(1/3) 👋 We have (too) many Hyaluronic Acid (HA) options across our brands and this post will highlight the differences that make each product unique. Hyaluronic Acid is most loved for its incredible water retention properties. In general, the most common form of HA incorporated in skin care products is too large of a molecule to penetrate the skin. Instead, it sits on the surface and can draw moisture out of the skin, making the surface feel soft and hydrated temporarily, while making you feel like you need more HA after the product is rinsed 🙈. The key to true skin comfort is in the molecular weight of the Hyaluronic Acid used within a formula. HA needs to be absorbed to ensure that it is able to provide lasting hydration and not just temporary effects. For absorption into the skin at multiple depths, it's really important to combine varying molecular weights of HA. All our HA offerings use multiple molecular weights to encourage hydration to build within the skin and not just on the surface. We know that having so many options can be confusing, so we're breaking down our HA skincare offerings over the next 3 posts: ⁣ 💦 The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 contains 3 forms of Hyaluronic Acid, combining low-, medium- and high-molecular weights in addition to an HA crosspolymer to offer multi-depth hydration and promote the look of plump skin. A net concentration of 2% HA is an extremely high concentration which may increase the absorption time of this formula. This formula also incorporates Vitamin B5 to enhance surface hydration and support healthy-looking skin. We have also introduced a hyaluronic acid alternative within The Ordinary (Marine Hyaluronics 🐠) which is a low viscosity formula containing marine-derived water reservoirs and several skin health-supporting amino acids to attract and hold water similar to hyaluronic acid while absorbing quickly and efficiently. ($6.80 | £5.90 | €6.80)
