Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid)
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring component of the body that acts as a cushioning and lubrication agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes. It is also a very powerful moisturiser with the ability to hold up to six times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep the skin hydrated and gives skin a softer feel, and a more youthful appearance. As the body ages, this causes the natural levels of hyaluronic acid to decline over time, leaving the skin dry and vulnerable. That's where our serum comes in! Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum makes a really efficient moisturiser, providing the skin with excellent hydrating properties. This results in increased skin smoothness, softening and assists in improving the appearance of wrinkles. Although the solution does contain preservatives it is recommended to store the solution in your fridge to extend the shelf life or to add a cooling effect to the skin.
Vitamin B5 binds to and holds water in the skin, moisturizing and leaving it soft, smooth, and more supple. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is involved in activating the proliferation of cells that are important for wound healing and restoring the function of the skin barrier.
