6 Reasons you'll love our Fermented Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance made up of sugar molecules that is naturally present in the body. Its main function is to keeps water inside cells, ensuring skin, eyes, cartilage and connective tissues remain lubricated and hydrated. It also plays a part in many other bodily functions such as wound repair, inflammation response and tissue regeneration.
In the world of skincare, hyaluronic acid is nowadays a staple ingredient renowned primarily for its ability to bind water to the skin. It also has other benefits such as aiding skin repair, self-renewal and self-defence itself. Overall, it helps skin staying strong, flexible and healthy. As we get older our levels of GA become depleted which is associated with drier, less elastic skin and overall skin ageing (2)
The Two types of Hyaluronic Acid
There are in fact two versions of this wonder ingredient - hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate. Since sodium hyaluronate is derived from hyaluronic acid, it is sometimes called hyaluronic acid and sometimes listed as sodium hyaluronate on skincare labels.
The difference between the two comes down to molecular weight. Hyaluronic acid has a higher molecular weight, which means it coats the skin forming a thin protective hydrating layer to prevent water loss. Sodium hyaluronate on the other hand can permeate the deeper dermal layers which means it not only hydrates at deeper levels but has wider skin plumping, revitalizing and health giving effects
Meet the FutureFerment™
Our hyaluronic acid FutureFerment™ is produced by bio-fermentation of wheat and corn starch using streptococcus bacteria in a clean natural-origin process.
The result is smaller sized molecules which are then put through a unique fractioning process then ensures a wide spectrum of ideal molecular weights
which mimic those found naturally in the body.
This delivers a supercharged version of hyaluronic acid with better skin absorption and wider and more potent benefits.
