In the world of skincare, there’s one ingredient that stands out for its remarkable ability to hydrate, plump, and rejuvenate the skin: hyaluronic acid. This miracle, highly effective ingredient which is often dubbed as the “fountain of youth,” has gained widespread popularity and is used in many skincare products and aesthetic treatments. Let’s dive into the science behind hyaluronic acid and explore its vast range of benefits for your skin. 

What is hyaluronic acid?

The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid (HA). It is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, primarily found in the skin and connective tissues. It is a humectant, meaning it has the ability to not only attract water, but to retain this moisture within the skin. Hyaluronic acid has the impressive capacity to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a crucial component for maintaining hydration and plumpness within the skin.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin

Intense hydration

 The most well-known benefit of hyaluronic acid is its ability to hydrate the skin. When applied topically, it draws moisture from the environment into the skin, instantly plumping and smoothing the complexion. This makes it an ideal ingredient for all skin types, but particularly dry or sensitive skin.

Anti-ageing properties

 As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in our skin declines, leading to loss of elasticity and the formation of signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. By replenishing hyaluronic acid levels through skincare products or aesthetic treatments, you can help to restore moisture and diminish the appearance of ageing signs, promoting a more youthful looking complexion. 

Reduces skin texture

 Hyaluronic acid not only hydrates the skin’s surface but also helps to improve its texture. Regular use can result in softer, smoother skin with a more even tone and reduced roughness. 

Boosts collagen production

Collagen is another essential protein that plays a role in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. It also helps the skin stretch and recoil back into shape, making the skin more resilient to factors such as ageing. It supports wound healing too by speeding up the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Soothing and calming

Individuals with sensitive or irritated skin can find that hyaluronic acid can provide relief. It reduces issues such as inflammation or redness and has a non-irritating nature.

Incorporating hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine


Hyaluronic acid can be found in various skincare products, this includes moisturisers and serums which usually contain a higher, more potent concentration of HA. Using these skincare products can ensure long lasting hydration and tackle issues such as dry or dull skin.

Face masks

Face masks are a way to provide your skin with an instant boost of hyaluronic acid and are ideal post aesthetic treatments to soothe the skin. We recommend the Jalupro Face Mask which provides deeper ingredient penetration than regular sheet masks.

Skin boosters

Skin boosters are injectable hyaluronic acid treatments that many call ‘injectable moisturisers’. When injected into the skin, they provide an instant boost of hydration and tackle issues like fine lines or wrinkles that comes with diminished levels of hyaluronic acid. Here at Refine Clinical Wholesale, one of our customer favourite skin boosters is Ejal 40 that revitalises dehydrated & damaged skin.
