What is Hyaluronic Acid and its functions
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in our body, as a fundamental component of connective tissues. On the skin, its presence guarantees elasticity, softness, brightness and hydration to the skin of the face and body, and protects it from damage caused by external factors and physical stress. With increasing age, the endogenous production of hyaluronic acid decreases, increasingly after the age of 40, and this leads to the loss of capacity to retain water, the progressive weakening of the skin and the consequent appearance of imperfections and gradually deeper wrinkles.
From a chemical point of view, the reticular structure of hyaluronic acid is such as to make it capable of retaining large amounts of water, up to 1000 times its own weight, and providing hydration to the tissues of the human body; acts as a cushion capable of retaining moisture, allowing the skin to remain more elastic, toned, turgid and therefore younger . It also acts as a barrier against the penetration of viruses and bacteria and helps to soothe irritation and redness.
Use of Hyaluronic Acid in LOVVES cosmetics
The particular qualities of hyaluronic acid make it widely used in our anti-aging treatments, in fact, together with the other natural active ingredients, it is present as a characterizing element of the entire LOVVES cosmetic line. Furthermore, having no contraindications and side effects guarantees safe use even for those suffering from sensitive skin.
The long research conducted by LOVVES in the dermocosmetic field has led to the wise use of hyaluronic acid for the creation of a line of effective anti-wrinkle products . Whether it is expression lines or more marked wrinkles, we have created treatments able to respond to the different needs of the skin. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes a significant weakening of the skin, favoring its aging. For this reason it is important to integrate the physiological production of this substance with specific cosmetic products.
High molecular weight and 3 molecular weight hyaluronic acid is used in our formulations . Let's try to explain below what the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid means in a cosmetic product according to age. Quite simply, the smaller the hyaluronic acid molecule, and the lower its molecular weight, the more easily it will be able to penetrate deeply into the skin and get to plump the lattice, therefore:
Low molecular weight : reaches the subcutaneous layers, stimulating the production of collagen, the protein responsible for tissue density and compactness. The effect is the filling and smoothing of wrinkles.
Medium molecular weight : penetrates through the skin and supplies the necessary water to ensure firmness and skin turgor.
High molecular weight : forms an invisible film on the skin surface capable of blocking the evaporation of water and thus counteracting dehydration.
For a plumping effect there is therefore a need for a cosmetic in which the molecule has a low molecular weight, otherwise it risks remaining on the surface and not being able to support the skin where it is most needed. This does not mean that high molecular weight hyaluronic acid-based products are useless, far from it; but that the hydration due to hyaluronic acid will affect only the epidermis, thus preventing the water present on the surface from evaporating.
So molecular weight and age: which hyaluronic acid is better to choose?
A more mature skin needs products based on low molecular weight hyaluronic acid as it needs to increase the presence of this molecule in the subcutaneous layer. Conversely, a younger skin can benefit from superficial skin hydration given by the high molecular weight, which thus prevents the water present on the surface from evaporating while preserving the elasticity of the skin .
Thanks to the presence of hyaluronic acid, LOVVES High Natural Cosmetics products offer a safe and effective answer to those who want to prevent and combat the signs left by time on the skin of the face. Discover all the solutions suited to your needs and find skin that is hydrated, compact, radiant and younger looking in a few weeks.
