Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is naturally produced in our bodies. For those that want to get a little more technical, it is found in connective, epithelial and neural tissues in our body. Hyaluronic Acid is also present in the Stratum Corneum (the most outer layer of skin) and is believed to play a role in regulating it’s mechanical properties. The average person has roughly 15 grams of HA in their body of which one-third is replaced every day.

What does Hyaluronic Acid do to my skin?
Hyaluronic Acid is highly hygroscopic and can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water. For your skin, this means retaining water in the layers of your skin, maintaining and optimising skin hydration. The Hyaluronic Acid content in skin decreases with age, which may contribute to the development of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing which is why it important to apply Hyaluronic Acid regularly to maintain high levels of Hyaluronic Acid.
How do I use Hyaluronic Acid Serum?
Hyaluronic Acid can be applied morning and evening for best results. If you are using a few serums at a time it is best to apply serums in order of your greatest skin concern.
