What Is It?

Hyaluronic Acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a type of molecule composed partly of sugars. Hyaluronic acid is a natural structural component of skin, and, present in connective tissue throughout the human body. It has a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer.

 

Why We Added It To Our 1A All-Day Mask?

Hyaluronic Acid is able to help skin retain moisture and provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability. Hyaluronic Acid promotes a healthy barrier that makes skin look and feel softer, smoother, and plumper—all hallmarks of healthy skin. Since moisture is vital for younger looking skin, having Hyaluronic Acid in our 1A All-Day Mask consequently prevents premature aging, improves the appearance of fine lines, and helps create a healthy skin barrier. We use two forms of Hyaluronic Acid (High Molecular Weight and Low Molecular Weight) to ensure that your skin gets the most out of this amazing ingredient.
