Firmer skin with hyaluronic acid! In anti-aging care products, this ingredient has already become indispensable. But what’s behind this substance? And what are its properties? Here, you can learn why this substance is indispensable for our skin and what makes the substance so effective.
Let us start at the beginning: Plainly speaking, hyaluronic acid is sugar – to be more precise, it’s an endogenous type of sugar. It creates tiny cushions of water between connective tissue fibers and thereby makes the skin appear firm and smooth. Already one gram of the substance can bind the considerable amount of three liters of moisture – so it’s no wonder that it’s a popular ingredient in the cosmetics industry. But wait a second: if it’s an endogenous substance, why does it have to be supplied to the body from the outside? It’s quite simple: over time, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, the skin becomes slack and wrinkles form. The older we get, the more the production of hyaluronic acid decreases and our complexion can no longer effectively keep the horny layer from drying out.
Sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid, as it is called in the INCI list, is the perfect recipe against the aging of the skin. However, it only becomes fully effective when a combination of all three hyaluronic acids (low, medium and high molecular weight) is used. It supplies the different layers of the skin with long-lasting moisture.
Long-chain hyaluronic acid with high molecular weight has an immediately visible effect. It covers the skin’s surface like a smoothing film and has a moisture-regulating effect.
Medium-chain hyaluronic acid with medium molecular weight is absorbed by the upper layers of the skin, improves the skin’s structure and reduces the depth of wrinkles.
Short-chain hyaluronic acids with low molecular weight works in the lower layers of the skin and effectively maintains moisture in these layers over a long period of time. This way, it supports the skin’s elasticity and supports the skin from the inside. If applied regularly, it can even stimulate the skin’s cells to produce their own hyaluronic acid.
