What it is known for:

Known to have the capacity to absorb water, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is critical to skin's structural support. Discovered almost a century ago, HA was first found to have significant clinical applications for joint diseases. Naturally present in skin and known to decrease with age, this sugar molecule helps provide hydration, plumping and skin benefits for youthful looking skin. HA is typically classified by molecular weights. These classes of HA can provide essential moisture immediately by acting as a humectant or help to boost skin’s natural HA production, depending on the class and molecular weight.

How we use it:

Across Darphin, we use our scientific expertise to selectively utilize the appropriate molecular weights of HA. Appears on ingredient labels lists as Sodium Hyaluronate.
