Hyaluronic Acid has long been part of the skincare realm due to its ability to treat dry, dehydrated skin, therefore improving hydration and minimising fine lines and wrinkles. As beauty professionals, you are already well acquainted, I’m sure! Well, something new and groundbreaking has happened to HA. You can now treat the skin more effectively than ever before. Let’s start from the beginning; What exactly is Hyaluronic Acid?
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) occurs naturally in the human body – not just in the skin but also in a fluid within the eyes and joints. It’s a bit of a superhero in its ability to attract moisture and then retain it at the perfect levels for our cells. Unfortunately, as we age, the body’s production of HA decreases and the skin is less able to retain water, making it dry and thin. This eventuates with fine lines and loss of firmness. For those of us wanting to keep our skin young and perky, HA will rehydrate the skin giving it a plumper, firmer appearance. But the benefits of HA don’t stop there! It stabilises the condition of the skin and promotes skin cell renewal. As collagen is mainly made up of water, using HA can also improve collagen levels for younger-looking skin. Research also now shows that Hyaluronic Acid has anti-oxidative properties – so while it’s working on hydrating your skin, it is also protecting it from environmental factors such as sun exposure and nasty chemicals.
HA – What’s New?
Chances are, you already use products containing Hyaluronic Acid in your salon. Most brands have an HA range, knowing how effective and immediate the benefits of HA for skin are. With such a demand for healthy, nourished, younger-looking skin, it has become a skincare must-have. But up until now, all Hyaluronic Acid products have been water-based. And, as you would know, the molecular size of HA is too large to penetrate the skin. What that means is the Hyaluronic Acid often ends up remaining on the outer surface of the skin instead of penetrating deeply, only giving temporary results.
Well, all of that is about to change with 3 new products from leading skin derma-cosmeceutical brand Nimue. Hyaluronic UltraFiller, Hyaluronic Oil, and Hyaluronic Acid Super Fluid. The main point of difference is that Nimue uses an acetylated form of the hyaluronic Acid, that lasts 13 times longer in the skin in comparison to standard HA.
The technology used in Nimue’s new HA range means the molecular ingredients are perfectly sized to penetrate deeper layers of the skin and deliver to targeted areas in the skin where HA is most needed.
An innovative technology that will boost the effectiveness of HA to the skin. The oil-based products are also much more bioavailable than water-based ones, plus they are naturally highly concentrated and effective. Nimue’s HA range is absorbed deeply and retains moisture where it is most needed. Cellular turnover, as well as new cell growth, are also stimulated. The results are immediate and lasting.
But don’t just take our word for it. Clinical trials have highlighted some of the most exciting results:
The Hyaluronic Ultrafiller Serum underwent a 28-day clinical study and showed:
- Skin Hydration: Increased by 47% after 28 days of treatment
- Wrinkle Depth: Decreased by 16% after 28 days of treatment
A 24-hour study demonstrated:
- Skin Hydration: Increased by 50% after 2 hours, with a 24-hour hydrating effect.
Nimue’s HA is smarter! You and your clients will love this new range of HA. Dry and dehydrated skin will be a thing of the past, and your clients will enjoy a nourished, younger-looking skin in a short space of time.

Q: What is Hyaluronic Acid?
A: Hyaluronic Acid, often abbreviated as HA, is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies. It is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a type of molecule primarily responsible for retaining water. HA is present in various tissues and fluids, such as the skin, eyes, and connective tissues, where it plays a crucial role in maintaining hydration, lubrication, and elasticity.
Q: What are the benefits of using Hyaluronic Acid in skincare?
A: Using Hyaluronic Acid in skincare has numerous benefits. It is highly praised for its exceptional ability to retain moisture, which helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. By moisturizing the skin, it can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful complexion. Additionally, Hyaluronic Acid has soothing properties, making it suitable for sensitive or irritated skin types.
Q: How does Hyaluronic Acid work in anti-aging products?
A: Hyaluronic Acid’s anti-aging properties are mainly attributed to its moisture-retaining abilities. As we age, our skin’s natural HA levels decline, leading to dryness and loss of elasticity. By topically applying skincare products containing Hyaluronic Acid, the skin can replenish its moisture levels, improving firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It helps to restore a youthful and radiant complexion.
Q: Is Hyaluronic Acid suitable for all skin types?
A: Yes, Hyaluronic Acid is generally considered safe and suitable for all skin types. Since it is a natural component of our skin, it is well-tolerated by most individuals. Even those with sensitive or acne-prone skin can benefit from its hydrating properties without causing irritation. However, as with any skincare product, it is essential to do a patch test first, especially for those with hypersensitive skin, to ensure no adverse reactions occur.
Q: Can Hyaluronic Acid be used in combination with other skincare ingredients?
A: Absolutely! Hyaluronic Acid is highly versatile and can be combined with various skincare ingredients to enhance its benefits. It works well with other hydrating components like glycerin and ceramides to boost moisture retention. Additionally, combining Hyaluronic Acid with antioxidants like vitamin C can provide enhanced anti-aging effects and protect the skin from environmental damage. However, if you’re using a new combination of skincare products, it’s always a good idea to introduce them gradually and observe how your skin responds.
