Hyaluronic Acid - Your skins new BFF

Hyaluronic Acid isn’t as scary as it sounds, don’t be alarmed by the word “acid”. The amazing thing is, Hyaluronic Acid is already found in our skin which means our skin absorbs all its goodness. Hyaluronic Acid is scientifically proven to hold up to 1000 x its own weight in water which means it is a hero when it comes to hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is quickly making its way through every skin care range out there as its incredible results speak for themselves. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the best-known humectants which means it retains moisture in our skin, good news is your skin can never be too hydrated, so if you are wondering if HA is for you the answer is always YES!


Hyaluronic Acid can also be known as Hyaluronic Acid Sodium, Hyaluronic Acid Sodium Salt, Hyaluronate Sodium, Hyalurone Sodium. Even though there are many different scientific names for HA, one thing to look in detail at is Sodium Hyaluronate. Sodium Hyaluronate is the smallest molecule of Hyaluronic Acid which means amazing absorption when it comes to thinner areas of the skin. If a molecule is too big it won’t penetrate to the dermal layers of our skin to really pack a punch of hydration.  Sodium Hyaluronate is a hydrophilic which means it easily mixes with water and helps attract moisture to our skin cells. Here are its other benefits:

  • Restores and strengthens moisture in skin
  • Hydrates
  • Attracts Moisture to the skin
  • Minimises dehydration lines
  • Reduces Skin Inflammation
  • Heals the skin
  • Aids in reducing redness and scarring
  • Minimises appearance of enlarged pores
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

What is the ‘need to know’ ?

Basically, good news is Hyaluronic Acid is good for absolutely everybody and is the perfect addition to your skin care routine. It is a great ‘go to’ product and an amazing introduction to cosmeceutical skincare as your skin won’t go through any sensitivity from using HA. 

You can’t have too much Hyaluronic Acid so applying morning and night and is safe to use daily. Wearing a HA during the day will help prevent that tight dry feeling on your skin, especially with all of our mask wearing. 

How soon will I see results?

Like any cosmeceutical skincare range the right form of HA will start to change your skin cell structure immediately and you will feel an instant hydration boost. Visible changes will start to occur after about two to four weeks of use. 

What makes the perfect pair?

Depending on your concerns Hyaluronic Acid can be layered with many other active ingredients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B3, Vitamin A or V8 Peptides.
