Skin ageing is a multifactorial process. Youthful skin retains its turgor, resilience and pliability due to its high contents of water. Daily lifestyle, environmental aggressions and the normal process of ageing cause loss of moisture. The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid that has unique capacity in retaining water.
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a naturally-occurring substance in skin known for its capacity to attract and hold onto 1000x its molecular weight in moisture. Hyaluronic acid is part of the skin’s youth-supporting matrix and works to keep every aspect of skin stable, safeguarded and constantly renewed. It works overtime by replenishing skin to enhance a healthy, supple look and feel.
