2021 Skincare Trend Alert: Hyaluronic Acid | Skin Actives

2021 Skincare Trend Alert: Hyaluronic Acid | Skin Actives

Posted by Dr. Hannah Sivak and Brendan Leonard on Jan 26th 2021

Hyaluronic Acid has been with us as a supplement for a long time. We should know, we’ve been promoting its use now for well over a decade.

It used to be that you only saw it available in the health and wellness center of your natural foods grocery store, and it was probably in an unflattering bottle at that!

But how the times do change! Not only has hyaluronic acid found its way onto the front of those super-cute boutique brands, but it’s also everywhere you look in the drugstore and big box store brands as well.

Once again, this is an overall good thing, and Skin Actives had to have played a role, no matter how small, in getting the word out about hyaluronic acid. But we still maintain, don’t buy any active for label value, buy it because it works. At Skin Actives Scientific, our commitment to your skin health remains our number one priority. That’s why when you buy a hyaluronic acid product from us, you can be sure that it has as much HA as your body can effectively use, without waste.

But what does hyaluronic acid do? Why is it so desirable?

Hyaluronic Acid is Potent Hydration

Hydration is the name of the game, this is what it all comes down to with hyaluronic acid. Now, at Skin Actives, we believe in putting the science first. So, there are a lot of claims that people want to make about hyaluronic acid, but right now the research doesn’t necessarily bear them out. 

What hyaluronic acid is best at is winning in the hydration game. You see, as molecules go, hyaluronic acid is actually pretty huge. It is able to capture and hold up to 1000 times its volume in water. Keep this in mind:  hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring part of the skin, with an average person containing about 15 grams of this active inside their body. Meanwhile, it turns over very quickly, up to one-third of the total amount per day. This alone means that you want to stay on top of your hyaluronic acid production to lock in needed moisture.

Additionally, hyaluronic serves a vital role in free-radical scavenging. As we know, free radicals in our environment are what is aging our bodies physically. So it’s really necessary to find a mechanism to purge those unwanted oxidants from our skin. Hyaluronic acid is prized in the skincare and beauty industries at all levels for its ability to fight the appearance of wrinkles.
