A hyaluronic acid serum is one of the best serums for daily use no matter your age or skin type – it’s a must for everyone! Zatoru Essentials enhanced the entire hyaluronic acid experience by launching a 100% pure, vegan hyaluronic acid serum that competes with even the high-end brands. Let’s decode the serum together.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) often referred as hyaluronan or sodium hyaluronate is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan (polysaccharide) that is composed of repeating polymeric disaccharides of D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Here are some of HA’s natural properties: supports hydration, moisturization, protection, and provides a framework for blood vessel formation. It is the main component of the skin’s extracellular matrix and plays a major role in the way your skin looks. Aging causes a progressive reduction of the size of HA molecules, so your epidermis loses the principle molecules responsible for binding and retaining water molecules which results in your skin losing much-needed moisture (1).
When you choose your HA serum, you should consider the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid. Low molecular weight HA has been shown to cause an inflammatory response. High molecular weight has been shown to have the opposite effect. We use high quality, high purity HA, that provides high clarity and the most benefits for the skin. (2).
HA serum is a great way to start your daily routine. It moisturizes your skin (it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water) without leaving any oily residue; it rejuvenates and plumps your face. Once your skin is plump and moisturized, your wrinkles and fine lines will start filling up, giving you a smoother look. One of the best ways to use hyaluronic acid is on a soaking wet face followed by the application of your face cream; this will help your skin retain the extra moisture.
Zatoru’s hyaluronic acid contains Sea Kelp Bioferment, this gel is an updated and upgraded version of ingredients found in some of the world’s most expensive products. According to Dr.Sivak, sea kelp bioferment is obtained from sea kelp and supplies a complete nutrient medium that moisturizes skin and scalp. The substrate for fermentation is kelp, a sea macroalga; the procedure makes the cell content of the alga readily available to the skin. It is rich in:
- Fucoidan (antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-aging; also promotes the neutralization of free radicals caused by UV)
- Carrageenan (contains vitamin A, K, and E, and has anti-aging properties)
- Fucoxanthin (pigment from brown algae that may protect skin from the formation of free radicals that leads to premature aging)
- Porphyridium (anti-inflammatory and antioxidant)
- Astaxanthin (powerful antioxidant)
- Minerals (iodine, copper, molybdate, and more) (3)
Overall, sea kelp boosts hyaluronic acid’s properties. As a serum, it is extra hydrating and suitable even for acne-prone and oily skin. The addition of sea kelp upgrades the classic hyaluronic acid serum due to its ability to neutralize free radicals caused by exposure to UV during the day, making it the perfect serum to apply in the morning to boost your UV protection and fight the photo-aging scourge.
Zatoru Essentials is keeping it real: beauty is a right and not an overpriced dream.
