Hyaluronic acid: what you need to know?

Many cosmetic products are utilizing the advantages of hyaluronic acid (HA) due to its skin benefits. So let's discuss what is hyaluronic acid and why is it so important in skin care products?

An important component of our body’s intercellular matrix is the high molecular weight hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs.

Did You know that hyaluronic acid of around 15 grams is present in an adult weighing 70 kilograms, out of which half stays in the skin.

A portion of the skin's hyaluronic acid is located in its upper epidermis layer. Two categories categorize hyaluronic acid, high and low molecular weight HA, based on its molecular weight.

An incredible moisture-binding ingredient is the main type of hyaluronic acid found in our skin, with a high molecular weight acting as a sponge and attracting 1000 times more water than it's size. The hyaluronic acid present in our skin can hold as much as six liters of water with a single gram, due to its incredible water-binding ability. The skin considers it one of the finest water-binding ingredients due to its properties. Hyaluronic acid in the epidermis attracts and retains water to provide important moisturizing benefits. In addition, it aids in promoting skin's elasticity, lessening inflammation and reestablishing the protective barrier of the skin, thereby reducing wrinkles arising from dehydration. For dry or irritated skin, products with this valuable active ingredient are recommended.

Incorporating hyaluronic acid into your daily skin care regimen is effortless because it is highly compatible with a wide range of other active ingredients, and it is suitable for all skin types. You can use hyaluronic acid twice a day, and it is most beneficial when it is present in the cosmetic product at a concentration of 1-2%. For optimal results, it is recommended to use products containing hyaluronic acid in combination with vitamin C or glycolic acid.
