Why is Hyaluronic acid so poplular

Hyaluronic Acid has been touted as one of the most effective ingredients used in skin care. It’s anti-aging and hydrating qualities continue to rank this ingredient high because of it’s natural ability to offer long lasting moisture. As trends change, Hyaluronic Acid continually wins the popularity contest. Let’s find out what makes it so popular. 


1) What is Hyaluronic Acid? It is a molecule naturally found in the skin which has the incredible ability to retain moisture. It’s actually considered a Natural Humectant, which means it draws moisture from the air to the skin. HA has the ability to hold 1000x it's weight in water making it extremely effective for intense hydration for more plump, firm skin. 

 


2) Why is hyaluronic acid so effective? Dry/ dehydrated skin is the main cause of wrinkles and aging. So it makes sense that hyaluronic acid is a rock star for all skin types because of the ability continually hydrate and create a protective barrier for the skin. 

 


3) What’s the relationship between Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronte?  Sodium Hyaluronte is the salt form of Hyaluronic Acid that also has the ability to hold 1000x it’s weight in water. The main difference between the two is that it boasts a smaller molecular weight making it easier to penetrate the skin cell and do its job. 


Topical products containing HA and Sodium Hyaluonte are extremely effective in the skin care war against aging by continually restoring and retaining the skin’s plumpness and hydration. Also used in injectable, the dermis can retain hydration and firmness for several months.
