This cream’s highest active ingredient is a hyaluronic acid. Please see the benefits below:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan. It is found throughout the body’s connective tissue. Glycosaminoglycans are simply long unbranched carbohydrates, or sugars, called polysaccharides.
HA is the main component of what gives your skin structure. And is responsible for that plump and hydrated look. Therefore, you may have heard the chatter around collagen, but hyaluronic acid is where it’s at.
With the buzz around anti-aging, it’s about time we talk about hyaluronic acid and its benefits for our skin. And why molecular weight of an ingredient is important! It plays a pivotal role in the wound healing process. Also it decreases as we age making us more susceptible to sagging and wrinkles.
Read on to learn the science behind hyaluronic acid! So you can see that HA isn’t just a fad ingredient, but a staple for your skin care routine.

For starters, HA can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water! In other words, it functions as a humectant and holds water molecules onto the surface of your skin to keep it nice and hydrated.
Therefore, anytime we’re talking about skin that’s well-moisturized, we’re mainly referring to skin that has a lot of water content.
This is the scientific term for the measurement of how much water is evaporated from the skin.
When a product prevents TEWL, that means it’s keeping your skin hydrated by making sure that water doesn’t escape from your skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid does exactly that by slowing the rate at which the water evaporates.
Therefore, if you’re formulating your own products, or purchasing HA products that list the percentage, we recommend keeping the HA concentration below 2 percent.
A very low molecular weight of 5 kDA HA has the ability to penetrate the skin, which means it can potentially carry other unwanted ingredients, chemicals, and bacteria more deeply into the skin. If you have compromised skin, this might be bad news. Thankfully, on its own, HA tends to not cause allergic reactions since our bodies also make it.
Fortunately, cosmetic chemists have this science down, so we can defer to their expertise and what people say about certain HA products. But if you’re formulating your own HA serums, know that not all hyaluronic acid is equal.
There are some varieties of HA that are a bit controversial. Also, increased levels are actually linked to inflammatory skin diseases like psoriasis.
One study found that an application of HA actually slowed down wound healing, compared to just pure glycerin. This may have been because of the concentration and molecular weight of the hyaluronic acid.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid on the skin has to do with its molecular weight and concentration. In this case, size matters! The molecular weight refers to its mass, or how big the HA molecule is. This is measured in something called unified atomic mass units — daltons, or kDa for short.
HA between 50 to 1,000 kDa is the most beneficial for skin, with about 130 kDa being the best, according to the most recent human studies. Anything higher won’t make too much of a difference. Anything lower might cause inflammation.
When you look at studies, you’ll see a pattern, but one of the most thorough studies looked at HA with different molecular weights, including 50, 130, 300, 800, and 2,000 kDa.
After one month, they found that treatment with 130 kDa HA was the most effective, increasing skin elasticity by 20 percent. Both the 50 and 130 kDa groups had significant improvement in wrinkle-depth and skin roughness after 60 days. All the other molecular weights still improved elasticity and skin hydration, just less so. You can read more about this molecular weight analysis from the original breakdown here.
The diameter of hyaluronic acid is also important as it determines the ingredient’s ability to penetrate the skin. A recent study investigated the efficacy of a topical, low molecular nano-hyaluroid acid. They found that smaller substances under 500 kDa:
-changed the depth of wrinkles
-increased elasticity around the eye
-absorbed into the skin better
Therefore, larger molecules, with a molecular weight greater than 500 kDa, had a more difficult time passing through the skin barrier.
There are skin care products out there that take away all the guesswork for you by combining various HA molecules for maximum effectiveness. It’s like a jam-packed party of hyaluronic acid-y goodness.
HA ingredients to look for:
hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid
sodium acetylated hyaluronate
Start with a clean face and hands. Wash your face with lukewarm water and a face cleaner suitable for your skin type. Afterwards, splash your face with cold water and gently pat it dry with a soft towel.
Take out a pea-sized amount of face cream onto the back of your hand. Don’t worry if you took out too little. A little bit often goes a long way. You can always apply more later, if necessary.
If the cream comes in a jar, then scoop out a small amount using a small spoon or scoop. This will prevent your fingers from contaminating the product inside the jar. Also, you can find scoops at most beauty supply stores.
Start applying the cream to your face. Dab the cream onto your face in small dots. Focus on trouble areas, such as the cheeks and forehead. Avoid areas that tend to get very oily, such as the creases to either side of your nostrils.
If you have combination skin, focus more on the dry areas and less on the oily areas.
Gently massage the cream into your skin using small, upward, circular motions. Never drag downward on your skin. Also, be sure to leave a ½ inch (1.27 centimeter) margin around your eyes. Most face creams are not suitable for the delicate, sensitive skin around your eyes.
Apply more cream, if necessary. Look over your face. If there are any bare patches on your face, then apply a little bit more cream. Don’t slather the cream on, however. Because more cream is not necessarily better or more effective.
Consider applying some face cream to your neck. Many people tend to forget this area. The skin on your neck is delicate, and tends to age the fastest. Therefore, it needs some attention as well.
Wait for your skin to absorb the cream before getting dressed or putting on makeup. During this time, you can do your hair or brush your teeth.
