The powerful ingredient is now a part of science-backed beauty formulation. The antioxidant-rich active is known for multiple proven benefits. It’s largely used in serums, creams, face oils etc. and prevents signs of ageing, brightens skin, reduces inflammation, decreases the appearance of pores, and hyperpigmentation.

Hyaluronic Acid


Suffering from the bane of dull and dry skin? Hyaluronic acid is the magic potion that locks moisture and keeps skin hydrated. The active ingredient draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere and gives a supple, plumping effect. Although hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, its level depletes with age leading to dryness and early signs of ageing. Hyaluronic acid enriched serums, creams, face wash etc. are just the products you want to stock for topical hydration.
