Peut-on dire que l'acide hyaluronique est un actif "anti-âge" ?

Can we say that hyaluronic acid is an "anti-ageing" active ingredient?

Summary
Published February 20, 2024, by Maylis, Chemical Engineer — 3 min read

A natural biomolecule found in the dermis, hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic sugar with remarkable moisturising properties. It acts like a molecular sponge: it is capable of retaining up to 1,000 times its weight in water. In skincare, it prevents the dehydration of the epidermis and the appearance of wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid is therefore indeed one of the favoured active ingredients to fill wrinkles and reduce the signs of ageing. Its mode of action varies depending on its size:

  • High molecular weight hyaluronic acid:

    As its name suggests, this molecule is too large to penetrate deeply into the skin barrier. Therefore, it acts on the surface of the epidermis and forms a protective veil against external aggressions and dehydration. When incorporated into a facial care product, this form of hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the superficial layers of the skin and smooth out expression and dehydration wrinkles and fine lines. It is particularly recommended for adding freshness to the complexion.

  • Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid:

    Conversely, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is a micro-molecule that penetrates deeply into the skin. This infiltrates the layers of the epidermis where it captures and gels water for a plumping effect on the surface and maximum hydration. It boosts its own production by fibroblasts. It helps to reduce existing wrinkles and prevents skin ageing.

Discover three hyaluronic acid treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, to be used in the following order.

  1. Combined with aloe vera for comprehensive moisturising action, the hydrating toner helps to balance the skin's pH following cleansing/makeup removal stages and reduces dehydration fine lines.

  2. Our hydrating serum formulated with 3% hyaluronic acid is an ultra-concentrated formula to be applied morning and evening to smooth out wrinkles and tone the skin.

  3. The nourishing face cream is enriched with lipid-replenishing and hydrating active ingredients and is composed of 98% natural origin ingredients. It restores suppleness to the skin and reduces the appearance of fine expression lines.
