This is our highest molecular weight hyaluronic acid, coming in at 1.0 - 1.5 Daltons. Our hyaluronic acid is plant-based, vegan, and non-GMO. Hyaluronic acid is a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations are occurring in tissues such as skin, cartilage and eyes. Providing protection to cell structures, HA is the natural gel between skin cells that serves as a water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin may help hydrate skins intracellular reservoir, racing skins moisture level, and smoothing down age lines. Hyaluronic acid helps to preserve the characteristics of youthful and healthy skin: suppleness, elasticity and tone.
