Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the form of a thick gel that lubricates parts of the body such as muscles and joints as well as connective tissue like the skin.
It is naturally present in human tissues where it serves as a connective tissue organizer and water holding substance.
It is found in both layers of the skin –in the dermis and the epidermis, where it has a protective, structure stabilizing and shock-absorbing function.
As we age, the content of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases, which may contribute to loss of freshness, moisture and elasticity in the skin and the development of wrinkles.
- Hyaluronic acid’s ability to penetrate the skin and unique moisturizing and viscoelastic properties make the skin softened and restore its elasticity, thereby a significant anti-wrinkle effect is achieved.
