Learn About Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid, also known as sodium hyaluronate, is a naturally occurring water-based moisturizer found naturally in our skin. Hyaluronic acid has unique moisturizing properties; as a humectant, it's capable of attracting water to itself. Hyaluronic acid can also retain up to 1,000x its weight in water, making it the ultimate moisturizing ingredient. Moisturizers featuring hyaluronic acid will lock hydration into the skin and protect against transepidermal water loss.
