Hyaluronic acid: An active ingredient that is naturally present in the body
Hyaluronic acid molecules exist naturally in our bodies, particularly in the cartilage, the eyes, and above all the skin. There are two types of hyaluronic acid: the type with a high molecular weight, which remains at the surface of the skin in the epidermis, where it retains water and prevents dehydration, and the type with a low molecular weight, which penetrates into the dermis, the deep layer of the skin, providing an invigorating effect.
Hyaluronic acid is constantly renewed, but with age, its production slows down: at the age of 50, our epidermis contains only half of its initial capital, leading to skin slackening and wrinkles. But there’s good news: we can now make it using a process of biosynthesis by fermentation, for example using grains of wheat and lactic acid bacteria. We can then integrate it into targeted care products.
Exceptional hydrating properties
Its properties are highly valued in cosmetics. Hyaluronic acid invigorates the skin and provides lasting hydration, thanks to its exceptional hygroscopic properties. Each molecule can trap up to 1,000 times its weight in water, creating a natural reservoir, which releases water over a long period, providing the skin with direct hydration.
Hyaluronic acid therefore contributes to the indirect hydration of the skin, by forming a “water cushion” with a film-forming effect, which prevents water loss at the surface and smooths out small imperfections. The skin appears smoother and brighter, thanks to its plumpness, clear complexion, and reduced signs of fatigue and aging.
