?
Claims of 10%, 75% and even a ludicrous 100% hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate are simply misleading. In any case, high concentrations would act as a sponge and simply draw out moisture from the skin, thus causing dryness. Any honest and responsible formulator will tell you that it’s not possible to formulate a HA serum at more than 2% sodium hyaluronate.
Did You Know?
It works overtime by replenishing skin to enhance a healthy look and feel. Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture content beyond comparison with anything else, and at the same time revitalize skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and, especially, radiantly hydrated! That’s how it instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
