Wirkstoffe im Spotlight: Hyaluronsäure

Active ingredients in the spotlight: hyaluronic acid

You come across your name more and more often on cosmetic products, especially in the anti-aging sector. But what exactly is hyaluronic acid and what effect does it have on our skin?

Natural part of our body

We all already have hyaluronic acid in us - it is a natural part of our body. They can be found, for example, in cartilage and synovial fluid or in our skin. Science has now succeeded in producing the substance artificially and supplying it to the body from the outside in the form of creams, gels or serums. If you are now perhaps wondering why we should apply something to our skin that we already have in us, this question is definitely justified. The fact is that our body slows down the production of the active ingredient as we get older. From around the age of 25 we produce less and less of the substance. Hyaluronic acid gives our skin tone and elasticity and helps it to bind moisture. If we have less of the acid in us, our skin loses moisture and the first wrinkles form. This is also the reason why the active ingredient is increasingly found in anti-aging products.

Hyaluronic acid in cosmetics

Since hyaluronic acid is a product produced by the body, it is generally well tolerated and is therefore often used in cosmetic products. It is contained in high concentrations in many creams and serums and has an instant plumping and smoothing effect and is therefore a popular ingredient in anti-aging products. Due to its moisturizing effect, the active ingredient is also generally very suitable for dry skin or for moisturizing in general.
