To anyone with dry or sensitive skin, hyaluronic acid might at first seem like a scary ingredient. The word acid alone can make us think instantly of red, scaly skin that burns! But unlike many of its harsh acidic cousins, hyaluronic acid is actually an incredibly gentle solution with hydrating and soothing benefits for all skin types.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs nearly everywhere in your body; it lubricates your joints, keeps your eyes healthy, and gives your skin that moisturized, youthful plumpness.
One of the biggest hurdles in treating aging skin is the loss of moisture that naturally occurs as we get older. Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule in our skin that aids in moisture retention. Because of its unique molecular characteristics, hyaluronic acid draws moisture into the skin from the surrounding environment, holding up to one thousand times its weight in water; this moisture is responsible for the plump, firm look of youthful skin. As we age, our levels of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid begin to decrease, lowering the amount of moisture in the skin, and creating chronic dryness and a loss of elasticity.
Because its a natural substance that your body is familiar with, hyaluronic acid injections are a favorite among dermatologists to plump wrinkles from the inside out. Fillers like Restalyne and Juvederm rely mostly on hyaluronic acid, which temporarily fills wrinkles and disperses into the body over time. However for those of us who prefer a needle-free anti-aging regimen, hyaluronic acid for skin also has incredible anti-aging benefits when applied topically.
Hyaluronic acid is an effective and lightweight moisturizer for all skin types, even oily skin! We’re proud to say that the hyaluronic acid used in our formulas is one of the only vegan options available in the ingredient marketplace; most are sourced from animal byproducts, but ours is from the fermentation of yams. It comes from a laboratory in the Czech Republic, and it’s one of our most expensive ingredients, but it’s worth its weight in gold.
Most hyaluronic acid has a large molecular size, causing it to sit on the surface of the skin. However, ours has a very low molecular weight, so it’s able to sink into the dermis to deliver hydration at the same level in which hyaluronic acid is naturally produced, allowing it to moisturize the skin in a powerful, lasting way.
Ready to hop onto the HA train? Here’s where you can find it (listed as sodium hyaluronate on the ingredient list): Our Hydrating Floral Essence is like an hyaluronic-acid treatment on-the-go. Our antiaging products, including the Rejuvenating Serum, Restorative Eye Creme, Boosted Contouring Serum, Concentrated Brightening Serum and Elixir Vitae all contain it – so do our daily moisturizers, the Rebuilding Moisturizer and Repairative Moisturizer.
