Hyaluronic Acid is a key ingredient for well-hydrated skin, particularly because of its ability to absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Thanks to this absorption capacity, it fills the micro-spaces between skin cells, making skin firmer and plumper.
Hyaluronic acid is well-known in the world of cosmetic surgery and can also be found in many cosmetic products. The molecule is naturally present in the body, but after 30, its production diminishes. This reduction of hyaluronic acid in our epidermal cells is responsible for the phenomenon of ageing, including the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin.
Depending on the type of hyaluronic acid, and specifically on its molecular weight, cosmetic treatments will stimulate cellular activity at different levels of the skin.
The lower the molecular weight, the further the acid can penetrate the skin, thus tackling deeper wrinkles.
