description

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that can bind up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This formula focuses on ultra-moisturizing high molecular weight versions for ample surface hydration as well as on medium molecular weight versions, whose strong point is to strengthen the skin barrier and to reinforce the skin’s natural defense & healing mechanisms.

Ingredients & Research

key ingredients:

Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer A new generation, cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid, whose water binding ability is several times greater than the already amazing water-binding ability of Hyaluronic Acid. Also offers longer-term moisturizing benefits.

Sodium Hyaluronate - The most common, salt-form of Hyaluronic Acid that can be found in large and medium molecular weight in the formula.

Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract – The extract of silver ear mushroom known for its amazing water-binding abilities. It contains sugar constituents, including Glucuronic Acid, one of the building blocks of Hyaluronic Acid. It is cosmetically very elegant, non-sticky and has additional antioxidant benefits.

Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid – A smaller molecular weight version of Hyaluronic Acid that is known for its ability to reinforce the skin’s natural defense & healing mechanisms.

Panthenol – A classic skincare ingredient that is a reliable soothing, moisturizing and skin-protecting agent.

Very hydrating without clogging your pores

I used some HAs in the past that were thick and made me breakout. This one is so hydrating and light weight. We'll repurchase..

Such a great product. Every time I use it, my skin gets radiant the next day. While on holiday, I was exposed to excessive amounts of sunshine, salt water, and wind, but this product has helped my skin a lot to recover pretty quickly.

Very nice formulated product!

It's the second time I ordered it and I'm very satisfied. It gets very nice on the skin, it doesn't peel off and it has a plumping effect. Because the hyaluronic creates a skin barrier, I apply it in my morning routine as a final step before moisturizer and SPF.
