Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C team up for a major rejuvenating boost, supporting the natural production of skin-firming collagen and increasing hydration in connective tissues throughout the body. Once absorbed, Hyaluronic acid is broken down into smaller fragments before migrating to the skin, tissues, joints or wherever it is needed.

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that our bodies naturally make, and it is most prevalent in our skin, the synovial fluid that lubricates our joints, and all tissues and fluids in the body. As we age, we see a decrease of hyaluronic acid in the body and our ability to produce new hyaluronic acid becomes impaired. Its functions include hydration, lubrication of joints, and regulation of several aspects of tissue repair. Hyaluronic acid is nothing new in the beauty industry, where it is hailed a hero skincare ingredient due to its remarkable water binding capabilities. Recently, oral consumption of hyaluronic acid products has gained interest due to its ability to hold approximately 1,000 times its weight in water.
In humans, hyaluronic acid in the skin accounts for 50% of the total body hyaluronic acid, and thus having adequate amounts in the skin is crucial for maintaining skin moisture. A growing number of studies have shown that by supplementing with hyaluronic acid, huge improvements in skin moisture, skin texture, and wrinkles can be observed. This is because the metabolites of hyaluronic acid can promote cell proliferation in the skin, and the resulting increase in cell number helps fill in the gaps in the skin and suppresses the skin’s water loss. Vitamin C supplementation is also linked to skin improvement due to its role in supporting collagen formation.

Q: What is the difference between sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronic acid?
A: Sodium hyaluronate is a water-soluble salt form of hyaluronic acid and is more stable. This form also makes it more resistant to oxidation. Sodium hyaluronate has a lower molecular weight than hyaluronic acid, allowing it to be more readily absorbed.
Q: I’m already using hyaluronic acid topically, why should I consider taking it orally?
A: Application of topical hyaluronic acid only addresses the skin issues at the surface level and the effect will be diminished gradually, whereas with a supplement the effect will be maintained by taking them continuously. Additionally, supplements can be taken throughout the day to support the inner body such as your joints, bones, and tissues.
Q: What is the source of Organika's hyaluronic acid?
A: Our hyaluronic acid is fermented from bacterial origin, making this a vegan-friendly product that is safer, purer, and more sustainable.
Q: Can I add this to my hot drinks?
A: Yes, our hyaluronic acid is stable in temperatures up to 100C. However, to fully reap the benefits of the added vitamin C, we recommend adding this to room temperature or cold beverages.
