Hyaluronic acid is a hot skincare ingredient, and if you’re a science nerd like us, you’d want to know WHY!
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polysaccharide (sugar) naturally found in your skin that plays an essential role in maintaining skin barrier function.
It is used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and tissue engineering due to its important biological, chemical and physical activities.
Depending on the molecular size of the hyaluronic acid molecule, HA can provide various levels of hydration:
- Low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid: Offers lasting comfort and hydration for the skin with continued use.
- Mid-molecular weight hyaluronic acid: Offers short-term comfort and hydration. High-molecular weight hyaluronic acid: Offers superb surface hydration and comfort while helping to prevent moisture loss.
The result? Super hydrated skin!
You can find multi-molecular hyaluronic acid in Emogene & Co.’s entire treatment serum lineup, including:
*Pro Tip: to get the most benefit from your Emogene & Co. serums (or any HA application) apply to slightly damp skin. I like to spray Renew Facial Toner directly onto my skin, swipe my face with a cotton ball to remove, then spritz with a few more sprays on my face & leave it. This will increase the moisture HA in the serums, allowing it to penetrate deeper into your skin.
