Hyaluronic Acid – Why Is it Essential For Skin?

The research into the properties of Hyaluronan or Hyaluronic Acid are so numerous that Wikipedia alone lists 82 reference documents to support its article. It is considered an essential ingredient in good skin care and anti-aging products with good reason. Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid plays a part in wound care and scar prevention and it is even considered a part of diabetic wound therapy.

What makes it so very important for skin and wound healing? The key thing to understand is that your body needs and uses Hyaluronic Acid daily whether or not you use any products containing it. Your body requires it for skin connectivity and renewal and for healthy joints and other connective tissue. One third of all your body’s store of Hyaluronan is “turned over” every day as your body renews cells damaged by age or external factors.

As a key component in connective tissue, Hyaluronic Acid is part of what keeps your skin supple, smooth, and not drooping or wrinkled. Preparations containing Hyaluronic Acid are smoothed onto skin and absorbed readily into the cellular layers boosting their ability to repair themselves and maintain an attractive level of hydration.

If so many skin care preparations contain Hyaluronic Acid, does it matter which one to use? The simple answer is yes, and this is why. Hyaluronic Acid is one ingredient in skin care but it may be a tiny fraction of the over all lotion you are using. There may be fillers, fragrances, preservatives, coloring agents and many other ingredients listed on the label. You want to buy an anti-aging cream that has a short ingredient list and a better percentage of active ingredients. You also do not want your skin care products to contain parabens, phthalates, fragrance, triclosans, or formaldehyde forming agents. Those can be potentially harmful and even contribute to aging.
