The Science of Hyaluronic Acid

Why Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance naturally occurring in the human body that attracts and binds water. It is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. By capturing water it plays a very important role in keeping skin smooth and plump. In youth, our skin is rich with Hyaluronic Acid – and our body readily produces it. With age and sun exposure, our skin cells produce less and less Hyaluronic Acid. The result is drier, less elastic skin. With a reduced ability to retain moisture, skin also becomes wrinkled and dull.

When used in skin care products, Hyaluronic Acid boosts moisture levels and helps the skin to regain and strengthen its natural hydrating ability and youthful qualities. It also has a plumping effect as skin is infused with moisture.

What is Super Hyaluronic Acid™?

Complete hydration is essential when it comes to maintaining younger looking skin.

Only Hada Labo Tokyo™ has Super Hyaluronic Acid™, a unique and powerful combination of 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid, designed to restore and strengthen skin’s natural hydrating ability and youthful qualities.

Due to its triple action, Super Hyaluronic Acid™ anchors moisture to different layers of the epidermis to rehydrate skin at multiple levels resulting in superior and long-lasting moisture retention. It replenishes the skin’s moisture levels keeping it hydrated and less prone to wrinkling, while promoting firmness and elasticity. Skin texture and dullness are visibly improved and the look of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging are reduced.

Super Hyaluronic Acid™ Structure

Super Hyaluronic Acid™ is a unique blend of 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid that provides deeper and multi-layer hydration, increasing skin’s levels of moisture dramatically.

Macro Hyaluronic Acid
The largest size molecule in the Super Hyaluronic Acid™ complex, it acts on the skin surface to hold in moisture and prevent evaporation for long-lasting results. A skin-smoothing veil for perfect makeup results.

Hyaluronic Acid Plus
The most innovative type of Hyaluronic Acid Hada Labo Tokyo™ offers. Due to its high water-holding capacity, it provides 2 times more hydration than regular Hyaluronic Acid. Its combination of water and oil-friendly properties allows the Hyaluronic Acid to merge with the skin’s lipid layer for optimum moisture penetration and retention.

Micro Hyaluronic Acid
Due to its micro size, 100 times smaller than Macro Hyaluronic Acid, it penetrates deep into skin to infuse moisture below the surface, providing skin replenishment and moisturization from the inside-out.
