If you’re familiar with hyaluronic acid, you’re probably already aware that it’s one of the most buzzed-about ingredients in skin care to date. This clever compound has been touted as everything from a great moisturiser to the fountain of youth, but there’s a lot more to Hyaluronic Acid than what meets the eye. Read on for the top four things you don’t know about hyaluronic acid (but should).
It’s in your body right now.
In fact, hyaluronic acid is present in all connective tissues and found in high concentrations in the viscous fluid that surrounds your eyes and cushions your joints.

It can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.
Acting like a sponge to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water while ensuring perfect tolerance, even on sensitive skin. It forms an even film on a skin surface, protecting it against external aggressors.
Is Hyaluronic Acid Safe?
Don't be put off by the name, because, unlike some acids, Hyaluronic Acid doesn't strip the skin or cause any downtime when applied topically.
A natural and powerful moisture-binding substance, it delivers gentle hydration to where your skin needs it the most.
It works best when used regularly.
You can maximize the cosmetic effects of hyaluronic acid by applying the product twice a day (“Day and night”). The benefits of Hyaluronic Acid may not be permanent, but, with regular upkeep, they really don’t have to be.
