Sodium Hyaluronate : Master Moisturiser for your skin
Normally our body produces most of the compounds necessary for the maintenance of our skin and body. But with aging or because of harmful external factors, the production of these compounds decreases.
One such compound which is produced in our body is hyaluronic acid or hyaluronan. It is a water-soluble compound found in our eyes, connective tissues and our skin. The compound we have added for providing the body with external hyaluronic acid is sodium hyaluronate which is another form of hyaluronic acid.
What is Sodium Hyaluronate?
Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a transparent, slightly sticky substance produced by our body to retain water levels. The highest amount of hyaluronic acid is present in our skin. But, as we get old, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases in our body leading to dry skin and even faster skin aging.
While the primary function of Hyaluronic acid is to retain water in our body, it is needed for several other functions. It is due to Hyaluronic acid that our bones easily move. It keeps our bones lubricated and well-functioning. IN Addition, it also protects our eyes from getting dry and keeps them comfortable. Hyaluronic acid also plays an important role in cellular functions.
Why is Sodium Hyaluronate good for skin?
It is important that our skin retains water and moisture so that it can stay healthy and plump. Normally, our body produces enough hyaluronic acid to preserve the moisture in our skin. But due to aging, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases in our body. This leads to a progressive loss of moisture. This moisture loss and the resulting dry skin lead to rapid skin aging. This leads to our skin appearing to be rough, saggy and old with fine lines, dull skin, and age spots.
This is why our skin needs hyaluronic acid externally. It is a humectant that attracts moisture from the atmosphere and locks it in our skin. Furthermore, it also can prevent moisture loss. When Hyaluronic acid is absorbed in the skin, it is able to retain moisture. Because of this, it sufficiently plumps our skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We at Bee Elite Essentials’, use Sodium hyaluronate in our products. This provides the skin with necessary hydration that our body is unable to retain naturally. Along with other super-powerful ingredients like hyaluronic acid, our Ageless series brings the most effective anti-aging skincare range.
