What is hyaluronic acid and what does it do for your skin?

Posted by on

We use only effective, good for you ingredients in our products. This includes our new Hydrating Hand Sanitizer, which is super moisturizing thanks to three star ingredients: hyaluronic acid, prickly pear oil, and glycerin. We’re here to breakdown the essential ingredients that make this product a total game-changer. First ingredient in the line up is hyaluronic acid.

What is hyaluronic acid?

While "acid" may sound intimidating, don't worry, it’s actually really good for you. And while hyaluronic acid serum is a common item in a good skincare regimen, it’s also naturally produced in your skin. In fact, it’s naturally found in all parts of the body, but most prominently in your skin. Hyaluronic acid in your skin naturally degrades over time, has a high turnover rate, and gets impacted by free radicals. This is why it's such an important addition to the products you use every day.

Why is hyaluronic acid good for your skin?

Like a tall glass of water for your skin, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000x its weight in water. This allows it to bind water to your skin cells which deliver moisture replenishment to all layers of your skin. It’s also a humectant, so it draws in moisture from the environment and provides lasting hydration.

How can I find products with hyaluronic acid?

To spot hyaluronic acid in the ingredients lists of your products, it also goes by a few other names: sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronan, and glycoaminoglycan. Let the moisture and lubricant effects of hyaluronic acid be a part of your daily routine (and what better way to kick it off than with our Hydrating Hand Sanitizer!).
