Top skin health benefits of hyaluronic acid:
Hydration: Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent hydrating ingredient for the skin. When applied topically, it helps replenish the skin's moisture levels and improve its texture and elasticity. We use multi molecular weight HA in C21 for multi-layer hydration and active delivery.
Healthy-aging: Hyaluronic acid is also known for its healthy-aging properties. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the skin's overall texture and tone.
Acne prevention: Contrary to popular belief, hydrating the skin can actually help prevent acne. When skin is dehydrated, it can produce excess oil to compensate, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. By keeping the skin hydrated, sebum production is regulated and microbiome health is supported.
Microbiome friendly: Hyaluronic acid is a gentle, non-irritating ingredient that is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is microbiome friendly, meaning it helps support the skin's natural microbiome, which is important for maintaining healthy skin.
Enhanced absorption: Hyaluronic acid can help to enhance the absorption of other skincare actives, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin and boost there overall effectiveness.
Overall, hyaluronic acid is a versatile and effective ingredient in acne safe, microbiome friendly formulas that support the hydration, texture, and overall health of the skin.
