Hyaluronic Acid (also known as HA) is a popular natural skincare ingredient, because it helps to moisturise and plump away wrinkles and fine lines. It’s a natural compound found in our skin, however, our ability to produce it declines with age. This is why it can be found in so many anti-ageing skincare products.
Hyaluronic Acid has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning and aiding tissue repair. It also helps to create a protective barrier against microorganisms and holds together the skin’s structural components collagen and elastin.
When used in skincare products, Hyaluronic Acid can help to prevent water loss and protect the skin from pollutants.
