I received another product from OZ Naturals and have been testing it's effectiveness on my skin for the last week. Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin C claims to plump and hydrate dry and dull skin. It assists in balancing the moisture levels of your skin and is said to diminish fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Every person has Hyaluronic Acid (INCI: sodium hyaluronate), because it is found in the skin – and a significant contributor of cell growth. It is also found in the connective tissue of many parts of the body, where it performs cushioning and lubricating functions. Hyaluronic acid can absorb a lot of moisture, sort of like a sponge would. This ability makes it vital for our tissues to hold moisture. Without it we shrivel up and with a good supply our skin looks plump.
How is Hyaluronic Acid Made?
Hyaluronic acid is sourced either the vegan way or from a rooster's comb. In my research I found out that these poor roosters are raised just so that their combs get huge. Then they are slaughtered, the comb removed, frozen and then thawed and ground into a white powder called Hyaluronic Acid. I was shocked when I read that, until I learned that the Japanese had found a way to utilize plant cells to derive the acid through a bio fermentation process. In 2009 a US Patent was granted and now we can enjoy a vegan formula. OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum is Vegan and organic.
What ingredients does a good Hyaluronic Acid have?
There is no such thing as 100% Hyaluronic Acid, because that would mean that you are getting nothing but dry powder. The powder has to be combined with a liquid to make it into a serum. Inferior products have water as their binding agent, however better brands will use organic Aloe.
It's best to use a Hyaluronic Acid that is just the right consistency, so that the serum can be easily absorbed by your skin. Stay clear of brands that list paraben, fragrance and/ or coloring as their ingredients. Fortunately OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum is 72% organic and vegan. Products are cruelty-free, paraben free, sulfate free, mineral oil free, lanolin free and gluten free.
APPLYING HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
Hyaluronic Acid Serum needs to be applied to damp skin. I have washed my face, patted it somewhat dry and applied the clear, slightly thick gel on my forehead and around my eyes, taking care not to get any of it in my eyes. The gel can also be mixed in with your toner and since it is absorbed quickly, can be used daily under your normal make-up. The serum feels so light that I really did not notice having anything extra on my face. Should you feel that your skin feels slightly tight, make sure that your face is more damp the next time you apply the serum. The skin pores need to absorb moisture and not seal it out.
So does it work?
Since I have been using Vitamin C serums daily, my skin is in tip top shape at the moment. However, I wanted to see if the fine lines around my eyes and forehead could be smoothed out. After a week my face looks very hydrated and fine lines seem to be less apparent than before. I think I will need another week to really be able to tell a major difference.
