Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, responsible for maintaining moisture levels, nourishing the skin’s matrix and improving the appearance of firmness, plumpness and smoothness. By your 20s, the amount of hyaluronic acid you produce is already declining. SkinCeuticals has created this improved serum to correct the signs of aging that result from this rapid
decline. While many products deliver hyaluronic acid to the surface, HA Intensifi er aims to amplify the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. Recent clinical trials have suggested it could increase your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels by up to 30% or more.
