[Hya] + [Hyb] + [Hyc]

  • Presentation

    Increases the power of skin’s water retention for deep and even hydration of the different epidermis layers.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Stimulates aquaporins and improves the flow of moisture between the skin's various layers to hydrate them all evenly.

    --> Boosts keratinocyte growth and collagen synthesis for younger, firmer skin.

    --> Deeply hydrates skin.

    --> Increases skin's ability to retain moisture in its deepest layers : hyaluronic acid significantly reduces gradual moisture loss.

    Hydration is essential for healthy skin. The body’s ultimate protective barrier, the skin needs optimal hydration to remain firm, dense and supple. Yet the skin’s integrity is under daily attack from the cold and dry, pollution, the sun, and even the use of certain beauty products. These factors damage and irritate the skin, ultimately drying it out.

    Good hydration depends on three factors. First and foremost, preserving the skin’s external protective layer to limit gradual moisture loss. Second, locking moisture in the skin’s deepest layers. Finally, improving the flow of moisture between these various layers. Deeply and evenly hydrated, the skin stays supple and better prepared to fight the signs of ageing.
