A Primer: Hyaluronic Acid

A Primer: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (“HA”) — everywhere touted, nowhere really explained.  HA also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is NATURALLY PRODUCED BY YOUR BODY.

The largest amounts of it are found in your skin (nearly 50%) and its main, but not only, function is to retain water to keep your tissues/skin well lubricated and moisturized.  Think hydrated, healthier, more youthful scalp and well-conditioned, less brittle hair. 

Adding HA to your skin/scalp with lots of product has its downsides.  For one, it pulls water from deeper levels of your dermis and damages cellular activity, which in the long run does more harm than good.  There is also some evidence that cancer cells are sensitive to hyaluronic acid and grow, so exercise caution. 

The best way to improve HA levels in your body is ensure you have healthy cells that are producing max amounts of HA.  However, the natural aging process and exposure to things like UV rays from the sun, chemicals, smoke and pollution can decrease its amounts in the skin. 

This is why M F L O R E N S is universally good for every scalp, hair type, age, sex and is ESSENTIAL for everyone.  With its full-spectrum nutrition, actives, enzymes, proteins — it ensures your cells are performing optimally and producing adequate levels of HA, so you support your body organically and via biological design.
