About a year and a half ago, I was introduced to a skincare line that was refreshingly different than other products I have used in the past. It’s the Hylunia line ( My skin LOVES these products. If you have sensitive skin and you enjoy using organic products, I would recommend Hylunia.


“In 1988, Hylunia was the first and only company to base an entire skin care product line around the proven properties of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the most powerful humectant known.   Holding 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid is a natural key component of the dermis. It effectively binds water to cells and is responsible for the elasticity and resiliency of the skin. According to Dr. Brian Jegasothy,  M.D., former Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Pittsburgh: ‘Hyaluronic Acid is possibly the most effective in its water retention properties than glycerin, sorbitol, collagen, etc. In addition, its ability to associate with lipids in skin surface membranes greatly enhances its ability to deliver its retained water and enriches its property by reducing transepidermal water loss. Thus the characteristics of Hyalunronic Acid are vital ingredients in a skin care line for its exceptional efficacy.’ In addition to using the highest pharmaceutical concentration of Hyaluronic Acid available, Hylunia also utilizes the sea plant Padina Pavonica to assist the body’s natural hyaluronic acid production and epidermal cohesion.”
