What is Hyaluronic acid? Most people have the misunderstanding of the word “acid”, thinking that it would be something corrosive or harmful to human skin. However, Hyaluronic acid would be deemed a special case. Its molecules are gel-like and have moisture retaining properties, which makes this a good water-binding agent to keep one’s skin hydrated. In fact, our own human bodies produce some of this acid.
According to scientific studies, Hyaluronic acid aids the human body in skin hydration, increases collagen production, fights free radicals, helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity and it also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to aid in the recovery of wounds. It is also capable of holding water up to 1000 times its weight within our skin cells, thus making it an excellent moisturizer. Who knew that this particular acid had so many benefits?
Then again, some may ask, “If our bodies produce Hyaluronic acid, why do we need more?”
On average, the human body contains around 15 grams of Hyaluronic acid. However, due to the natural process of synthesizing and daily degradation , we lose about a third of of that. Furthermore, the older we get, the less Hyaluronic acid our bodies produce. This is the reason why many anti-aging products contain Hyaluronic acid. For plastic surgeons, it is a common practice to inject the acid into sunken / depressed parts of the skin to make it plump and even, but now you no longer need to get injections to enjoy the benefits of Hyaluronic acid. You can start using our products to get the soft, smooth and hydrated skin that you desire!
