What In The World Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a compound that our skin naturally produces. It’s best known for its ability to protect living cells from impact within our connective tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural moisturizer. One gram of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to six litters of water! The average human carries around 15 grams of Hyaluronic Acid in their connective tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid is a key component in your skin’s structure. It works to bind together collagen and elastin (proteins within our skin). Increased levels will promote a smooth, yet firm complexion.
Decreased production of Hyaluronic Acid breaks down healthy skin, creating wrinkles and stretch marks. Your skin needs additional Hyaluronic Acid to retain firmness and suppleness.
Anywhere in the body where connective tissue is found (skin, joints, tendons, hair, bone, etc), Hyaluronic Acid works to separate and protect functioning living cells. It is incredible important to our health and beauty!
- Here at TreeActiv, we never use ingredients that hurt animals in any way - most Hyaluronic Acid comes from chicken beaks. We only use vegan Hyaluronic Acid in our products, which is derived from sugar, soy, and yeast.
What Can Hyaluronic Acid Do For Your Skin?
Since the day you were born, your skin has been naturally producing Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid’s main function is to provide cushion and protection for the living cells that make up our anatomic structure. It is a key component to our entire being. Hyaluronic Acid keeps us young, agile, and beautiful. Unfortunately, the half-life (time it takes for our bodies to excrete a given compound or chemical) of Hyaluronic Acid, is extremely short. It is for this reason, it is important our bodies continue to produce it at a fairly rapid pace. As I’m sure you know, we all grow old. Studies have shown that our bodies begin to decrease production of Hyaluronic Acid as early as eighteen years of age! Our skin will begin showing signs of this (i.e wrinkles and dark-spots) as early as age thirty. This is why you will find that many skincare products use Hyaluronic Acid as a very effective natural ingredient.
One of the things that Hyaluronic Acid does best is retain water. It therefore works wonders as a natural moisturizer. Able to hold 1,000 times it’s own weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid will keep your moisture levels balanced, protecting you from itchiness and dryness. Hyaluronic Acid will also work to rebuild and maintain a smooth complexion. By binding proteins in your skin’s structural system, Hyaluronic Acid reduces wrinkles and provides your skin with firmness and elasticity. It is essential to the health of your skin that you regain and preserve proper levels of Hyaluronic Acid. Try it today in one of our great products.
