Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body and is most prevalent in skin, ligaments and eyes. It retains water to keep your skin and tissue well lubricated.
Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant and therefore its most obvious benefits are moisturising and hydrating all skin types. Other reported benefits include reducing the appearance of wrinkles and speeding up the healing of cuts and wounds. It can relieve dry eye, reduce inflammation, supress joint pains and maintain the strength of bones.
Hyaluronic Acid is commonly used in hand and body creams and serums. It has anti-wrinkle properties and commonly found in face and eye creams. It is commonly used as a facial serum or facial mask for dry or acne-prone skin. It is an excellent choice in hair conditioners again due to its moisturising properties.
This is the pure powder, without preservatives. It is water-soluble so cannot be used in oil-only blends.
It is Soil Association-approved and vegan.
Our Hyaluronic Acid has been made by producing enzymes via bacterial fermentation. This means that it is both eco-friendly and vegan. Its ability to retain moisture is unrivalled and as such is brilliant in moisturisers, both increasing the moisture levels in skin and reducing moisture loss. These properties can result in smoother and softer skin and can decrease wrinkles. It easily dissolves in water and can bind with water to effectively hydrate skin.
Due to its solubility water needs to be present when formulating - it cannot be used in stand alone oils.
Perfect for dissolving straight into floral water / distilled water / aloe vera juice, then either using alone or adding the mixture to creams or gels.
The recommended dosage for this product is 0.1-1.0%, adding a little at a time. It can take up to 24 hours to dissolve fully.
