Hyaluronic Acid: The Answer to Glowing Skin?

Hyaluronic Acid: The Answer to Glowing Skin?

Hyaluronic acid is hailed as a wonder skin care ingredient, but why exactly is it so beneficial for skin? 

At Snowberry, we’re passionate about putting natural ingredients at the heart of skin care, but you will find some carefully chosen proven scientific ingredients in our collection too, and Hyaluronic acid is one of them. 

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is sometimes also referred to as hyaluronan, and it’s naturally produced by our bodies.  

Transparent in appearance and slightly gooey in texture, Hyaluronic acid plays an essential role in helping to retain moisture levels in your skin, and in your body’s connective tissue to keep everything functioning as it should. 

In fact, Hyaluronic acid is so good at retaining moisture that just one molecule is able to hold up to 10,000 times its own weight in water – that’s some serious hydration potential.

However, our bodies only produce a small amount of Hyaluronic acid naturally, and this declines as we get older. The levels of Hyaluronic acid in our skin can also be affected by exposure to pollution and UV rays from the sun. 

When is Hyaluronic acid the answer to radiant skin?

Using Hyaluronic acid in your skin care regimen can: 

  • Help tackle redness 
  • Leave your skin more hydrated 
  • Keep your skin feeling moisturized
  • Help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Leave you with plumper, smoother, more youthful-looking skin 

All of these benefits can combine to leave you with more radiant, glowing skin, but you shouldn’t rely solely on Hyaluronic acid to do it all. Enhance your skin care routine with natural skin care ingredients, and think about what you’re putting into your body to nourish your skin from the inside out as well. 

Snowberry’s Hyaluronic acid serum

Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in our New Radiance Face Serum, which is designed to hydrate, soften, plump, smooth, and strengthen skin. It can also help to tackle the aging effects of free radicals on the skin, including dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, thanks to its unique blend of carefully chosen ingredients. 

This serum also contains Kanuka honey, a naturally nourishing, moisturizing variety of honey with anti-inflammatory properties, which we source from our very own Snowberry Gardens. 

Hyaluronic acid and Kanuka honey are accompanied by our CuPep peptide complex, which we spent five years developing with researchers from the University of Auckland. CuPep is designed to target the effects of free radicals on the surface of the skin, helping you on your journey to more radiant skin. Learn more about the role of peptides in skin care. 

After using our New Radiance Serum for eight weeks in a Gold Standard Clinical Trial conducted in 2019: 

  • 100% of people said they’d recommend the serum to their best friend, mom, or daughter; 
  • 81% said they were pleased with the appearance of their skin; 
  • 72% planned to continue using the serum; 
  • Participants reported that the appearance of their fine lines was reduced by an average of 25.6%. 

Whether it’s Hyaluronic acid, Kanuka honey, or a peptide complex, you can be sure that only the best, proven ingredients make their way into your products to create skin care you can trust. Our entire collection is free from nasties, including petrochemicals, silicones, volatile alcohols, and artificial colors, and we’re extremely proud to be 100% carbon-neutral.
