Super potent humectant produced by bacterial fermentation.
Hydrates and nourishes skin cells and locks in moisture
Contains different molecular size range between bigger and smaller molecules, it can be partially absorbed by the top layer of skin which means it can hydrate cells a little bit deeper than other humectants
It has an immediate plumping effect which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines
Hyaluronic Acid is part of the skin’s NMFs (Natural Moisturising Factors) which means it is something that your skin can produce on its own. However, as we age, the production of NMF’s decrease and supplementation of these NMF’s are necessary for optimal skin health
It attracts water from its environment. This environment is either the atmosphere or your skin itself. Hence you have to apply it on damp skin. If applied on dry skin, it will pull water from the deeper skin layers which is actually the opposite effect of its intended use
The use of Hyaluronic Acid should be carefully considered in areas with relatively low humidity. It might cause the Hyaluronic Acid to pull water from the skin to its surface where it will evaporate, also the opposite effect of its intended use. In this case it is recommended to follow a serum containing Hyaluronic Acid with a product that is high in occlusives i.e. Renew your Dew. This will help to prevent TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss) and keep the must needed moisture on your skin
