Hyaluronic acid is found in human skin and is associated with the binding of water in the dermis. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases. Already from the age of 25 a slow percentage loss of this important factor occurs. The effect of loss of hyaluronic acid are, among others wrinkles and general loss of skin vitality. At age 60, we only have 1/5 of the percentage of HA compared to youthful skin.
Many cosmetics use only one type of hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the action is often limited to surface effects. In BIOXX products we use a mixture of 3 types of hyaluronic acid, which differ in the size of the molecules and thus have different absorption through the skin.
- HMS (High Molecular Weight) penetrates into the shallower layers of the skin. Creates surface protection and reduces water evaporation.
- LMW (Low Molecular Weight) penetrates deeper and has a slightly different function that improves skin firmness and regenerates.
- Ultra Low Molecular Weight UMLW (Ultra Low Molecular Weight) penetrates the deepest and provides hydration in the deepest layers of the skin.
