Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan, is an anionic, non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues.
It is a natural substance that is produced by our bodies, and it is found in our skin, connective tissue and eyes so if our bodies produce this substance naturally then why do we need to buy skincare products that contains Hyaluronic Acid?
The reality is as we get older our skin starts aging around the age of 25, we begin to produce less Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies and with the exposure to ultra-violet rays from the sun and pollution and diet can also decrease the amount Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies as well so like everything else in life, our bodies need supplements.
The good news is Hyaluronic Acid can be found in supplements and skincare products like creams and serums and the chances are you are probably using Hyaluronic Acid in some of the skincare products already without knowing. So now the question, if our bodies produce Hyaluronic Acid then are we harvesting it from humans?
Fortunately, No this isn’t the case, in fact there are 2 ways to extract Hyaluronic Acid, the first being animal extracted (from Rooster Combs typically) and the second naturally extracted from a bacterial fermentation using glucose that is corn derived to create the hyaluronic acid in a bio-fermentation process a more natural and sustainable process. At Forest Natural Skincare, we use the later as it is important to highlight the natural and sustainable practices we use and follow in our manufacturing processes.
