Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer: what is it?

Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer: what is it?

Hyaluronic Acid: What’s the Big Deal?

Skincare companies are touting hyaluronic acid as the latest and greatest miracle ingredient. There is a reason why! Hyaluronic acid (HA), is an extremely effective humectant, attracting water to skin cells. The unique structure of this ingredient allows it to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, adjusting its moisture rate based on the given humidity. This keeps skin balanced and ensures that your skin is not holding excess moisture. When applied topically, it creates a layer over the skin that allows it to breathe, absorb, and hold moisture. 

But why is moisture in your skin so important in the first place? Proper hydration encourages optimum cell function. Well-moisturized skin enables cells to repair themselves and produces new, healthy cells. When there is a breakdown of cells – whether from free radicals or age-related deteriorations – wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots start to appear.

 

Why is Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer considered a miracle beauty product?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound in each of us. It is at its peak when we are new to this world; babies have oh-so-touchable skin because Hyaluronic acid is at work keeping it soft and smooshy. While we typically don't start seeing wrinkles and other signs of aging until our 30s or 40s, our HA production begins to drastically decline in our early 20s. To counteract this drop in HA production, take a proactive approach and apply HA regularly to help keep skin performing well no matter what our age.

HA can be found in your skin and connective tissue and is responsible for binding water to the skin and firming its structure. Since HA production diminishes with age, it's important to maintain proper levels of this substance in your daily routine, often in conjunction with Vitamin C to assist in skin penetration.

What version of Hyaluronic Acid do you use in Sally B’s Skin Yummies skincare products?

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring carbohydrate that is found in the connective tissues of vertebrates, once mainly sourced from rooster comb. While there is still Hyaluronic Acid made from rooster comb available, we choose to use one that is made from a fermentation process created in a lab (which makes it vegan approved!). Sally B’s uses a powder HA, as liquid HA contains preservatives and can also contain Propylene Glycol and alcohol (both no-no's in our book). Because these ingredients are inside another ingredient, they are not always listed on labels.

Sally B’s Skin Yummies has a whole collection of organic skincare moisturizers that include Hyaluronic Acid. It is essential for these products to become part of your daily routine to maintain that all-important moisture in your skin. While it’s easy to take a reactive approach to skincare – treating dry skin when you’re already itchy or covering up wrinkles when they first start appearing – thoughtfully selecting products now can be valuable down the road. Hyaluronic acid will absolutely keep your skin looking and feeling its best for years.
