What you need to know about organic hyaluronic acid

17/05/2021

The term "acid" may sound scary... but hyaluronic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid plays an essential role in protecting the epidermis. It prevents skin dehydration while plumping the skin. Organic hyaluronic acid serum, organic hyaluronic acid cream, collagen and organic hyaluronic acid cream... this molecule is found in the composition of many cosmetic products, notably for its anti-ageing properties. Discover all the benefits of organic hyaluronic acid.

What is organic hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is present in significant quantities in the extracellular matrix of the dermis, the part of the skin located between the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) and the hypodermis (the deepest layer). But it is also found in the connective, nervous and epithelial tissues of our body: vitreous humor, cartilage, synovial fluid, etc. It helps to hydrate the skin, protect the joints thanks to its lubricating function, regulate the healing process (by providing the nutrients essential for the formation of new tissue) and nourish collagen, which is also responsible for the plumpness of our body's surface. But hyaluronic acid also serves to fill the spaces between cells, thus participating in the cohesion of tissues and the elasticity of the skin. Did you know that this molecule has the ability to capture and retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water? A real little sponge!

As for hyaluronic acid obtained by biotechnology (from substances of natural origin, such as soft wheat in particular), it is found in most anti-ageing care products, but also sold in the form of food supplements. To manufacture hyaluronic acid of natural origin, wheat grains are bio-fermented with lactic acid bacteria, followed by a succession of purification stages without chemical solvents in order to obtain a pure, high-quality final product.

Organic hyaluronic acid, the star of anti-ageing products

Just like collagen, the amount of hyaluronic acid naturally present in our body decreases over the years, giving way to the first signs of aging. The skin becomes less toned, loses its elasticity and dries out. Wrinkles and fine lines appear, and the oval of the face sags. The use of cosmetic products enriched with organic hyaluronic acid helps to provide the skin with the substance necessary for a smooth and plump appearance. Organic hyaluronic acid is an essential ingredient in skin care products designed to remodel and/or lift the face and décolleté.

From the age of 50, the level of hyaluronic acid naturally present in our body drops by half. In recent years, hyaluronic acid of natural origin has therefore become the essential molecule in cosmetic products designed to combat skin ageing. Its exceptional moisturizing properties and its high level of tolerance (it presents much less risk of allergies than collagen) make organic hyaluronic acid an exceptional product for reducing wrinkles and plumping the skin. Providing your body with organic hyaluronic acid will strengthen the mattress that supports the skin, and compensate for the natural loss of this molecule over the years.

Of course, these techniques should not replace a balanced lifestyle, without which beautiful, firm and radiant skin is simply impossible to maintain. A healthy and varied diet, a daily intake of at least 1.5 litres of water, regular exercise and restful nights are the keys to a fresh and radiant complexion.

What is the best organic hyaluronic acid product?

Daily, thorough cleansing of the face is also essential to maintain healthy, radiant skin. Your beauty routine should be composed of care products adapted to the sensitivity of your skin and be carried out according to a series of steps:

- Make-up removal with an organic make-up removal oil;

- Cleansing with an organic face soap;

- The application of an organic hyaluronic serum and an organic hyaluronic acid cream.

This beauty routine with organic hyaluronic acid will preserve your skin and help it to stay young for longer. Organic hyaluronic acid-enriched skin care products or food supplements should complement this lifestyle, not replace it!

Which product enriched with natural hyaluronic acid to choose?

There are three types of natural hyaluronic acid in cosmetology: low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, intermediate molecular weight natural hyaluronic acid and high molecular weight natural hyaluronic acid. The difference being the size of the molecules used. And it is precisely this size that will determine the field of action of the hyaluronic acid contained in the cosmetic product in question.

Low molecular weight organic hyaluronic acid

The low molecular weight organic hyaluronic acid molecules are very small and will easily penetrate the different layers of the skin. They will reach the dermis and help to boost collagen production, stimulate cell activity and prevent skin slackening. The skin is thus deeply moisturized, plumped up from the inside and visibly firmer.

Organic hyaluronic acid of intermediate molecular weight

Intermediate molecular weight bio-hyaluronic acid has excellent penetration into the epidermis. Although it does not penetrate the skin as deeply as low molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules, it still acts deep down and promotes prolonged hydration of the skin. The skin is plump, wrinkles are filled in and imperfections are erased.

Organic high molecular weight hyaluronic acid

In this case, the organic hyaluronic acid molecules are large. They do not penetrate the skin barrier, but act on the surface of the epidermis. Slight wrinkles are plumped up and the hydration takes place on the surface. Organic hyaluronic acid is used in preventive cosmetic products or for skin showing the first signs of aging.

What foods contain hyaluronic acid?

Organic hyaluronic acid is not a molecule present as such in food. However, certain nutrients can help boost its synthesis. Among the foods to consume to promote the synthesis of organic hyaluronic acid, we find fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants and foods rich in magnesium. Organic hyaluronic acid in the form of natural cosmetics remains an essential means of preserving the skin's youthfulness. The use of organic hyaluronic acid in organic cosmetics allows you to benefit from its hydrating and plumping powers. Very well tolerated by all skin types, natural cosmetics that use organic hyaluronic acid can also be applied to sensitive and reactive skin.

How to apply organic hyaluronic acid?

Applied to the face as day and/or night care, creams enriched with organic hyaluronic acid will smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and give the skin a "youthful glow". Lion's wrinkles (on the forehead), crow's feet (around the eyes) and sun creases (around the mouth) are blurred, as the organic hyaluronic acid applied fills the void that caused them to appear. You can also apply a serum with organic hyaluronic acid to clean, dry skin, just before your usual day cream.

While most cosmetic products enriched with organic hyaluronic acid are designed to rejuvenate the face, there are also body care products that contain this precious molecule. Moisturizing milks, nourishing balms, refreshing jellies... any body product can offer to cocoon your skin while firming it and reshaping your body. The result: your skin is supple, harmonized and deeply moisturized! Apply every day after your shower.

Organic and natural hyaluronic acid contains no trace of animal origin. Obtained by biotechnology, it is composed of plants fermented in the laboratory. It therefore involves the use of bacteria that have often been genetically modified. This technique is however an alternative to hyaluronic acid of animal origin, which is much less attractive. Indeed, hyaluronic acid of animal origin is obtained by a traditional process of extraction of rooster skulls after grinding and chemical treatments. Organic hyaluronic acid is therefore suitable for vegans. However, beware of the rest of the ingredients in the product enriched with organic hyaluronic acid, which may contain substances of animal origin.

Where to find natural hyaluronic acid?

To take advantage of the benefits of this anti-ageing molecule, choose natural hyaluronic acid of plant origin! A certified organic hyaluronic acid product must comply with a specific charter, a guarantee of quality: no use of chemical fertilizers, no use of chemical pesticides, crop rotation to regenerate the soil... These are some of the criteria that only official organic labels can guarantee. In the cosmetics department, you will find these labels under the name Ecocert, Slow Cosmetics, BIDH, Cosmébio, Natrue...
