1 Hyaluronic Acid provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water. With age, the ability of the skin to produce HA decreases. This chemical is found in both the deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers of the skin. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of HA that helps keep the skin stay young and healthy.
50% of the Hyaluronic Acid in our body is found in the skin. HA and Collagen are vital to maintaining the skin’s layers and structure. It is the collagen that gives the skin its firmness but it is the HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. Young skin is smooth and highly elastic because it contains high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, which helps skin stay healthy. As we grow older, the body loses its ability to maintain this same concentration in the skin. With decreasing levels of HA in the skin, so goes the ability of the skin to hold water. The skin becomes drier and loses its ability to maintain adequate hydration. Hyaluronic acid acts as a space filler by binding to water and thus keeping the skin wrinkle-free. The collagen in our skin also loses its moisture, and the skin sags and wrinkles. By the age if 50, it is estimated that we can have as little as half the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin as compared to our 20’s. https://www.hyalogic.com/about-ha/about-hyaluronic-acid/
Many skin care products use Hyaluronate or Hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient to enhance the skin, remove wrinkles and restore its elasticity – is all this true? Are these claims scientifically based and does adding HA justify such exorbitant prices? Yes, HA works and people pay a fortune for products that contain this very expensive ingredient. Our new Nature Fresh Skin food also contains HA but it is still affordable. We strive to keep our prices in line by including a lot of other active ingredients and selling them at a reasonable price. The new Face Food is a unique vegan friendly combination of plant-based oils and skin nutrients. The use of calcium, vitamins and enzymes ensures a more rapid turnover of skin cells so the visible effects are seen in a shorter time – fresh new skin. We do not test on animals – so we being with ourselves. For over 1 ½ years the formulations have been shares with friends and family and now they keep asking for more!
