What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid, in fancy terms, is an anionic, nonsulfated glycosaminoglycan that is found throughout our connective, epithelial and neural tissues. HA is also known as a humectant. Many water-based moisturizers and serums are infused with humectants like hyaluronic acid because of its ability to hold onto water (up to 1,000 times its weight in water!) and help boost hydration for all skin types.
What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do To Your Skin?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and it’s many benefits for the skin is talked about everywhere by those who care about their skin’s health! But - What does it actually do for your skin?
HA plays a major role in the synthesis of extracellular matrix molecules and interacts with the surrounding environment through the epidermal layer. This is all just a fancy way of saying that HA naturally exists in our skin and helps to build part of the skin’s layers.
Large amounts of HA found in your skin is said to help maintain youthful and hydrated looking skin because of its ability to hold onto moisture. As we age, the natural amounts of HA in our skin start to decline significantly!
Ahh! - Help you, help your skin!
How do I help my skin?
Make sure you are taking good care of your skin and choosing the right products for you! - HA’s are nonreactive and work safely with other ingredients - They work well with retinols and vitamin C as an anti-aging regimen. These 3 ingredients together will help boost collagen production, reduce dark spots and help reduce any visible signs of aging.
The HA found in our Fullmoon Serum works as a humectant and will draw in and hold water, giving your skin that plump and dewy look! Not to mention that it is also infused with a botanical retinol and vitamin C. It will continue to keep your skin's moisture throughout the day.
The HA found in our Fullmoon Serum also pairs well with our Green Cream moisturizer. Green Cream is our double plant-based retinol powerhouse of a cream.
Let’s help our skin hold onto moisture for a little longer! - naturally of course.
