What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Types of Hyaluronic Acid

"XS" ​​Hyaluronic Acid (low molecular weight)

Low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid consists of small molecules that can easily penetrate the skin. Therefore, this small type of hyaluronic acid can act in the  layers of the epidermis to revitalize the skin more in depth. In this case, a cutaneous application of  XS Hyaluronic Acid  would also help to stimulate the natural synthesis.

"XL" ​​Hyaluronic Acid (high molecular weight)

Conversely, as the name suggests, high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid is a large molecule. It acts on the surface of the epidermis and is mainly  used for surface hydration when the skin is barely marked by signs of ageing. Ideal for reducing expression lines and wrinkles and bringing freshness to the skin.
