Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Finally, I am back with new formula after such long time. I have been very busy with works as we are approaching year end. Anyways, I wanted to show you how super easy and simple it is to formulate hyaluronic acid serum. 

Hyaluronic acid is natural substance found on body’s connectivity tissues which make it key molecule for skin moisture. It has unique capability in retaining water and keeps our skin hydrated and plump. The ability to bind water to collagen and trap it in our skin make this product a must have serum. 

1% of hyaluronic acid powder

You might be thinking that this serum is super expensive. To your surprise, this serum is not as expensive as what you were thinking especially if you could get the raw ingredients. I bought mine for AUD20.90 for 10 grams. If you formulated 1% pure hyaluronic acid serum of 100ml, then you can used up the raw ingredients until 10 bottles. Pretty cheap 🙂

Note: Most of the skincare available in market is using 0.1-0.2% hyaluronic acid. I do feel hyaluronic acid powder is versatile as I can add them to any of my formula. It does bring differences even if I only use 0.1%. 

I formulated my hyaluronic acid serum with panthenol. Similar to hyaluronic acid, Panthenol has the ability to attract moisture and retain hydration. Panthenol and hyaluronic acid are humectant which can improve skin moisture. Both of them delivery boost of hydration to skin. 

Are you ready to formulate this simple hydrating serum?
