The hyaluronic acid is a substance that exists naturally in our body. It is found in various tissues such as skin, cartilage or in the connective tissue of the spine.

Our body makes itself its hyaluronic acid, although over the years lost the power to do so in such quantities. This causes the skin and other tissues where it comes to age and deteriorate, since a low level of hyaluronic acid means that the tissues lose their capacity to retain water. In the case of skin, that produces wrinkles, sagging and loss of firmness.
