Our hyaluronic acid comes to us from a green laboratory and consists of glucose, soy peptone, and yeast extract. Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide (large sugar molecule) that occurs in various tissues of the body (skin, synovial fluids of joints, connective tissues).
Within our own bodies, it’s responsible for tissue hydration, lubrication, and tissue stability, and it holds 500 times its own weight of water. This is precisely why we love hyaluronic acid: for its ability to hydrate the skin (in comparison to facial oils, which condition and lubricate the skin but don’t deliver hydration). With aging—while we likely become wiser and more content!—we lose our own natural hyaluronic acid in the dermis.
That’s why it’s key to add in hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine to increase its natural moisture levels and keep it looking supple and dewy. We incorporate hyaluronic acid in most of our water-based products such as our face creams and toners and water-based serums because it is such an incredible source of hydration for the skin
