Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in almost every cell in our body but the highest concentrations is in the skin tissue. Almost 47% of the body’s HA is found there. It appears in the deep dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers.
Why’s HA so magical?
- HA can attracts up to 1000 times its weight in water which means it functions as a humectant and holds water molecules onto the surface of your skin to keep it smooth and hydrated.
- With time, as we aged, our natural production of HA slows down which can lead to premature skin ageing such as fine lines and loss of hydration. Using cosmetics that contains HA will help to restore plumpness & help to erase lines.
- HA is produced naturally in our the body, it doesn’t cause any irritation. Due to its silky, lightweight texture, it is suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive and breakout prone ones.
- It helps promote skin cell regeneration by providing extra hydration to protect our natural skin barrier called “ the hydrolipidic film”.
HA in Centella & Hydraflore skincare:
- It is one of the best ingredient you can use to hydrate and slow down skin ageing. In Centella we only use HA that is of vegetal origin.
- Centella is formulated with both low & high molecular weight of HA. Different molecular weights penetrate to different levels of the skin. HA with lower molecular weight are smaller, they penetrate to deeper layers of skin. They moisture the skin from inside making it look firmer and also visibly plumping fine lines.
- Those with high molecular weights, , remain on the surface, where they hydrate, strengthen the barrier protection & act as a cushion to plump & firm the skin.
