Skincare with Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid has many benefits, namely hydration, reducing fine lines, and promoting skin firmness. 

It’s a must-have in your skincare routine as it’s one of the best polymers for holding water and increasing skin hydration. Long-term use of hyaluronic acid can improve your overall skin health, elasticity, and more.


What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a substance that the body naturally produces, and can primarily be found in your skin, joints, and eyes.
Much like collagen, hyaluronic acid is partly responsible for a bright, hydrated appearance. This is because it can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water!

What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do?

The main purpose of hyaluronic acid is to hydrate. Although it’s naturally occurring in several parts of the body, it can be created artificially for skincare application, oral consumption, or other methods.
Our products use sodium hyaluronate, the salt form of hyaluronic acid. This version has a lower molecular weight, meaning it’s small enough to get through the epidermis and can provide hydration from within the skin.

How to Use Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid for skin is best to use when your face is still damp. That’s why it’s great in your skincare products like a hyaluronic acid moisturiser and/or SPF.
It’s all about sealing in hydration with hyaluronic acid, so applying right after washing your face when your face is still damp gives it plenty of moisture to lock onto and keep within the epidermis of your skin.

Can You Use Hyaluronic Acid When Pregnant?

Yes! Hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate are perfectly safe to use when pregnant. So, feel free to keep using it in your skincare routine for that perfect glow.
