Hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycan are names you may have seen on skin care product labels or in supplements. But other than looking like really big technical words, what are they? And why would we need them? Well hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycan are actually the same thing – a naturally occurring substance in your body that provides moisture and lubrication.
Hyaluronic acid, also known as HA or HLA, can be found in the connective tissues in our joints, in our eyes, in our blood vessels and in the dermal, or middle layer of our skin. It’s part of the network of collagen fibers and elastin in our skin that allow it to remain flexible and hydrated. In addition, they help your skin to heal and maintain its healthy look and feel. Hyaluronic acid also helps trigger the growth of new collagen fibers in our skin, contributing to its youthful appearance.
