What is vegan hyaluronic acid?

The concept of hyaluronic acid is very popular in the cosmetics market. It is something that appeals to all buyers. Sometimes, such is the marketing campaign behind a label that we forget about other very good labels.

Because, although hyaluronic acid is a very powerful active ingredient, it is not a panacea. The success of an effective cosmetic lies in its combination, elaboration and production process.

Even so, today we would like to talk to you about this concept that everyone is talking about, in its vegan version in natural cosmetics. Yes, today we want to explain what vegan hyaluronic acid is and what it does for your skin.

Vegan hyaluronic acid is a vegetable acid obtained from natural elements, such as seeds, through a fermentation process.

We are all capable of producing hyaluronic acid, a component that keeps our skin firm, hydrated and with a juicy texture. It is estimated that the human being has between 10 to 15gr of hyaluronic acid in the body, distributed in the humor of the eye, the synovial fluid of the joints, the skeletal tissue…

However, as time goes by, its production decreases. For this reason, many of us have incorporated hyaluronic acid into our cosmetics. To take care of your skin over time.

vegan hyaluronic acid

In the market you can find two different types:

  • conventional hyaluronic acid, which is derived from animals,
  • vegan hyaluronic acid, which comes from plants.

The properties are different; and so is the energy. While conventional hyaluronic acid brings with it all the toxic compounds that have been used to raise livestock, vegan hyaluronic acid offers a pure, gentle energy taken directly from nature. And we already know that the more pure, natural and essential the ingredient, the more powerful its protective and regenerative effect.

Properties of vegan hyaluronic acid

It is important to understand that the efficacy of vegan hyaluronic acid depends largely on its molecular weight.

High molecular weight hyaluronic acid:

  • has a long-lasting moisturizing effect,
  • improves skin elasticity and softness.

Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid:

  • helps prevent wrinkles,
  • prevents flaking, reducing pore size and thus improving skin texture and thickness.

Its high water retention capacity makes it a perfect compound for all skin types. The ideal is to find a cosmetic that contains both molecular weights to be able to benefit from all its goodness, as is the case of Saper, where we use both types.

In addition, our Hyaluronic Acid comes from one of the best manufacturers in the world, in South Korea. There are many manufacturers in Asia and in China especially, but the best are in Korea.

Vegan hyaluronic acid creams

Something important when choosing your creams with hyaluronic acid is to know its ingredients, but also its origin. When we buy vegan cosmetics, we make sure that there is no animal cruelty behind them.

Because if we use conventional cosmetics made with animal products, we are not only participating in a market where abuse and overexploitation often go hand in hand, but in addition to placing on our skin all the ingredients present in the product, we will also be giving it everything that has been necessary to cultivate those ingredients (pesticides, herbicides, animal feed, hormones…).

Saper organic cosmetics are all handcrafted, sustainable, not tested on animals and of the highest quality. We elaborate them with love and attention in our private laboratory, witnessing the whole process of creation and production.
