What is Hyaluronic Acid and why should you use it

Cosmetic ingredients -

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the human body but its production decreases as we age, as does collagen, causing our skin to age. This acid is fundamental to have a hydrated, healthy and soft skin and it is one of the star ingredients in the aesthetic treatments. Do you want to know more about it? Keep reading this blog!

What is hyaluronic acid for?

Hyaluronic acid is an anti-wrinkle and anti-aging ingredient that stimulates collagen synthesis and helps reduce wrinkles. It is an active ingredient widely used in the cosmetic industry and aesthetic medicine and is used to combat dehydration and skin aging. In medicine it is used quite frequently in plastic surgery for wrinkle filling treatment or intra-articular injections.

We also want to reassure you in case you think that containing the word “acid” will burn or irritate your skin because it is not. On the contrary, this acid will moisturise and provide a more youthful and healthy appearance to your skin.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid moisturises the skin and retains moisture, ensures permanent skin hydration and facilitates water retention in the skin layers (epidermis and dermis).

This acid has a tensor effect on the deep layers of the skin, fills in wrinkles and furrows or expression lines and improves the skin’s regeneration process. It also leaves the skin with a smoother appearance and a very soft touch.

Hyaluronic acid firms the skin, helps restore and maintain skin firmness that is lost over the years and has very good assimilation as our own body creates this substance.


Is hyaluronic acid vegan?

Hyaluronic acid as well as other compounds such as lactic acid can be vegan or not. At Mediterranean Spirit we use hyaluronic acid of biotechnological vegetable origin which is obtained by biotechnological procedures from wheat and yeast by fermentation.

Where can we find hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is used as a component of skin creams, in food supplements and injections. In topical use (serum or cream) it is ideal for maintaining levels of firmness, softness, skin hydration and volume.

At Mediterranean Spirit we use vegan hyaluronic acid in our eye cream and also combine it with retinol.

In the INCI (ingredients) of our products you will find it under the name of Sodium Hyaluronate. As mentioned above, hyaluronic acid will increase the level of hydration in your skin and will provide firmness and elasticity.

If you include it in your skin care routine, you will notice an increase in the skin’s elasticity and you will delay the effects of aging. What are you waiting for? It will be your great ally to show off young and luminous skin!
