21 Nov Hero Ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is one of the absolute hero ingredients when it comes to skin hydration. It can be found in many premium moisturisers thanks to its ability to keep skin moisturised, plump and looking and feeling healthy. But what is it and what products contain hyaluronic acid?
What is hyaluronic acid?
You might find it labelled as HA on your skincare products, but the hero ingredient is actually naturally occurring in the human body. It is effective in keeping skin hydrated because it helps cells retain as much moisture as possible. One gram of hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up to six litres of water, as well as helping them to regulate moisture levels. However, levels in our body can be degraded by free radical mechanisms as we age, so applying it via skincare products will assist your skin in maintaining optimum hydration levels.
What skincare products contain hyaluronic acid?
SWISSCODE Pure Hyaluron contains the highest concentration of clinical grade hyaluronic acid and is an absolute cult favourite. An excellent water-binding molecule, it assists the skin with its essential daily challenges – soothing irritation and providing youthful translucency. With Hyaluron levels diminishing dramatically with age, regular use of SWISSCODE Hyaluron will deliver unrivalled buoyancy and radiance in the skin. In fact, this hero product increases skin’s moisture levels by 20% in less than two hours and enhances the absorption of Vitamin C in the skin by three times.
The ultimate skincare ritual, these anti-ageing ampules hydrate while supporting a youthful complexion. The intensive concentrate combines anti-ageing peptides with short and long chained HA to revitalize, plump and regenerate the structure of the skin whilst restoring and replenishing the skin’s moisture reserves.
