Hyaluronic Acid is the hydrating hero to know. It’s a powerful humectant known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, which means skin’s natural moisture levels get a much-needed boost.
Learn more about this ingredient:
+ What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic Acid’s main benefits are its ability to replenish skin and improve moisturization—leading to a visibly smoother, softer, healthier-looking complexion.
+ What is the difference between Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate?
The difference is their size. Hyaluronic Acid has a higher molecular weight that allows it to sit atop the surface of the skin and prevent water loss. Sodium Hyaluronate is smaller—giving it the ability to penetrate the top layer of skin and help improve hydration from within.
+ Can you use hyaluronic acid and vitamin c serum together?
Yes, you can. Hyaluronic Acid helps with hydration and Vitamin C can help fight against free radicals while fading the look of dark spots. (In fact, they’re a perfect match when formulated right: our Vitamin C Serum contains Sodium Hyaluronate to replenish and visibly smooth!)
+ Should you use hyaluronic acid before retinol?
If you have dry or sensitive skin—or perhaps you’re new to Retinol—you might consider using a light, Hyaluronic Acid product before applying your resurfacing cream or treatment to help prevent Retinol irritation.
