Not only does this potent blue  serum contain purposeful targeted ingredients such as botanical  retinol from ​Vigna aconitifolia​ seed and oligopeptides derived from  hibiscus, but it also delivers plumping and smoothing hydration using a vegan hyaluronic acid.

What is Vegan Hyaluronic Acid? 

The vegan hyaluronic acid we have included in Fullmoon Serum is derived from ​Cassia Augustifolia (aka senna). This polysaccharide is a water-binding sugar that is known to retain moisture and add  radiance to the skin by mediating the impact of stress on the skin by suppressing cutaneous cortisol. 

Increased levels of stress and cortisol cause the skin to become dehydrated, accelerate  transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and prematurely ages the skin by making fine lines and wrinkles  more pronounced.

Topical application of ​Cassia Augustifolia ​mimics the effects of hyaluronic acid to  moisturize and soften the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and provide  long-lasting hydration. 

Cassia Angustifolia​ Seed Polysaccharide has been clinically proven to be a more potent hydrator  than hyaluronic acid (the industry gold standard hydration ingredient), over the course of 24 hours.​ 

Figure 8 shows the results of hyaluronic acid vs. ​Cassia Augustifolia​ in hydrating the human stratum  corneum where ​Cassia Augustifolia Seed Polysaccharide ​gave a better long term moisturization than  sodium hyaluronate. 

Some of the most interesting research was done to illustrate the benefits of ​Cassia Augustifolia​ on stressed skin.

Stress is a well-known factor that increases dullness and dryness of the skin. ​Cassia  Augustifolia Seed Polysaccharide ​significantly enhances skin complexion to combat dullness while hydrating skin.​​ Figure 9 shows the results of this study. 

Who should use skincare products with vegan hyaluronic acid? 

Pretty much everyone can benefit from including a vegan hyaluronic acid in his or her skincare  routine.

This gentle and effective moisturizer restores hydration within the skin and helps to mitigate  the effects of stress on the health of the skin.

Combined with the other innovative ingredients in  Fullmoon Serum, vegan hyaluronic acid amplifies the skin nourishing impact of this serum. This serum is ideal for anyone looking to reduce the signs of aging skin, hydrate sensitive skin or enhance  their natural healthy glow.
