What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a plant derived gel that re-hydrates the skin. Also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronon or HA. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight which is why it plumps the skin so well. Hyaluronic acid is known as the king of the hydrators. It is found naturally in the body in the skin, cartilage, eyes, lips and joints. In the case of joints, hyaluronic acid provides the cushioning and lubricant required for flexibility.
What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
Babies are born with large amounts of hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen and elastin in their skin. As we age the amounts of all these decrease. When
the correct HA is used in serums or creams, in sufficient quantities, we can go a long way towards restoring our own hyaluronic acid.
A company that uses pharmaceutical grade will provide the best quality hyaluronic acid. MiSMo not only uses pharmaceutical grade, but huge amounts. Most companies use cosmetic grade in small quantities. The reason is simple - hyaluronic acid is very expensive.
HA is amazingly fast - within a day or so you will see the plumping of your skin as long as the serum or cream contains a high amount of best quality hyaluronic acid.
Serums can be used twice a day. Mature skins will benefits from twice a day where once a day will suffice for younger skins
MiSMo has creams, lotions and gels containing hyaluronic acid. The creams are Anti Wrinkle Cream, New Age Moisturiser and New Age Moisturiser with sunscreen. Lotions are Boost (an oil free moisturiser)and Blemish Gel; and Rejuvenating Gel - our premium anti ageing serum.
