We are all about effective, natural skincare ingredients that make our skin feel and look amazing… so why use Hyaluronic Acid?
Yes, this ingredient does come from a lab, but it’s actually made to replicate a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies. It is present in our eyes, connective tissue and joints, but 50% of our body’s total Hyaluronic Acid level is in your skin! We are born with lots of it, it’s actually what makes a baby’s skin so soft and firm. As we age, our skin begins to lose this moisture, causing it to sag and produce lines and wrinkles. No wonder this has become such a popular skincare ingredient! Here we list some of its benefits:


The Hyaluronic Acid molecules are too large to penetrate the top layer of the skin. They set on your skin’s surface and hold up to 1000 times their weight in water! Helping your skin absorb moisture and stay hydrated and healthy.


It strengthens your skin’s protective barrier to give you stronger, healthier skin by shielding your skin’s outer layers from the environment with rich moisture. This makes its surface less vulnerable to damage and infection from getting through. Additionally, it has been proven to help repair skin with it’s soothing moisture and anti-inflammatory properties.

When your skin is supple and hydrated, it plumps up to appear more toned by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Imagine a juicy grape compared to a raisin. Hyaluronic Acid temporarily restores skin’s moisture along with some oomph and youthful rejuvenation!


Jessica Weiser, a board-certified dermatologist at New York Dermatology Group, recommends Hyaluronic Acid for people with dry or eczema-prone skin and to help skin recover after a chemical peel, laser treatment, or resurfacing.


While it doesn’t directly clear acne, it’s used in blemish-fighting formulas to draw moisture to the skin and improve dryness. Those who struggle with breakouts know how drying topical acne treatments can be, and when our skin is dry, it actually produces more oil to compensate – which in excess could clog pores and lead to more acne. For this reason, moisturizing is key to control those stubborn blemishes.


Hyaluronic Acid gives your skin antioxidant defense against UV damage. Free radicals can break down collagen and elastin, making wrinkles and sagging more apparent.


This super ingredient has been proven to be a gentle and great moisturizer for every skin type, including oily and sensitive skin. Since it’s already a component of your skin, it poses a very low risk for allergic reaction or irritation, however, as with any new skincare product, it’s wise to do a patch test and wait 24-48 hours to see how your skin will react.

These days, there is Hyaluronic Acid in makeup, serums, moisturizers, injections and even supplements! We love to get our fix from our O.M.G. Overnight Miracle Glow Night Cream and our Jellycioso Eye Masks + Hyaluronic Acid to restore our skin’s hydration year-round.

You’ll find Hyaluronic Acid listed in our product’s ingredients as “Sodium Hyaluronate” this term is used interchangeably with Hyaluronic Acid in the beauty industry, but they are a bit different. Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecule, making it easier to absorb and penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin to deliver all its benefits.
Our OMG Night Cream and Jellycioso Eye Masks also contain Retinol to help exfoliate and fade fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Hyaluronic Acid is light enough to help Retinol penetrate skin while making sure your skin’s moisture level is replenished, preventing any redness and irritation.
So there you have it. Whether you’re looking for ultra-hydration, diminishing wrinkles or simply protecting and boosting your skin’s health, this powerful ingredient literally has you covered!
