The truth about Hyaluronic Acid and the role in Skin Hydration

The truth about Hyaluronic Acid and the role in Skin Hydration

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance produced by your body and can be found in your eyes, joints, and skin. However, as with Collagen, the natural production does decrease with age.

It has been used in skin care for several years and has only relatively recently been approved in Australia for internal consumption. What is amazing about it is that it can hold up to 1000 times it is weight in water and has been a proven winner in topical beauty products for several years.

Hyaluronic Acid in supplements is always hydrolysed in ingestible form. Through the hydrolysed form, it is in smaller particles that allows for efficient absorption. This is the same principle of hydrolysed collagen. Hyaluronic Acid can effectively come in a form known as sodium hyaluronate. This is a bioavailable form of Hyaluronic Acid that has numerous benefits.

Introducing Life Botanics Hyaluronic Acid + Skin Hydration

We wanted to make premium TGA listed vitamins available to everyone, not just those who could afford the inflated prices.

In the previous blog, we have established the scientific credentials of Life Botanics

At Life Botanics, the team have significant combined experience in the TGA, product development, marketing, sales, and distribution of these type of products on a local and global basis. Our motivation is to give back to communities that have given to us over the years. We live normal family lives and what is important to us is our consumers, not the likes on Instagram.

Not to mention we own our own factory which is TGA accredited and create jobs in rural Australia.

We have covered some of our science in previous blogs and the role of the TGA in regulating the vitamin and supplement market.

However, if you want facts and evidence, not emotion around Life Botanics you must look no further than our Hyaluronic Acid + Skin Hydration, which is not a product offered by JS Health.

We developed this, as with our other products in our NPD facility, which is fully owned and employs qualified nutritionists and product development experts. We are a fully integrated business from Research and Development, manufacturing, distribution, and sales, and marketing. We are certainly unusual for an Australian vitamin and supplement business that in the majority, outsources manufacturing.
