With so many ingredients out there claiming to help ‘turn back the time’ on facial skin, it’s hard to know which ingredient is better over another. Collagen is a recognised ingredient that will help keep skin looking more youthful because scientifically we know that collagen is needed for skin to stay firm. So if we lose collagen we lose skin firmness, thus no-one is left confused by the importance and effectiveness of this particular ingredient. But there are many others, one of which is Hyaluronic Acid (HA). So what is HA and why is it effective in the world of anti-aging?
Hyaluronic Acid actually occurs naturally in the body and is one of the main components of the tissue that provides structural support to cells including skin cells. HA is known to lock-in skin’s moisture – in fact, youthful skin is naturally rich in HA hence why in our late teens, early 20’s we look fresh-faced and full of youth.
But as we get older, skin moisture levels reduce as does the natural level of Hyaluronic acid in our body’s, which results in a loss of skin elasticity and herein begins the reveal of visible signs of ageing skin.
Hyaluronic acid is so effective in anti-ageing skin care because it has a unique ability to lock in moisture (approximately 1000ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid). It has been scientifically proven that HA supplementation increases skin moisture, skin smoothness and amelioration of wrinkles – you can’t argue with scientific facts.
Hyaluronic Acid also has a role in the body’s making of collagen (which as previously mentioned is a renowned component in anti-ageing skin care). Improving collagen levels in the body helps keep skin supple. Hyaluronic acid helps boost collagen production, as well as helping retain skin moisture which is why it’s fast becoming one of the most highly sort after ingredients in anti-ageing skin care. Skin with increased levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid is suppler as well as resistant to fine lines and wrinkles.

Science has found that by supplementing with HA and collagen, skin is suppler & firmer, and Jivesse Capsules aim to help you achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin, working from the inside – out.
