This essential fatty acid occurs naturally in our bodies, but like collagen, its concentrations naturally decline as we age. Hyaluronic acid’s main purpose is to help lubricate the joints, while boosting collagen to help plump up your skin and keep it taut and youthful as you age. Hyaluronic acid has truly incredible water retaining properties and for this reason is referred to as a hydrophilic (water-loving). Just one gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to a whopping six liters of water, pure magic for your skin as hydration truly is the key to youthful skin! With regular topical application of this wonder ingredient, you will notice a more supple and plump complexion.
