What is Hyaluronic Acid and Why is it Important?
Scientifically, the molecule of hyaluronic acid is known for holding 1000 times its weight in water, making it a humectant that’s always pulling in moisture to deliver it straight into your skin.
Youthful skin retains its turgor, resilience and pliability, among others, due to its high content of water. Daily external injury, in addition to the normal process of aging, causes loss of moisture. The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid (HA) that has unique capacity in retaining water.
Bodylines Hyaluronic Acid Serum has two different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid... what’s the significance?
The down-low is this: The molecule sizes of different hyaluronic acids vary from bigger molecules that sit closer to the skin’s surface to smaller ones that go in deeper into the epidermis. Therefore, for a hyaluronic acid to be truly effective in delivering instant and long-lasting effect it needs two different forms of molecular weights.
The high molecular weight Hyaluronic acid (HMW HA) sits on the skins surface and attracts water, and intensely hydrates the skin, providing an instant smooth and tightening effect of the skin.
The extra low molecular weight (ELMW HA) traverses to the deep dermal layers, rehydrating skin cells over time and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
