Why we love Hyaluronic acid!

Why does Velettà love Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the human body, particularly in connective tissue, skin, and eyes. It has become increasingly popular in skincare products because it’s a key ingredient in plump, glowing skin.


First up, hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. When applied topically, it can help to hydrate the skin, leaving it plump and dewy. It can help prevent flakiness and as a result, improve skin texture. Hydration is key for those of us over 40 years old and particularly those going through menopause.

Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which is one of the reasons our skin loses elasticity and develops fine lines and wrinkles. Replenishing the skin's natural supply of hyaluronic acid is vital to keeping our skin looking its best as we age. 

Enhancing skin barrier function is something of an obsession at Velettà. A fully functioning skin barrier means healthy, resilient skin. Hyaluronic acid can help to enhance the skin barrier function, which can help to protect the skin from external factors such as pollution, UV radiation, and harsh weather conditions. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid is generally well-tolerated by most skin types, including sensitive skin, making it a safe ingredient for everyone to use.

Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in our Youthful Glow AHA Radiance Treatment and Youthful Glow Intensive Hydrating Treatment. The perfect products for skin that has lived.
