Hyaluronic Acid

This high-end active ingredient, very effective at low doses, is known for its intense hydrating * and plumping power. It is the essential ingredient in your “lifting”, tensing and reshaping treatments and in your anti-wrinkle hydrating creams.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of connective tissue: skin, cartilage, synovial fluid, cornea … It is a glycosaminoglycan and it is one of the most important elements of the extracellular matrix. This matrix, which also includes proteins like collagen and elastin, forms the support structure of the skin. Hyaluronic acid has the property of attracting and retaining a large amount of water (up to 20 times its weight in water) by forming an elastic gel. It is this capacity, among others, which gives its volume and elasticity to young skin. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin gradually decreases and the skin loses its “plumpness”.

In cosmetics, hyaluronic acid does not penetrate to the dermis, and therefore will not “replace” natural hyaluronic acid. However, its exceptional water retention capacity is recognized as very interesting for hydrating * and “plumping” the skin.
