What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a compound naturally present in the human body.  It is highly concentrated in fluids in the eyes and the joints, where it acts as a cushion and lubricant due to its moisture retention capabilities.  Able to hold up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water, hyaluronic acid is a truly unique compound.

It’s not surprising to learn that hyaluronic acid is utilized in a variety of medicinal ways to treat a host of different conditions.  It is used to treat cataracts, cancer, improve osteoarthritis, and promote the healing of wounds, just to name a few.  

The reason we’re talking about hyaluronic acid is due to its dermatologic relevance.  When applied topically, hyaluronic acid works in a number of ways to enhance the health and appearance of the complexion.

  • Hydration.  Hyaluronic acid provides deep, rich moisture to the skin, infusing hydration down to help stimulate skin cell activity and provide a plump, vibrant complexion.  At the same time, its humectant properties draw moisture from the surrounding environment for lasting hydration benefits.  
  • Healing.  Hyaluronic acid boosts the skin’s natural healing processes, decreasing healing times and soothing inflammation, irritation, and redness.
  • Stimulation.  The anti-aging benefits of hyaluronic acid come from its ability to stimulate skin cell proliferation and help boost cellular production of collagen and elastin.  Not only does it provide a healthy environment for skin cells to work, but it also activates them to do so.
  • Enhancement.  Hyaluronic acid fortifies the skin’s natural barriers, locking in moisture and nutrients in while keeping damaging age-factors out.
  • Conditioning.  The hydrating power of hyaluronic acid gives the skin a softer, more supple look and feel.  Almost instantaneously after applying Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, you’ll notice a more vibrant complexion with a silky-smooth finish.

Hyaluronic acid truly is an amazing compound, which is why Cosmedica features it in a number of its amazing, anti-aging products.
