Dermatologists have long recommended products with hyaluronic acid (known as HA) to patients due to its incredible moisturizing benefits. But did you know you can actually harness all these properties to benefit your hair too!
While Hyaluronic Acid is one of the buzzwords for skincare it’s hardly mentioned when it comes to your hair and as such it’s hard to get products that include this incredible ingredient! (But don’t worry we at Ginger & Pearl have you covered with our incredible range!!)
WHAT ACTUALLY IS HYALURONIC ACID AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar that is found in our bodies. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue, and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. It essentially works by acting as a cushion to prevent wear and tear. It is also the most hydrating polymer known and can hold over 600X its own weight in water, giving skin volume and fullness.
In recent clinical studies it’s been shown to be a key molecule in skin ageing (so if you’re not using it already it’s absolutely one to add to your daily skin care regime.
SO WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOUR HAIR?
We’ve talked about the benefits that Hyaluronic Acid can do for your skin but it has a myriad of benefits for your hair too!
Hyaluronic acid is similar to a fertilizer for your hair because it can increase hair growth as well as your individual strand diameter meaning thicker hair! Because of it’s moisturising properties it does wonders for people suffering from a dry scalp too without giving the greasiness that some emollients and moisturising agents can.
There’ve also been studies into how Hyaluronic Acid can benefit those with postnatal hair loss and there is only going to be more in depth studies as the evidence grows.
WHERE DOES OUR HYALURONIC ACID COME FROM?
Great question because traditionally Hyaluronic Acid comes from roosters… and as such is absolutely not vegan friendly! (Yes that means that unless stated any HA containing beauty products are made from animals).
Our Hyaluronic Acid has been specially sourced from a certified vegan supplier and is made by producing enzymes from a bacteria based biofermentation process; meaning you can get all the fantastic qualities of HA without any of the ethical issues that come from traditional sources.
