Do you know?
Your skin’s dermis layer is made up of about 70% water and 50% of your body’s total hyaluronic acid. Adults have only 1/20 the HA of a baby. As we age, particularly after age 30, the natural hyaluronic acid levels decrease, resulting in the visible signs of skin aging. And after reaching age 70, the hyaluronic acid content in the body will drop by 80%.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is an essential substance that is naturally produced in the human body and found in the Extracellular Metrix (ECM, the tissue that provides structural support to cells). It benefits the tissue fluid viscosity and retains moisture in the tissues, muscles and joints, with its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid also plays a critical role in skin health by increasing skin moisture level, improving skin texture, and reducing wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is generally used in cosmetics, cosmeceuticals and skincare products due to its ability to deliver lasting moisture to the skin and plump up the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Since it is a natural substance that already exists in the body, it is safe and there is no risk of allergic reaction.
