Our body produces its own moisturizer in the form of hyaluronic acid. This long chain of sugar molecules helps moisturize skin, joints, and eyes. However, moisture tends to decrease as we age, so many people take hyaluronic acid supplements.

Hyaluronic acid is a hot topic in the world of skincare. If you’re interested in selling hyaluronic acid, Soft Gel Technologies, Inc. offers a branded supplement called Injuv, and it’s available to you for sale to your customers.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?

Hyaluronic acid (also known as HA) is a glycosaminoglycan that occurs naturally in the body. The average person has around 10 to 20 grams of it in their body. What does hyaluronic acid do for your skin? It helps with regeneration, healing, cell metabolism, skin elasticity, and tone. It’s a highly popular ingredient in skincare products such as moisturizing creams and lotions. 

Hyaluronic acid works well for all skin types and can typically be used as often as twice a day. However, each formula is different, so be sure to read the directions before use. 

Healthier Skin with HA

What is hyaluronic acid good for? A key benefit is healthier skin. Hyaluronic acid is especially helpful for those with dry skin since it serves as an effective moisturizer. It’s also known to plump up the skin and make it look more youthful. Because of this, hyaluronic acid is often used in dermal fillers. 

Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it can aid in wound repair. Hyaluronic acid also contains antioxidants to help wounds heal more quickly.

Hyaluronic acid can also brighten skin and sometimes reduces signs of hyperpigmentation and other skin damage. 

Fewer Wrinkles with HA

While topical forms of hyaluronic acid don’t prevent wrinkles, they help increase moisture in the skin. They also increase firmness and elasticity, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

When HA is ingested, it can help ward off the effects of aging. Hyaluronic acid also helps boost collagen in the skin, which means it may have long-term anti-aging benefits.

Possible Side Effects

Our body makes hyaluronic acid naturally, so there are not many side effects. However, there are some things to keep in mind before you use it.

Hyaluronic acid is typically safe when applied properly. Because of how it draws water to the surface of the skin, hyaluronic acid can make dry skin dryer, so be sure to apply it to slightly damp skin, then lock it in with a rich moisturizer. A layer of face oil will maximize the hydration.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult with your doctor prior to use.
