Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that can bind up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This formula focuses on ultra-moisturizing high-molecular-weight versions for ample surface hydration as well as on medium-molecular weight versions whose strong point is to strengthen the skin barrier and to reinforce the skin’s natural defense & healing mechanisms.

Ingredients & Research
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer – A new generation, cross-linked hyaluronic acid whose water binding ability is several times greater than the already amazing water-binding ability of hyaluronic acid. Also offers longer-term moisturization benefits.
Sodium Hyaluronate -The most common, salt-form of hyaluronic acid that can be found in large and medium molecular weight in the formula.
Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract – The extract of silver ear mushroom known for its amazing water-binding abilities. It contains sugar constituents including Glucuronic acid, one of the building blocks of Hyaluronic Acid. It is cosmetically very elegant, non-sticky and has additional antioxidant benefits.
Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid – A smaller molecular weight version of Hyaluronic Acid that is known for its ability to reinforce the skin’s natural defense & healing mechanisms.
Panthenol – A classic skincare ingredient that is a reliable soothing, moisturizing and skin-protecting agent.
