What is Hyaluronic acid and what are the benefits?
According to leading dermatologists, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin. The molecule holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air.
Also known in the skincare industry as a natural humectant that not only helps attract water to the surface of the skin, but also deliver hydration and nutrients to the deeper layers as well. This helps skin to keep itself hydrated on a regular basis.
Because hyaluronic acid has such an amazing reputation as a potent humectant, it has become a popular skin care ingredient that's included in all kinds of products targeting different types of skin issues, and because it is naturally produced by the human body, it is generally good for most skin types.
Great for targeting aging concerns; in fact, it pairs wonderfully with skin saviors such as Vitamin C and retinol (Vitamin A), enhancing their potency and effectiveness. But even if aging skin isn’t one of your current concerns, the moisturizing ability of hyaluronic acid is so beneficial that everyone should include it as part of their skin care regimens.
Popular amongst many skincare brands and available in moisturisers, peels, injectables and more, you can find HA on labels everywhere. One thing that is often hard to understand is that even though it is found in many products unfortunately the molecule can often be too large for our skin to absorb.
It's for this reason we have developed a Hyaluronic Acid serum, B QUENCHED is filled with only 3 ingredients, (hyaluronic acid, water and radish root) the serum is light weight, easily absorbed and has an incomparable ability to provide all skin types with an immediate hydration boost, plumping and rejuvenating the complexion.
This is also an important ingredient in our B Nurtured, anti ageing peptide moisturiser which helps the skin look firmer and tighter as well as reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases as we get older and along with a healthy skincare routine and staying hydrated with lots of water, we always recommend a diet high in vegetables and fruit's / berries loaded with antioxidants to protect the skin from inflammation, this in turn also helps the body retain it.
