Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring biopolymer, it is a highly effective humectant i.e. an ingredient that holds moisture. HA can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water which helps keep the skin smooth and plump. The content of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases with age, which may contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
HA also supports the formation and maintenance of collagen, an important connective tissue. Collagen degradation is believed to cause a decrease in skin tone and elasticity.
