Hail to the Hyaluronic Acid

hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the body; it is one reason that young people have smooth, plump skin. In fact, it binds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, thereby providing continuous moisture to the skin.

Unfortunately, Hyaluronic Acid depletes as we age.

As a skin care ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid is celebrated for its intensely hydrating properties. It is often considered the holy grail of humectants—it attracts moisture into the skin to help impart a firmer, more supple appearance.

Not to boast, but we do have quite a few products that contain this powerhouse moisture-binding ingredient:

Hyaluronic Moisturizer (SPF-15)
Hyaluronic Day Cream
Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin C
Hyaluronic Eye Cream
Hydrating Moisturizer with Biocare & Hyaluronic Acid
Cellufirm Drops
Vitamin C Serum
Vitacel Moist Cream
Cream X
Hydrating Hand Cream

With any of these MB Hyaluronic Acid-containing gems, your skin is one step closer to being plump and smooth!

  1. I do love the vitamin C serum but this seems like it may be a winter alternative?

    • Hi Jennifer!

      You can certainly use our Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin C in the winter and our Vitamin C Serum during the rest of the year. But it all depends on your skin type. If you have more oily skin, your best bet is to just stick with the Vitamin C Serum all year round :)

  2. What’s the difference between the vitamin C serum and the Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin “C” ? Do they both do the same-ish job? Which ones better?

    • Hi Ash!

      Great question! The Vitamin C Serum has more Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) than the Hyaluronic Emulsion. Moreover, the Hyaluronic Emulsion is more suitable for combination to dry skin types, whereas the Vitamin C Serum is suitable for all skin types. I hope this helps! :)

  4. Hi LeeAnn
    I’m curious what products you would recommend for using on the neck area. Aging skin wrinkles and tends to be drooping. Is there a product specific to this problem?
