Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin and is present in skin, joints, eyes, and connective tissue throughout the human body. It protects cell structure by acting as a “water cushion” between the skin cells. As our skin ages and we are exposed to external environmental factors, our natural levels of hyaluronic acid are reduced.
Evidence suggests that topical applications of HA are absorbed through the skin. It “feeds” our existing cells, and may contribute to the formation of collagen. Formulators use this component in serums and cremes designed to hydrate the skin. It is also used in topical creams designed to minimize scar tissue and reduce signs of aging.
With continued use of skin care products that contain HA, moisture levels are raised reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is highly effective in products designed to target facial and neck areas.
