Hyaluronic Acid

sodium hyaluronate

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance made of sodium hyaluronate and water. Sodium hyaluronate is known for its stunning capacity to attract and hold onto 1000 times its weight in water. It is the key molecule required for skin to absorb and retain water. This powerful humectant attracts water from the environment and traps it in your skin. Its ability to draw and hold water continually keeps skin moisturized throughout the day.

Research

sodium hyaluronate

  • An intra-subject, randomized, assessor-blinded study demonstrated all day hydration and barrier function effects of a hyaluronic acid 1%, glycerin 5%, and gotu kola (Centella asiatica) stem cells extract. A single daily application of the ingredients induced a long-lasting (up to 24 hours) hydrating and moisturizing effect, simultaneously improving the skin barrier function in healthy women. [1]
  • There is a direct relationship between moisture levels in the skin and its susceptibility to environmental factors that accelerate the aging process. Without moisture, skin gradually loses its youthful skin turgor, resilience, and pliability. [2] [3]
