A hydrating serum developed with dermatologists to boost skin’s moisture levels. CeraVe’s HA Serum is formulated with three beneficial active ingredients: hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and ceramides to both hydrate and seal in moisture.
Hydrating HA Serum Active Ingredients
Hyaluronic acid (HA)
is a naturally occurring substance in the connective tissue of the body and has an important role in maintaining moisture. HA is a humectant as it attracts hydration to the skin’s surface and helps the skin retain moisture.
Hyaluronic Acid Benefits
- Increases moisture content of skin
- Hydrates dry and dehydrated skin.
- Improved hydration enables skin to look healthier and plumper.
- Assists in creating supple, soft skin.
- Gentle and can be used on sensitive skin.
Hyaluronic acid has a large molecule size, so hyaluronic acid serums need to be formulated to enable optimal absorption. Sodium hyaluronate (SH) is the salt form of hyaluronic acid so it is a smaller molecule size and is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. SH is used CeraVe’s HA serum.
Hyaluronic acid serum efficacy is enhanced by adding a moisturising agent on top to seal in the moisture.
Vitamin B5 is also humectant as it is a water binding substance that pulls in and keeps moisture. It has soothing rejuvenating properties as well as assisting in promoting hydration. Additionally, some studies have shown vitamin B5 assists skin wound healing and reduces acne blemishes. B5 is a natural skin hydrator as it stabilises and reinforces the skin barrier and therefore reduces water loss.
Ceramides are lipids that are part of the epidermis (outer layer) and are essential to help skin retain moisture. Ceramides are classed as an occlusive moisturising agent as they create a barrier on the skin to prevent water loss. This occlusive ingredient in this serum also helps to lock in the hyaluronic acid into the skin.
CeraVe Innovative Skin Care
The CeraVE MVE exclusive delivery system continually slowly releases moisturising ingredients into the skin surface for all day hydration. MultiVesicular Emulsion (MVE) is a structure of “time released” spheres providing multiple phases of moisturisation, layer by layer throughout the day.
This refreshing cream serum replenishes hydration, restores the skin’s protective barrier and provides smoother, softer skin.
