The magic behind our new Hydra+ Marine Cream is Hyaluronic acid (HA). Along with Hebridean seaweed extract, our formula delivers powerful hydration and nourishment through two molecular weights of HA to target different skin layers.
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance your body produces naturally and has a lightweight texture. HA can bind up to 1000x times its own weight in water, making it extremely moisturising, and an essential component in keeping joints lubricated and skin hydrated.
How does Hyaluronic acid benefit the skin?
HA allows nutrients to reach deeper levels of the skin by maintaining extra cellular space.
Enviromental pollution can decrease the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin, causing fine lines, reduced elasticity, wrinkles and dark spots. By including hyaluronic acid in your skincare routine, this can replenish the levels resulting in improved skin texture and appearance.
By using two different molecular weights, HA penetrates multiple layers delivering deep hydration and protection to lock in moisture.
Why are two molecular weights used in the Hydra+ Marine Cream?
- Low molecular weightspenetrate the skin to deliver nourishing and regenerative qualities to the deeper layers. This weight of HA has been found to strengthen skin thickness and structure, support cell renewal and stimulate the production of collagen. The HA ishga uses in the new Hydra+ Marine Cream was found to deliver a 52% reduction in wrinkles over a 6 week time period*.
- High molecular weights form a hydration barrier on the surface of the skin delivering instant visible results, improving skin texture and hydration levels whilst protecting against harmful pollutants in the environment. This molecular weight of HA was found to also decrease sebum production, offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and boast a 41% increase in immediate hydration*.
