Here Already (HA)
Did you know that hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar which is contained in your skin? This sugar is remarkably water dense and can hold a thousand times its weight in water. The water contained in HA helps your skin and joints stay hydrated and traps water in your body so it doesn’t just evaporate into the air.
You can improve the health of your skin and reduce the visible signs of aging by increasing your hyaluronic acid intake through diet. Foods rich in hyaluronic acid include mushrooms, artichokes, spinach, and tomatoes.
Additionally, there are a variety of supplements that contain hyaluronic acid available over the counter. While research regarding the efficacy of these supplements is limited, many experts recommend taking a daily supplement of hyaluronic acid for skin health.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in plants, plant extracts, and herbs. It is one of the key nutrients that help the body produce collagen and elastin, the two most important proteins that hold your skin together. These proteins are your major source of collagen and elastin.
In addition to these nutrients, hyaluronic acid also has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps with inflammation. The body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid is what provides your skin with elasticity.
This makes it easier for you to treat acne scars naturally and wrinkles as well as other signs of aging such as age spots, dark circles under eyes, puffiness around the eyes and mouth, fine lines in the face, uneven skin tone around the eyes as well as dark spots on the face or deeper wrinkles under the eyes.
A People Preservative
Due to its ability to preserve water and hold it for longer periods of time, HA is considered a humectant (a substance which retains water). Other common humectants in beauty products include Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHAs) and Salicylic Acid which can be found in our blissani Naturals toner. Applying these products to the skin when moisturizing, creates a longer lasting effect than moisturizing alone. A humectant is an important component in any natural skin care regimen.

Water is the most common humectant in beauty products. Other common humectants include Eucalyptus Oil and Aloe Vera Gel. Eucalyptus oil and aloe gel are commonly used in beauty products due to their ability to retain moisture and provide moisture-blocking properties.
Eucalyptus oil has a higher water content than aloe gel, which helps it retain longer-lasting properties. A hydrophobic humectant, such as Eucalyptus Oil, can also be used on skin that is dry and irritated.
Humectants are an essential part of any natural skin care regimen. Humectants help form an invisible barrier between the skin and the air, which protects the skin from harmful UV rays and helps maintain healthy skin tone, texture and firmness. Humectants are also found in many other beauty products like moisturizers, essential oils, etc...
Hyaluronic Acid as a humectant
Hyaluronic Acid is an effective humectant and an effective ingredient for skin care. It helps the skin retain moisture and form a protective barrier against harmful ultraviolet rays.
Humectants play a crucial role in moisturizing and hydrating the skin. They are a type of moisturizer that attracts and retains moisture from the environment, helping to improve the skin's hydration levels. As a result, they contribute to maintaining a healthy skin barrier and promoting a supple, youthful complexion.
In our formulations, we prioritize using natural humectants derived from botanical sources. These natural humectants offer multiple benefits for the skin while aligning with our commitment to clean, sustainable beauty. Here are some key natural humectants that we incorporate into our products:
Glycerine: Glycerine is a well-known natural humectant used in both the cosmetic and food industries. It helps draw moisture from the air and binds it to the skin, keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. Its moisturizing properties make it a valuable ingredient in our natural beauty formulations.
Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that has exceptional water-retaining properties. It can hold a significant amount of moisture, contributing to improved skin hydration and a plumper appearance. We include hyaluronic acid in our products to help restore and maintain the skin's moisture balance.
Sodium lactate: Derived from natural sources such as fermented sugars, sodium lactate is another natural humectant that aids in retaining moisture and enhancing skin hydration. It is gentle on the skin and provides a soothing effect, making it an ideal choice for our natural beauty formulations.
Honey: Honey is a well-known humectant that has been used for centuries in skincare. It draws moisture from the air and helps lock it into the skin, resulting in improved hydration and a smoother complexion. We incorporate honey into our products for its humectant properties and its ability to nourish and soften the skin.
By utilizing these natural humectants, we ensure that our products deliver effective hydration while adhering to our commitment to using clean and sustainable ingredients. We prioritize the integrity of the skin and aim to provide products that not only moisturize but also promote overall skin health.
