It also smoothes the look of fine lines and minuscule cracks on the skin and evens out the skin tone to lighten dark areas, and diminishes the appearance of unwanted spots and marks.

Hyaluronic Acid Powder 98% (HA) – (Sodium Hyaluronate)

Naturally occurring, HA acts as a tissue ‘organiser’ and helps to hold water. About one third of the HA in the human body is found in the skin, but this significantly decreases with age. This may therefore contribute to loss of freshness, hydration, moisture and elasticity in the skin, leading to the development of wrinkles. By using skincare products that contain HA, the skin can be softened and elasticity restored, contributing to a significant anti-wrinkle effect.
