It is the primary ingredient in our: Medica Rejuv anti aging serum, Elixir Cellular Renewal Concentrate, PrO-Care Non Stop Hydration Mask, PrO-Care Anti Aging Mask. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most important components of the skin matrix. While collagen and elastin are responsible for the structural integrity of the skin matrix, Hyaluronic Acid is the filler that holds this structure together. it is the biggest molecule that surrounds the skin cells and its primary function is to cushion, lubricate and hydrate. A healthy skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid reflected in a full, smooth and firm complexion. Every day stresses affect the condition of our skin and depletes its hyaluronic acid content even at a young age. The skin starts to thin out, becomes dehydrated, dull and mildly sagged. The main characteristic of hyaluronic acid in restoring the skin's health and volume comes from its ability to draw and hold moisture, up to 1000 times its weight in water. The increase in hydration does not only smooth out wrinkles, it insures the delivery of nutrients to the skin cells as well as the removal of toxins from these same cells. Hyaluronic Acid assists in cell proliferation helping tissue repair and wound healing, it contributes to the resiliency and suppleness of the skin and fights inflammatory conditions. Additionally, an abundance of Hyaluronic Acid aids the skin in protecting itself from UVB rays, prevents potential sun damage and the formation of sun spots. Because of all these characteristics, Hyaluronic Acid is touted as the skin's fountain of youth and is a key ingredient in most anti aging quality skin care products.
As a topical ingredient Hyaluronic Acid comes in two forms: large molecule and low molecule. Large molecule Hyaluronic Acid does not have the ability to penetrate the skin and will only draw moisture from the air and hydrate the topical layer of the skin. Low molecule Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to penetrate deep through the skin and replenish its depleted Hyaluronic Acid content to more youthful levels, restoring volume, skin density and hydration from within.
The unique formula of our prO-care Elixir Cellular renewal serum was designed to address both these two important skin rejuvenation concerns synergetic-ally. Its high content of ecocert Hyaluronic Acid is composed of 20 percent large molecule Hyaluronic Acid to address the hydration of the skin surface, and 80 percent penetrable low molecule Hyaluronic Acid to restore volume, replenish hydration and revitalize the skin's deep cellular make up from within.
