What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar molecule that is naturally found in our skin. It has the ability to hold 1,000 times its molecular weight in water which makes skin look plump, smooth and hydrated. It is one of the most potent and safest active ingredients to be used in skincare. Suitable for all skin types and ages, it delivers results without any side effects.
Skin Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid's amazing ability to retain and hold moisture makes it an alpha ingredient among clean skincare ingredients. It reduces fine lines, makes skin look smooth, hydrated, glowing and healthy in an instant. The magical dewy glow and softness imparted by hyaluronic acid is unlike any other active ingredient.
Its ability to go well with other active ingredients and enhance product's overall result is another reason for its popularity. It can be combined with vitamins, retinols and peels for potent results. However, the only group of ingredients which can degrade hyaluronic acid's performance is acids with very low pH levels like glycolic acid. In order to avoid any undesirable results, you should always peruse through product label to make sure these two ingredients are not used together.
