  • filling wrinkles
  • lip augmentation

Benefits of It

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most used ingredients in cosmetology.  Due to the remarkable water-binding properties, it has a strong moisturizing effect.  What other benefits does it bring to the skin? Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, responsible for its proper hydration.

It absorbs the skin like a sponge – this property is used in cosmetics with a moisturizing effect.

It quickly soothes, refreshes, and relieves the skin, e.g., after sun exposure.

It is especially recommended for the care of dry and over-dry skin.

What is in It

Cosmetics use hyaluronic acid and its derivatives in the form of sodium hyaluronate and potassium hyaluronate. This ingredient is obtained by biotechnological methods using the Streptococcus strain of streptococci. It is very safe – it does not cause allergies and does not irritate the skin and can be used all year round as it has no photosensitizing effect. It can have a different molecular weight – HA with a low molecular weight is characterized by better permeability to the deeper layers of the epidermis, while a higher one – creates a hydrophilic on the skin that protects against trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) and the adverse effects of external factors. Often in cosmetics, hyaluronic acids of various molecular weights are combined for comprehensive skin care and protection. In cosmetics, HA is present in three structural forms:

  • macromolecular – stays on the skin, creating a thin film that protects against water evaporation,
  • medium molecular weight – strongly moisturizes the stratum corneum, giving an immediate but short-term smoothing and firming effect,
  • short-molecular – penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, giving it strong and long-lasting hydration.
