Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic Acid
Like A Drink Of Water For Your Skin
Hyaluronate aka Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication and cellular function. It can hold up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. It also attracts and locks moisture into the skin. Hyaluronic Acid has also been shown to reduce dryness, itching and burning and it offers an excellent environment for the growth of new cells and healing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in great abundance in young skin, synovial fluid and other tissues in humans and animals. Over time, oxy radicals, produced mostly through exposure to pollutants and sunlight, degrade and destroy hyaluronic acid.
Fifty year olds are estimated to have less than half the hyaluronic acid they had in youth.
