Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic Acid

By: bmbAdmin | 27 Feb 2013

Hyaluronic Acid is featured in our Anti-Aging Bio Cellulose Facial Mask. Also known as Hyaluronan, Hyaluronate or HA, it is well known and used widely in anti-wrinkle products. It has been touted as “the fountain of youth” by the industry.

A Closer Look

Hyaluronic Acid is a carbohydrate that is found naturally throughout the body in our connective tissues. We can think of HA as a natural lubricant for your body. In the joints it will help keep friction down, for this reason is is used as an injection for many patients with joint problems. Hyaluronic Acid in the skin keeps the collagen moisturized giving longer life to it within the skin. Some people even believe taking it orally will help them live longer life. See the report by Connie Chung for ABC news about a small town in Japan who’s residents seem to live longer and they believe the reason is their diet happens to have high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid.

As with many things we have a lot of it in our youth but as we age our body produces less of it. One of its major draws to the skin care industry is its incomparable capacity to hold water. In this way it works as a moisturizer for the skin to help prevent dryness and flaking. It boosts the life of our own collagen keeping the skin’s elasticity healthy and lessening wrinkles.
