Found in some anti-ageing products, this ingredient can address the causes of skin losing it's formness, loss of volume and poorly defined facial contours. Treating these concerns can help to restore a youthful look to the face.
Stimulates and supports the collagen network for a firmer skin structure. It has a stimulating effect on metabolic skin activity, reactivating skin cell interactions. The presence of Oligo Peptides in a product also reinforces and stabilises weak connective tissue. This results in improved microcirculation, and improving collagen synthesis. As a result, the dermal network becomes stronger and skin feels firmer and smoother. Also useful in helping with a loss of density.
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance created within the body that forms part of the connective tissue of the skin. One of its key functions is to retain moisture and it has the ability to bind up to 30 times its own molecular weight in water. But as we age, the skin's natural ability to synthesise Hyaluronic Acid depletes and with it, skin smoothness decreases. With an extremely high moisture-storing capacity it also has a regenerating effect on the skin. An extra benefit is its antioxidant property, which can also help with wrinkles and loss of density.
