Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Also called:
Macromolecular Hyaluronic Acid Small-molecule Hyaluronic Acid Hyaluronan Hyaluron

Hyaluronic acid (HA)* is a prominent component of diverse anti-aging beauty formulations. This ingredient is commonly found in many highly effective moisturizers, creams, and serums as well as popular injectable fillers. Why do HA containing products deliver results? And why do celebrity skincare companies extensively include this compound in their advanced creations?  Let’s discover the secret of Hyaluronan's extraordinary success.  

This high-profile compound is an integral part of the human skin extracellular matrix (ECM, the mass between the cells). Along with collagen and elastin, Hyaluronic acid forms the scaffolding of the dermal tissue. Its main function is the hydration of the tissue. HA is able to attach and hold colossal amounts of water molecules. It prevents dermal dehydration, consecutive wrinkling, and sagging. Unfortunately, intrinsic and extrinsic aging of the uppermost layer of our body leads to a drastic decrease in Hyaluronan content. The obvious result of this process is the formation of fine lines and coarse wrinkles. Sounds frustrating, isn’t it? The good news is both topical application and intradermal injections of Hyaluronan combat water loss with remarkable effectiveness. It is a potent humectant and does stellar work both on the surface and inside the epidermis, depending on its molecule size (smaller forms properly permeate deeper and moisturize skin from within).  

Hyaluronic acid's beneficial potential is not limited to its humectant activity. It also:

  •  activates the production of collagen and elastin, the most important structural proteins in dermal tissue. It recovers skin volume, plumpness, and firmness.  
  • demonstrates antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, catches and neutralizes hostile free radicals, and inhibits the cascade of inflammatory processes. Thus, it fights photoaging and inflammation,  
  • supports wound-healing and tissue restoration.  


Hyaluronic acid's amazing benefits made it a subject for large-scale scientific research.  Its outcome clearly states the outstanding effectiveness of HA in wrinkle correction, skin hydration, and turgor improvement.   

*Also known as Hyaluronan or Sodium hyaluronate.
