Not All Hyaluronic Acid Is Created Equal

Let’s talk about why not all hyaluronic acid is created equal.
Hyaluronic acid is considered a macromolecule. This indicates that applying hyaluronic acid topically is not always effective because of its inability to properly absorb into the skin.
That is why at Fitglow we use multi-size hyaluronic acid to ensure this isn't a problem. Multi-size HA is a broken down version of the natural hyaluronic acid molecule. Its multiple sizes have the ability to penetrate deeper into the layers of the epidermis in a more digestible, compatible way.
The varying HA sizes enhance effectiveness and allow the skin it to repair itself and develop its own natural self defence. The added boost of hydration in the layers residing within the epidermis gives the skin an enhanced appearance.
Fine lines and wrinkles will not be magically erased with HA, but the extra moisture contributes plumping and filling the nooks and loss of density within these layers, resulting in a more youthful appearance and fine lines and wrinkles are smoother and less noticeable. Plus, HA also has incredible anti inflammatory benefits and will soothe and diminish irritation and inflammation.
Without its own naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, the skin will become thinner and drier, which can result in more irritable skin because of its loss of defence against environmental aggressors. That is why continuing to keep your skins HA intact is vitally important for overall skin health.
