Hyaluronic Moisture Gel, 30 mL
A unique hyaluronic acid-based, oil-free gel designed to enhance skin moisture and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Can be applied under make-up, sunscreen or moisturizer and is appropriate for all skin types. Also useful as a light moisturizer for oily skin.
- Enhances skin moisture and helps to plump and firm
- Reduces TEWL (trans epidermal water loss)
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Can be used prior to application of cream or lotion to lock in moisture
HYALURONIC ACID (SODIUM HYALURONATE)
A hydrophilic molecule, Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, reduces TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss), and helps to keep skin plump and firm. Sodium Hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan found in the extracellular space that resists compression by absorbing significant amounts of water.
PALIMITOYL OLIGOPEPTIDE & PALIMITOYL TETRAPEPTIDE-7 (MATRIXYL 3000)
Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by enhancing collagen and hyaluronic acid production.
This peptide has been shown to stimulate the production of a protein called fibronectin, which among other things helps attach the epidermis to the dermis. The more fibronectin, the firmer, more youthful the skin becomes.
NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3)
Promotes microcirculation, strengthens the skin’s outer layers, improves elasticity, and curbs redness and irritation. Helpful for treating dry skin due to its ability to increase barrier lipid levels. Has anti-inflammatory properties (which helps reduce redness), anti-bacterial properties, and melanin inhibiting properties.
PANTHENOL (VITAMIN B5)
Enables the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids, increasing cellular integrity and efficiency. Acts as a moisturizer with humectant properties.
Also known as mucopolysaccharides, this group of complex proteins is a fundamental component of skin tissue. Chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid are part of this ingredient group, both of which function as skin-identical or skin-repairing ingredients.
SODIUM CHONDROITIN SULFATE
A derivative of a natural mucopolysaccharide, this ingredient is used as a skin conditioning agent due to its ability to moisturize, heal, and soothe skin by means of anti-inflammatory properties. It is capable of reinforcing the skin’s intercellular matrix and, along with other mucopolysaccharides, is thought to be responsible for the elasticity, resilience and strength of the skin.
