Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the dermis (the inner layer of skin). It is synthetically manufactured primarily by means of bacterial cultures. Hyaluronic acid effectively binds moisture to the skin and lasts a very long time. Depending on the molecular structure of hyaluronic acid, it can also form a thin gel film on the skin, firming and smoothing. Dried out skin with an impaired barrier layer finds immediate relief and a "moisture kick" through the use of hyaluronic acid. Its moisturizing lipids are perfect for skin care.
