Hyaluronic Acid is a multi tasking anti ageing wonder! It has a high capacity to retain moisture so really helps us as we age to keep our skin supple and plumper.


So what is Hyaluronic Acid? It's a type of molecule composed partly of sugars and is actually a natural structural component of skin, being present in connective tissue throughout the human body.

One gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water so it really is a super skin food and a great plumper. 

Not only is it a skin plumper but it is also a great skin barrier protectant and repairer so if you have sun damaged, acne damaged or sensitive skin this helps supports this and is suitable for all skin types. 

More and more products are including it to help plump skin and protect skin including INIKA who have included this wonder ingredient in their primer and liquid foundations. The primer is a wonderful base for even coverage and also helps with anti ageing. Now your make up can work that little bit harder!
