Hyaluronic acid (HA for short) is known as ""nature's moisturiser"" because it binds up to 1000 times its own weight of water. HA lubricates joints and muscles and moisturises eyes, but 50% of the body's HA is in the skin. Sadly, the body's production of HA diminishes as we age.
While collagen gives the skin its firmness, it is HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. HA also acts as a 'space filler' between skin cells by absorbing water and helping to keep the skin wrinkle-free - as smooth as a baby's bottom, in fact.
