Why are there so many different Hyaluronic Acids in the Hydrating and Healing Serum?

Each hyaluronic acid holds a whole heap of moisture into the skin, as we very well know, but they also individually have different properties which help in different ways.

Including multiple hyaluronic acids provides diverse molecular weights for multi-layered hydration, promoting optimal skin moisture retention and plumpness.

What do these multiple Hyaluronic Acids do:

  • Zinc Hyaluronate - to promote healing.
  • HyaloRepair - a patented HA to target skin barrier function recovery, increase water content of the skin barrier, and reduce TEWL.
  • Hyaloveil - has the opposite charge of the skin’s surface and therefore adheres to the skin via ionic bond. It also demonstrates 9 times more hydration compared to common HA, even after washing.
  • Hyal-Oligo - penetrates beyond the skin barrier to provide long lasting moisture retention.
  • HA Booster - penetrates the epidermis delivering hydration to deeper levels and signalling fibroblast (elastin) and collagen production, increasing the skin’s firmness.

How to use the Hydrating & Healing Serum

The Hydrating & Healing Serum fits easily into any routine. Apply 1 pump after cleansing and allow it to absorb before applying your moisture cream or face oil. 

Use it before any retinols or high actives to serve as a ‘buffer’ between the actives and your skin. This still allows the actives to work effectively but the added layer of hydration helps soothe the skin.

Apply after needling to peels to help speed up the healing process, it also helps calm and soothe the skin, relieving any irritation.
