all about this active ingredient and its benefits
You’ve probably all heard of it: hyaluronic acid has become the ingredient cosmetics flagship. But do you really know what it is for and in what types of products you can find it? DESSANGE tells you everything about this magical asset and how it is used in its products.
What is hyaluronic acid?
First of all, know that hyaluronic acid is naturally present in all living organisms. In humans, more than 50% of hyaluronic acid is found in the skin and more mainly in the dermis. This molecule is essential for the structure of the skin since it contributes to maintenance of its density, elasticity and hydration. Hyaluronic acid is repeatedly replenished by our body, however, its production weakens with age. This is why this ingredient is very often used in anti-aging cosmetic care: it provides a plumping effect, hydrates and smoothes the skin.
It exists two types of hyaluronic acids :
- High molecular weight hyaluronic acid : he acts on the surface of the epidermis by forming a film that will maintain the hydration of the skin and have a tightening, smoothing and plumping effect immediate.
- Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid: its small size allows it to penetrate the skin and of strengthen and stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid naturally present in the body. This form is very effective in anti-wrinkle and firming treatments.
