Hyaluronic Acid might be a bit of a mouthful (it’s also known as HA) but it’s the most natural thing. It can be found in algae, molluscs and even humans! This clear, gooey carbohydrate helps keep our body together while it works hard to lubricate our joints and hold moisture in our skin. As we age, our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid levels start to decrease.
The reason this sugary miracle goo is so well-loved by fans is that it really pulls its own weight in combatting the dreaded sag. In fact, it can retain almost 1000-times its own weight in water! This is why it instantly smooths and refreshes when applied topically. Previously, science faced the challenge of HA molecules being too large to penetrate the skin’s surface, but new formulas have overcome this.
At Wendy Christina, we’ve harvested Mother Nature’s beauty secrets with softly-treading science. Our products help you to incorporate hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine. So, we help nature do its job better and keep your skin looking refreshed, youthful and firm.
Mother Nature’s best moisture retention substance!

5. Rapid hydration results
6. Rejuvenates sun damaged skin
7. Improves the elastoviscosity of your skin tissue
The Dual Effect
We feature hyaluronic acid in Wendy Christina products as an active anti-ageing formula because of its unbeatable dual effect. Firstly, it provides a protective barrier to the outmost layer of the skin. This helps prevent moisture loss and dehydration, and dryness due to the wind or harsh weather. Then, it works its deeper magic by working on conditioning the skin, by restoring youthful plumpness and filling out wrinkles and fine lines.
The main reason for our skin’s ageing and dehydration is mainly exposure to UV radiation. This results in loss of elasticity, wrinkles and an overall lacklustre appearance. With our body also slowing down the natural production of hyaluronic acid as we age, the effect on our face and body is visible. By applying it topically to the skin, we can treat UV light-induced wrinkles by assisting the skin to retain more moisture and help our skin rejuvenate.
