About Face: Hyaluronic Acid + Marine Omega-3
Here at Good Science Beauty, our skincare products are grounded in proven science. It all starts with the ingredients that we load into our Good Silicon+® carrier. This is the third in a series of blog posts that take an in-depth look at our ingredients, how they work, and why we use them in our products.
Hyaluronic acid and marine omega-3s come together in our Hydrating Face Cream (003-Hy) to hydrate your skin and lock in its moisture. The two ingredients boost each other’s performance to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and leave you with plump, healthy skin.
If you’re looking to revive dry, dehydrated skin, hyaluronic acid is your new best friend. Hyaluronic acid is a very large molecule that holds 1000 times its weight in water. Its size makes it difficult to penetrate the skin when applied as a cream, which is why it’s usually injected as fillers instead. But with Good Silicon+®, we’ve managed to encapsulate, compress, and protect hyaluronic acid so it can be absorbed topically, without injections.
Although our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, factors such as aging and environmental stressors decrease its levels over time, resulting in dehydrated and dull skin. That’s why it’s important to replenish lost hyaluronic acid.
We’ve paired hyaluronic acid with marine omega-3, a fatty acid that strengthens your skin’s barrier in order to keep hydration in and irritation out. It’s rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which can help prevent premature aging and promote healthy cell membranes, resulting in soft, supple, and wrinkle-free skin. Marine omega-3 also reduces the activity of hyaluronidase, the enzyme which breaks down hyaluronic acid. Our marine omega-3 is ethically sourced from sustainable European fish and shellfish sources and fully encapsulated in our Good Silicon+®, so there’s no nasty smell.
These two key ingredients bring out the best in each other, working together to help moisturize, lock in hydration, reduce irritation, and diminish the signs of premature aging. But none of that would be possible without Good Silicon+®. Our patented carrier technology delivers hyaluronic acid and marine omega-3 deep within your skin, where they to effectively plump and protect your skin over time. Good Silicon+® then dissolves into orthosilicic acid, which supports natural collagen production and tissue repair.
We use science to bring the best qualities out of the finest ingredients and deliver them straight to where your skin needs them most. Together, the hydrating and restorative powers of hyaluronic acid and marine omega-3 deeply moisturize and repair your skin from within.
