If you dissect this ingredient’s name, you’ll easily figure out the ingredient it’s related to: hyaluronic acid. The compound we’re talking about, sodium hyaluronate, is a smaller, more stable, water-soluble salt form of hyaluronic acid. It can penetrate further into the skin’s layers and deliver incredible amounts of water to dehydrated skin- meaning it’s even more effective than hyaluronic acid.
Benefits: Moisturization! It’s a humectant and helps to nourish and repair the skin barrier, which improves the skin's look and feel. It’s also an anti-aging ingredient because it plumps.
Skin Types: Dry skin and combination skin types gravitate towards this salt, but anyone looking for moisture can use this ingredient.
