What is hyaluronic acid? How does it prevent skin aging? Discover the power of this active property that is naturally present in the skin.

Hyaluronic acid FAQ

Active against factors that mark the face, such as fatigue and time, hyaluronic acid is the winner in this race against the clock. Its advantages are the fact that it’s an excellent moisturizer, and that it naturally plumps the skin. Here’s the proof.

Hyaluronic acid: an ingredient that is already present in the skin?


Yes – hyaluronic acid is what gives skin its moist quality, even being one of the main components of the skin. In fact, the extracellular spaces of the living epidermis are rich in hyaluronic acid. This property’s presence is therefore essential in order to keep your skin hydrated and maintain the cutaneous tissue.

Hyaluronic acid: capable of holding up to 1000 its weight in water?


Put simply, hyaluronic acid is rather similar to a sponge. Thanks to its ability to retain water (up to 1000 times its weight), hyaluronic acid is able to draw water from the dermis (the tissue that with the epidermis, forms the skin) and to protect it. In its natural state, hyaluronic acid forms an aqueous gel in the presence of water. It restricts the movement and the evaporation of this water and therefore ensures great hydration.

Hyaluronic acid: sourced from a plant sugar to enrich your skincare creams


With age and the effects of skin influencers, the hyaluronic acid naturally present in the skin decreases and its quality deteriorates. Result: the appearance of wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity as a whole. This process accelerates after the age of 40.

The ideal way to counter the ravages of time: skincare products enriched with fragmented hyaluronic acid, obtained via a pure and controlled refinement method.

Hyaluronic acid: the essential skin property for hydration and filling in wrinkles


Its low molecular weight allows it to penetrate more easily into the skin without causing any swelling in reaction. In your facial care regime, fragmented hyaluronic acid helps to improve skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles. A real asset for thirty-somethings, to prevent the arrival of fine lines – or to help them fade later on, resulting in skin that looks more youthful. No wonder it is the top property from an anti-aging perspective, and that it’s also now being incorporated into body care.

    Introducing the collagen diet.

    Yes, you can eat your way to boost this vital skin protein.    
    Collagen, the essential skin protein. The invisible support structure keeping skin firm, plump and young from the inside-out and the outside-in. The protein whose decline is regulated like a timer.  Every year, from our late twenties, skin will lose it at a rate of 1%* (1) since its production slows down. But this happens even faster if we over-eat foods that accelerate this natural 1% decline.  To find out how much the foods that pass our lips impact the collagen in our skin, read on.

    Collagen: everything you need to know.

    What you’ve heard is true, your skin depends on it. Do you remember being totally unaware that collagen matters in skin? Possibly when you were 20 years old and your collagen production was so high, 75% (1) higher than it will be with age, you didn’t need to think twice about it. You heard the word collagen mentioned vaguely, you knew it was a protein, you knew it was somehow related to your skin’s structure.
