The use of hyaluronic acid in the cosmetics sector dates back to 1996. It possesses the capacity to retain water at an equivalent rate of thousands of times its own weight. For this reason, its use helps to hydrate the epidermis, reconstructing the fibres that bind together the skin’s tissues and providing the latter with better shape.
Undoubtedly, the standout feature of hyaluronic acid is its ability to retain liquid. When we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin also decreases, as the cutaneous cells lose their capacity to produce this particle and thus we lose hydration and wrinkles begin to appear.
For this reason, hyaluronic acid is presented as a highly effective active ingredient in the elimination of wrinkles and skin folds, thus stimulating the natural production of collagen.
Therefore, the creams that use this active ingredient help to conserve the skin’s youthfulness whilst keeping it hydrated.
