What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gooey substance that your body naturally produces. The majority of it is found in your skin, connective tissue, and eyes.
What Does It Do?
The primary function of hyaluronic acid is to retain water, keeping your tissues moist and well lubricated. Because of its ability to retain water (up to 1000 times its weight in water!), it keeps our skin hydrated and plump. Our skin loses hyaluronic acid as we age and needs to be replenished. Rather than inject hyaluronic acid into the skin with a needle, Dr. Macrene has spent decades working on delivery of hyaluronic acid topically throughout the years regardless of your age in order to maintain high levels.
How is the Hyaluronic Acid in MACRENE actives Different?
The three key structural components of the deeper layer of skin are collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. To get a full dermal structure, you need each of these three key skin constituents. "With MACRENE actives, I have systematically included ingredients to target each of these three essential skin constituent categories that keep skin plush and smooth,” informs Dr. Macrene.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve as signaling molecules.
Peptides have been shown to boost the levels of these key skin components.
“I’ve microencapsulated hyaluronic acid for delivery into the skin which is the primary determining factor as to whether a skin cream or lip product works," says Dr. Macrene.
Dr. Macrene shares the science behind the High Performance Lip Filler — it contains 20 organic plant oils, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants that heal and smooth chapped lips while simultaneously filling and plumping for boosted color and injection-free plushness.
