Hyaluronic Acid - The ultimate moisturizer
Hyaluronic Acid - (C14H21NO11)n
○ One gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to one liter of water!
○ Reduces the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines
○ Helps keep skin collagen and elastin stable
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin known for its amazing ability to attract and hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water.
Hyaluronic acid is actually not an acid, but a sugar, glycosaminoglycan, which binds water and forms it into a gel. This gel acts as a lubricant between the elastic fibers in our skin. It protects the connective tissue from particles and bad bacteria. Hyaloronic acid is also found in the articular fluid, in the fluid in the eye, and egg cells are also surrounded by hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid's most important job is to keep the skin, collagen and elastin stable, balanced and continuously renewed.
Why use Hyaluronic Acid in skin care?
This ingredient is the ultimate ingredient for dry and dehydrated skin.
Hyaluronic acid improves the moisture levels in the skin and to makes the skin softer, smoother and plumped. Lines and wrinkles can also be minimized because wrinkles often appear the most when the skin is dry and dehydrated. The visibility of the wrinkles will disappear when the skin is plumped full of moisture.
What is special about our Hyaluronic acid?
We use two different high quality hyaluronic acids and both are organic EcoCert and COSMOS certified, vegan and derived from glucose, soy peptone and yeast extract. Hyaluronic acid is produced biotechnologically through microbial fermentation with the aid of yeast extract and peptones and serums.
1. SLMW Hyaluronic Acid (super low-molecular-weight) form is made by enzymatically cleaving high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid into small fragments. Molecular weight 8-15kDa.
2. Large sugar molecule hyaluronic acid and holds 500 times its own weight of water. Molecular weight 800-1200kDa.
When using both low molecule and large molecule hyaluronic acid we manage to hydrate the skin on every level, and it becomes even more effective for dry and dehydrated skin. Hyaluronic acid improves the moisture in the skin to make it softer and smoother. Lines and wrinkles can also be greatly reduced because HA plumps the skin full of moisture and the visibility of the wrinkles will disappear.
We make an unique blend of hyaluronic acids so that the skin easily can 'drink' and use this amazing ingredient that is the ultimate moisturizer.
