Aqua Lush Moisturizing Sun Care Formulation
This lightweight and hydrating sun care formulation protects the facial skin with a unique and refreshing water-like after feel.
Hyaluronic acid, also referred to in skincare as hyaluronate or HA, is a water-loving polysaccharide already present in the skin. With age, hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases quite sharply, resulting in a loss of hydration, volume and plumpness. Lines and wrinkles also appear, and skin is left looking dull and lackluster. Usually, when hyaluronic acid is added to skincare products, its humectant properties draw moisture into the skin, helping to combat dryness and dullness. What many people don’t realize is that hyaluronic acid comes in various molecular sizes. Larger molecules stay on the surface and give the skin a ‘dewy’ look, while smaller molecules penetrate deeper into the skin to deliver their hydration benefits.1
Our new product line, HYA-ACT™ complements our existing ingredient portfolio of highly efficient hyaluronic acid grades. This powerful new beauty line features different molecular weights that deliver the efficacy you need and the beauty benefits your customers want - and it’s friendly to the skin’s microbiome, too.
HYA-ACT™ is a powerhouse of various hyaluronic acid forms:
A single application of HYA-ACT™ M (Medium Molecular Weight of 1.0–1.3 MDa) enhances hydration after just one hour. This medium molecular weight hyaluronic acid strengthens skin’s barrier by building a superior protective film and gives skin a dewy look. Plus, it’s certified microbiome-friendly.
HYA-ACT™ S is the hydration booster for thirsty skin. Also microbiome-friendly, its small molecules fortify skin’s natural barrier, locks in moisture and calm redness. Combined with HYA-ACT™ M, the possibilities are powerful: in an in-vivo study, it delivered up to a 77% hydration boost.
Skin‘s elasticity improves in just 15 days with HYA-ACT™ XS. Our smallest microbiome-friendly hyaluronic acid form retains moisture from the inside, delivering a steady burst of intense hydration and plumping out fine wrinkles.
