Revive dehydrated or dull skin with skin-quenching Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This sumptuous cream deeply hydrates thanks to HA’s moisture-binding properties, while the peptide enriched formula helps strengthen skin’s natural moisture barrier. HA Rich Restorative Moisturizer aids in smoothing, softening and improving the skin’s appearance. Specially formulated to help nourish and fortify skin against the signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles and dryness, while leaving skin with a dewy glow.
The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronan or hyaluronic acid (HA), a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) with a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. Hyaluronic acid binds up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
Skin relies critically on these HA-bound water molecules in the dermis and stratum corneum for proper hydration. However, levels of HA naturally present in the skin decrease with each passing year, resulting in dermal dehydration and wrinkle formation, a process accelerated by free radicals. 
Peptides mimic the structure of a growth factor and are made from strings of amino acids that are joined together. When peptides connect with each other, they form polypeptides, which are the backbones of proteins found throughout the body. Through topical application, polypeptides have the ability to support collagen health and encourage healthy skin cell turnover.
Peptides aid in strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier and protecting against the effects of environmental damage and aging. Peptides that support keratin can increase the resiliency of skin and provide moisture to the skin.
HA can be used in skin care to replenish lost moisture due to environmental factors and aging. When applied to the surface of the skin, hyaluronic acid can reduce wrinkles, redness and dermatitis.[3,4,5]
Peptides aid in reducing and preventing lines and wrinkles by helping the skin to actively generate new cells. An increase in cellular turnover can also help to refine texture and brighten the skin’s appearance.
The peptides in the Skin Chemistry formulas are encapsulated with nanosome technology and have been selected specifically due to optimized molecular size which helps them to pass through the lipid barrier of the skin and encourage absorption.
