Star ingredient of the last decade, there is a reason why hyaluronic acid is a part of many people’s skincare regimen. Incredibly potent at a small dose, hyaluronic acid is known for its powerful plumping and hydrating effects. It has the ability to bind water to collagen and thus give the skin a plump and smooth appearance almost immediately.
Hyaluronic acid is safe and well tolerated by all skin types.
While most hyaluronic acid on the market is derived from animals, ours is vegan.Skin concerns:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Loss of hydration
- Dry and rough skin
Use: Add a dash of powder to a neutral face cream or body lotion (see below for ideas on how to use).
Size: 1 g / 5 g (powder)
INCI: Sodium hyaluronate
- 0.1 to 0.5% in an unscented face cream or body lotion
- 0.1 to 1% in a hydrosol
After incorporating and mixing the hyaluronic acid in a base, wait for about 10-15 minutes for the powder to absorb the water. Mix it again and use!
Hyaluronic acid has a natural tendency to thicken a product. Keep this in mind when adding to a face cream. For example, adding 1% hyaluronic acid to water will give it a “runny gel” consistency. Adding 1% hyaluronic acid to a cream will give the cream a firmer and thicker consistency.
