What is Sodium Hyaluronate?

Sodium Hyaluronate (or hyaluronic acid) is an acid that naturally occurs in skin. As a skin care ingredient, this is the ultimate moisturizer, which is why you’ll find it in so many creams and serums.

 

Benefits of Sodium Hyaluronate

  1. The Sodium Hyaluronate molecule holds 1,000 times its weight in water. That’s why it is such an effective moisturizer: When applied to skin, it helps skin retain and replenish its natural moisture.
  2. This acid is a skin revitalizer. With regular use, you’ll notice a smoother, softer feel.
  3. If you’re fighting dry skin, sodium hyaluronate is the best way to add water back to the skin. Use it to correct flakiness and irritation.
  4. Sodium Hyaluronate is a wrinkle reducer. It accomplishes this feat through hydration—more moisture means firmer, plumper skin, which makes wrinkles less visible.
  5. This ingredient promotes better blood circulation and nutrient absorption. Use it in conjunction with a nutrient-rich moisturizer or serum to maximize the benefits of the product’s other ingredients.
  6. Sodium Hyaluronate helps with wound healing, so if you have acne, this ingredient will help prevent scarring.
