Hyaluronic acid is bursting with benefits for the skin! It fights wrinkles, moisturizes and improves suppleness, giving skin a boost of youth. Learn about our organic skincare products with natural hyaluronic acid.
Why use an organic skincare product with hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the dermis and keeps skin hydrated and supple. However, over time, hyaluronic acid levels go down, and this gradually – and negatively – impacts on the condition of your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, in particular, start to form. So it makes perfect sense to use hyaluronic acid to keep your skin looking fresh and beautiful, and to slow down the effects of time! At Absolution, we offer organic formulas that are rich in natural hyaluronic acid. Learn all about them here...
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in high concentrations in the body, and particularly in skin tissues. It is found in the dermis – the middle layer of the skin, between the epidermis and hypodermis.
Hyaluronic acid is like an intercellular cement, and its role is to keep skin properly hydrated. It holds skin tissues together and, in doing so, helps the skin to retain moisture, so it stays smooth and elastic.
HYALURONIC ACID AND ITS BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN
Hyaluronic acid has excellent rehydrating and refreshing properties. By preventing dryness, it gives – or restores – radiance and elasticity to the skin, and improves the complexion. It helps skin to feel plumped and elastic, particularly in the eye area.
Regenerating and strengthening
Hyaluronic acid is essential for the growth and health of all the cells in the body, and skin cells in particular.
With time, skin cell renewal slows down, the skin becomes thinner and the complexion loses its glow. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful skin regenerator: it combats both premature aging and the signs of aging by promoting the growth of healthy stem cells and making cells more resilient. It helps to strengthen the skin, accelerate skin renewal and support skin healing.
Hyaluronic acid acts as a very powerful antioxidant and anti-ager for the body, working to keep skin smooth, supple, luminous and resilient. It helps to delay the appearance of wrinkles, smooth out existing ones, and protect the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural anti-inflammatory. It helps to keep skin clear and get it back on track when it goes off balance. In this way, it effectively fights acne, eczema and other skin problems.
Remineralizing and detoxifying
Finally, hyaluronic acid really refreshes the skin by helping to replenish minerals deep down, and through its overall hydrating effect. It fights toxins on the skin, and in doing so helps to restore vitality to old or damaged skin cells.
Any deficiency or absence of hyaluronic acid in the skin therefore has significant effects on its health, beauty and vitality.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SKIN WHEN HYALURONIC ACID LEVELS GO DOWN?
We're all born with a high amount of hyaluronic acid in our body, but around the age of 25, levels tend to decrease rapidly. As a result, cells are no longer held together as effectively as before.
This is, of course, a natural phenomenon, but it does have an impact on the condition of the skin.
- Fine lines and wrinkles appear, especially on the forehead, between the eyes (frown lines), around the outer corners of the eyes (crow's-feet), around the mouth and on the cheeks.
- The skin starts to sag.
- The skin becomes thinner and more sensitive to environmental stresses.
- The skin becomes dehydrated, leaving the complexion looking duller and lined.
Because hyaluronic acid levels drop severely as we get older, it's worth taking measures to combat the effects. By using organic skincare products enriched with natural hyaluronic acid, you can avoid a deficiency and help keep your skin plumped and beautiful!
THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC SKINCARE WITH HYALURONIC ACID
While young skin naturally has high levels of hyaluronic acid, after the age of 25, these levels start to drop – and keep on dropping! It's estimated that by the age of 50, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body has halved, compared with levels in infancy. To compensate for this deficiency, an organic skincare product enriched with hyaluronic acid is ideal. Creams rich in natural hyaluronic acid provide an extra dose of this precious ingredient, to help strengthen skin cells and enable them to function optimally.
Generally speaking, an organic skincare product rich in hyaluronic acid will:
- Deeply rehydrate the skin, notably by reinforcing the skin's intercellular barrier;
- Firm the skin: organic skincare formulas that contain a high level of hyaluronic acid release their active ingredients at the heart of the epidermis, to help strengthen skin cells;
- Restore suppleness and elasticity;
- Fill out or soften wrinkles on the face and neck, by restoring volume underneath wrinkles, and smoothing and plumping the skin;
- Prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and delay the effects of skin aging;
- Regenerate skin cells.
N.B.: Because the body naturally loses hyaluronic acid over time, it's essential that you provide it with hyaluronic acid regularly. When you apply an organic skincare product enriched with hyaluronic acid to your skin every day, it can soak up all its benefits – and you won't have to worry about a deficiency.
At Absolution, we've developed several organic formulas rich in hyaluronic acid to meet the needs of skin that's getting older or feeling stressed. These formulas focus on nourishing and maintaining elasticity in the skin of the face, neck and eye contour – areas that most often need extra care.
For your face:
Offering both preventive and corrective action, this complete anti-aging cream provides your skin with all the nutrients it needs to function optimally. It works to energize and regenerate your skin, regulate its metabolism, protect it, and keep it well-balanced every day. And because it leaves a matte finish, it also makes an excellent makeup base. Hyaluronic Acid is combined with Centella Asiatica, Neroli, Sesame oil and Aloe Vera to give it a light texture that's a pleasure to apply!
With its antioxidant, restructuring and de-stressing action, La Crème du Soir gives your skin what it needs to feel young again.

While you sleep, it delivers its smoothing and anti-aging benefits, to leave your skin looking smoothed out when you wake up. Rich in Aloe Vera and Magnesium, as well as Evening Primrose, Jojoba and Argan oils, it soothes your skin after a long, hard day. Tip: you can even apply La Crème du Soir to the eye area without making your eyes puffy!

The formula contains Ginseng, which helps to protect and invigorate the skin, and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. Even men who've "never used a cream before" have every good reason to make it part of their skincare regimen!
Finally, don't forget the fragile skin around your eyes, which can also benefit from organic skincare products enriched with hyaluronic acid.

GENERAL TIPS AND ADVICE
If you want your skin to look plumped and youthful for longer, there are little things you can do every day!
- If you smoke, consider stopping or at least cutting down.
- Avoid spending too much time in the sun, especially between noon and 4 pm. And even if you live somewhere where there isn't much sunshine, remember to wear sunscreen to prevent sun spots from forming. La Crème du Teint, our makeup-and-skincare cream, contains Thermus Thermophilus, which gives it a natural SPF of 10-15.
- Make sure you get enough hydration: between 1.5 and 2 liters a day (water, herbal teas, detox water, etc.).
- Sleep! A repairing sleep is essential if you want to maintain skin elasticity and hydration – and don't forget that skin cell renewal peaks at night.
- Fill your diet with vitamins (A, B, C and E), antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
