Not All Hyaluronic Acids Are Created Equal

Selecting the Correct Product for You
It’s likely we have all read many articles on
Hyaluronic Acid and most of them use the word “humectant”; what does this word mean? Merriam Webster defines a humectant as, “a substance that promotes retention of moisture.” Hyaluronic Acid is a water-loving molecule that is naturally found in every tissue of your body. It acts like a sponge attracting and retaining 1,000 times its weight in water. This humectant performs as an essential hydrating reservoir within the tissues; naturally filling and plumping up your skin from within.
50% of Hyaluronic Acid existing in the body is located in the skin. Like Elastin and Collagen, your body’s Hyaluronic Acid concentration starts declining with age. This contributes to dehydration, dull appearance, and the accelerated onset of lines and wrinkles.
The replenishment of this naturally occurring compound is important for your skin’s health and appearance. For this reason, Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most popular and in-demand ingredients in skin care today! But beware, not all Hyaluronic Acid products are created equal.
When you are selecting the Hyaluronic Acid skincare product that is right for you and your skin there are three categories that you need to explore: Molecular Structure, Absorbency, Potency, and Additional Active Ingredients.
Let’s take a look at these three things to consider:
Molecular Structure & Absorbency
There are lots of options on the market today for products containing Hyaluronic Acid. However, be careful when making your selection. Standard Hyaluronic Acid products contain normal large-sized molecules. This means that the molecules within the formula are too large and do not allow the product to penetrate deeply. This reduces the benefits your skin will receive. In other words, you will be wasting both your time and money.
When choosing the perfect product for your skincare routine you always want to select one that uses micronized Hyaluronic Acid, like Pevonia® Hyaluronic Acid Hydra-Serum. What does this mean? When an element or compound has been micronized, it has been broken into very fine particles. In this case, Hyaluronic Acid is broken down in order to allow the product to penetrate deeper for optimum results.
Ingredient potency is something you should always consider when selecting your ideal products. Not only to make sure that you are getting the best value for your money, but to ensure that you are getting the best product for your skin. Celebrities like
Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, and others are raving about this powerhouse ingredient. Most skincare products with Hyaluronic Acid contain low percentages starting at around 1.5%. By comparison, professional-strength Power Repair® Hyaluronic Acid Hydra-Serum by Pevonia® uses 10% Hyaluronic Acid, one of the highest concentrations on the market.
So always check your labels! Yes, the Hyaluronic Acid products available on the market advertise “Hyaluronic Acid” nice and large on the front of the package, but flip that box around and see where that ingredient is listed… the lower down, the less potency it actually has. Boost results by empowering your skincare ritual with products that will deliver professional and dramatic results.
Additional Active Ingredients
Who doesn’t like a product with multi-benefits? If you are taking the time and energy to put a product on your skin – you want more than one result! We love taking care of our skin but are always looking for ways to maximize results and minimize our time!
So, what it is in our Hyaluronic Acid Hydra-Serum?
