Consists of YORA’s own unique blend of hyaluronic acids: Grade ® Hyaluronate, PrimalHyalTM 300, PrimalHyal 50

Hyaluronate contains sodium hyaluronate, the main component of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Sodium hyaluronate is also the major constituent of proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are complex molecules that make up the cartilage and are responsible for firmness, elasticity, and hydration of the connective tissue. As such, sodium hyaluronate is involved in many important biological processes such as tissue repair and regeneration.

Sodium hyaluronate is also chemically referred to as the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is known to absorb and retain large amounts of water. This helps the skin to maintain the correct humidity and moisture balance even during low humidity. Hyaluronic acid also enhances keratin’s flexibility and elasticity, which creates a lifting and relaxing effect on the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin but this percentage decreases as we age. As a result, there is reduced hydration and moisture in the skin. Since hyaluronic acid can restore the skin’s natural hydration levels, it can be combined with oils and emollients to moisturize the face and body. It treats dehydrated, undernourished, devitalized, or wrinkled skin to prevent premature skin aging.
