Hyaluronic Acid: Anti-Aging, Anti-Scarring, Pro Skin Health

“Think of it as a sponge for your skin, drawing water to the surface and holding it there to increase hydration.”

Hyaluronic acid, a key ingredient in many skincare products, is a naturally occurring acid with some remarkable properties. One of its standout features is its ability to hold up to 1000x its weight in water per molecule. Think of it as a sponge for your skin, drawing water to the surface and holding it there to increase hydration. When we are young, our skin is teeming with hyaluronic acid, but as the years pass our natural hyaluronic acid levels begin to decline. As hydration levels drop, signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin become more apparent.

When your skin is at its healthiest with peak hydration levels, it is able to do some amazing things. With the promotion of cellular turnover and collagen production, hyaluronic acid can help fade scars and even out skin tone. It has been shown to improve the appearance of mild scarring, whether from acne, injuries, or other sources.

Hyaluronic acid is an excellent hydrator for the skin’s moisture barrier, but for deeper hydration you should opt for sodium hyaluronate, a salt derived from hyaluronic acid with a smaller molecular size that can penetrate further into the skin. Sodium hyaluronate is also a great option for those with sensitive skin as its smaller molecular size can be less irritating. It can sometimes be a better option for acne-prone skin as it is less likely to clog pores and cause acne.

Adding hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate into your home skincare routine is easy! Corthe’s Dermo Rejuvenation line uses these ingredients in several products to support the revitalization of the skin’s moisture barrier. The Corthe Dermo Rejuvenation Re Gel is like Aquaphor with additional nourishing ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans, and centella asiatica extract (CICA). The Corthe Dermo Rejuvenation Revolution Ampoule combines the power of hyaluronic acid with ingredients like Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) and ceramide NP.
