Used in a multitude of cosmetic products, Hyaluronic Acid is definitely a star beauty ingredient! And when you consider all its benefits for the skin, this really isn't surprising... Find out more about Absolution's certified-organic skincare products formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, so you can choose the one that's best for you and your skin!
What's so special about Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is essential for healthy skin. It occurs naturally in the dermis and epidermis, and keeps skin hydrated by retaining water in cells (thanks to its hygroscopic properties), plus it makes the skin more supple by maintaining the viscosity of synovial fluid – a fluid found in most joints. You can also find Hyaluronic Acid in the eyes, nervous tissues, cartilage, and the walls of blood vessels.
However, over time, natural levels of Hyaluronic Acid in the body diminish – and this gradually negatively impacts the condition of the skin. As it becomes less hydrated and duller, lines and folds start developing. In fact, it's estimated that by the age of 50, the body has lost almost half of the Hyaluronic Acid it had at birth!
So, what's the solution? Start by using a certified-organic face cream that's enriched with Hyaluronic Acid! By offering various benefits and regenerating action, it will help fighting premature aging and the signs of aging, while keeping skin supplied with what it lacks every day. Immediately after applying it, skin feels stronger, thicker, and better able to cope with daily aggressors.
At Absolution, we've chosen to incorporate naturally derived Hyaluronic Acid into several of our formulas. It may not promise miracles, but it does promise complete action on the skin. We've used it in its three different forms (high, medium and low molecular weight) to hydrate, smooth, and maintain cellular cohesion of your skin.
The benefits of organic skincare with Hyaluronic Acid
A precious skin hydrator
Hyaluronic Acid boasts exceptional hydrating properties: a single gram of this powerful ingredient can trap and hold almost one liter of water! This is mostly due to the fact that its molecules swell like sponges, which enables it to maintain the skin's natural moisture levels and create volume in the dermis.
This intense hydrating action is provided by La Crème du Jour and La Crème de l’Homme. Perfect for everyday use, these day creams work to protect, energize and regenerate the skin. La Crème du Jour ensures your skin can cope with your non-stop, hectic days! It provides complete care, protects the skin, and helps keep it balanced. In this formula, Hyaluronic Acid is combined with Centella Asiatica (firming), Aloe Vera (calming), Calcium (to strengthen epidermal cohesion and improve cell renewal), Neroli and Sesame (soothing) and Green Tea (antioxidant).
As for La Crème de l'Homme, it meets all the specific needs of men's skin. It hydrates, mattifies, calms (ideal for all those prone to razor burn), protects, repairs, invigorates and smoothes! And this is all thanks to a clever blend of botanical ingredients, combined with Hyaluronic Acid. Among them, you'll find Baobab and Hemp Seed oils to fight free radicals. There's also Jojoba oil (a multi-talented ingredient!) to calm the skin, improve suppleness and protect against dehydration, and Ginseng to invigorate and firm. It's the ideal combination for all those men who "never thought about applying moisturizer before"!
An essential ingredient to give structure and strength to the skin
Hyaluronic Acid also plays an important role in helping cells in the body to grow well and be healthy – and particularly skin cells. So, when cell renewal is slower, Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin to regenerate better and be stronger, giving it a smoother, plumped appearance. Its antioxidant properties help to combat the formation of free radicals. These unstable molecules are naturally produced due to stress, smoking or sun exposure – all of which damage skin cells.
La Crème du Soir boasts antioxidant, restructuring and de-stressing properties, and gives your skin all it needs to help it function like young skin again. Its formula combines Hyaluronic Acid with Aloe Vera, Magnesium (relaxing), Evening Primrose oil (helps to slow down the effects of skin aging) and Jojoba and Argan oils – two essential active ingredients that work to nourish the skin without leaving a greasy residue. By delivering more nutrients to cells, they can help to slow down cellular aging.
An important active ingredient to fight the signs of aging
Fibroblasts are the skin cells that synthesize Hyaluronic Acid. As we age, fibroblast renewal becomes less efficient, which means there are fewer fibroblasts in the dermis. Consequently, the dermis loses density and elasticity. The skin starts to sag and lines appear, particularly in the eye area. This is the most sensitive part of your face: the skin here is three to five times thinner, so it needs extra-gentle, targeted skincare.
To compensate for the natural loss of density in the eye area and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, we recommend using Le Soin Regard. This eye cream is enriched with high, medium and low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, to provide hydrating, protective, tightening and plumping benefits. It works to prevent the appearance of dark circles and under-eye bags while keeping the eye area hydrated, and contains Caffeine, for an instant revitalizing and de-puffing effect – even on the most tired eyes. Acerola, rich in Vitamin C, has an immediate reviving effect, while Green Coffee helps to prevent under-eye puffiness. Calendula calms, Helichrysum hydrosol helps to boost circulation, Blue Lotus works to prevent the slowdown of collagen production, and Tourmaline fights dark circles.
Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent ingredient to restore skin's elasticity, especially around the eyes. It's one of the ingredients in La Crème Réparatrice Regard, which works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth out the skin, and restructure and nourish the delicate eye area. This cream also contains Acmella (a plant with muscle-relaxing properties), Roman Chamomile (to soothe and de-stress), Mamaku (with healing and regenerating benefits), Neroli hydrosol (calming) and more than eight firming, soothing and repairing active ingredients.
On a daily basis...
Finally, it's worth pointing out that good lifestyle habits can also help to limit the decline in natural Hyaluronic Acid levels. To stack the odds in your favor, cut down on or stop smoking (which also dulls the complexion) and avoid overexposure to the sun – plus, make sure you always use a high SPF to protect your skin! Last but not least, get a good night's sleep – as nighttime is the best time for cell renewal.
If you like to wear makeup, you could also use makeup products enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, such as La Poudre Christophe Danchaud. This ultra-fine face powder not only reduces the appearance of dilated pores and fine lines; it cares for your skin too.
