What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found inside the human body. It's key properties are to keep the skin hydrated whilst adding plumpness. HA naturally breaks down in the body during metabolism and is then replaced. However as we get older and our metabolism slows down, replacement of HA is less often which results in less hydrated skin and less volume in the skin.

Medical professionals have been using HA in arthritis treatment and during eye surgery.
