Hyaluronic Acid – The Fountain Of Youth


Hyaluronic acid has become an essential part of many people’s skincare routine. The active ingredient is used chiefly in creams, masks, body lotions and many other skincare products. One gram of hyaluronic acid can store up to 10 l of water, which is why it is so moisturizing. Aesthetic medicine can’t be imagined without hyaluronic acid, a miracle ingredient that can even be injected under the skin as a ‘filler’.



What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-like compound that our bodies can produce autonomously.

It contributes to the smooth mechanics and stability of our joints, keeps eyes moist and skin smooth and elastic. Yet, its production in the body decreases in one’s 20s and is only half as high around the age of 50.

This entails that your skin is not as plump and form as it used to be, wrinkles get deeper and the general aging process of the skin is accelerated. By applying hyaluronic acid frequently, you can counter the emerging issue.


Does size really matter?

When it comes to hyaluronic acid the answer is a clear ‘yes’! There are three different types of hyaluronic acid. They all differ in terms of their size and effectivity.

1. High-molecular hyaluronic acid
This is the type of hyaluronic acid with the largest molecules, which only penetrates the top layers of the skin and thus only provides short term results.

2. Low-molecular hyaluronic acid
Due to the lsmaller size of its molecular mass, this hyaluronic acid reaches the middle layer of the skin. Its results last longer.

3. Oligo hyaluronic acid
The oligo hyaluronic acid consists of microscopically small molecules that penetrate even lowest skin layers. With regular use it guarantees long-lasting results by plumping up your skin from within.

As you can see: The smaller the molecules, the more effective the hyaluronic acid.

Many brands advertise their use of hyaluronic acid in their products, yet they mostly use less effective forms of the cosmetic agent.

At 48grams, we only use oligo hyaluronic acid and thus the most precious and effective hyaluronic acid there is. Thanks to this luxurious agent, our hyaluronic acid organic membrane mask is your best bet when it comes to anti-aging products!

Application
In case you are using your hyaluronic acid as a serum, you need to make sure your skin is still wet after washing it, in order for the molecules to retain moisture and transfer it to the skin cells.

Furthermore, you should apply a fat-based cream after using a hyaluronic serum or our hyaluronic acid organic membrane mask to lock the moisture in your skin.

In case you still haven’t made this liquid gold a part of your skin care routine, then you should definitely start now!

Even after the first use you will notice how your skin absorbs the youth elixir and how your complexion will look much more vital and fresh.

By regularly applying oligo hyaluronic acid, the moisture content of your skin will improve, whilst wrinkles will be reduced.
