Hyaluronic Acid - Klaire labs

Hyaluronic acid is a natural lubricating component of skin tissue, joint fluid, eye fluid, and other connective tissues throughout the body. Water readily binds to hyaluronic acid, forming a jelly-like substance that fills the spaces between collagen and elastin. This hydrates the skin by holding in water. It also acts as a cushioning and lubricating agent in synovial fluid surrounding joints, thus protecting against mechanical friction.
