Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural structural component of skin. Hyaluronic acid distributes widely in human body, such as in connective, epithelial, and neural tissues.
Hyaluronic acid can retain moisture; it’s considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water.
This is important with regard to aging because one of the hallmarks of youthful skin is its moisture content. As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability.
Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier. Like sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, and hyaluronic acid can help to repaire skin’s barrier.
Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. That’s what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!
