Hyaluronic acid

100% pure

Hydration being at the heart of La Maison Clayton Shagal's philosophy, it was essential for our chemists to do research and development on this molecule with hyper-hydrating properties in order to find the most effective formulation to maximize the effects of its properties.

Acting as a support for collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is naturally omnipresent in the body. It is found mainly in the dermis, in the extracellular matrix, where it contributes to cell proliferation and skin stability, a particularly important vocation for sensitive and dehydrated skin.

  • Like collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is essential for maintaining the structure of the layers of the skin. Collagen is an important moisturizer that accelerates skin regeneration, while elastin gives skin firmness while reducing redness. As for hyaluronic acid, it works in combination with collagen and elastin and provides moisture to nourish and hydrate the skin.

    It has an intense moisturizing power retaining water in the tissues like a sponge. The hyaluronic acid molecule can bind and attract up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid combines with water and fills the intercellular spaces, which contributes to its exceptional moisturizing power.

  • It plays an important role in the healing of the skin and in the protection against UV rays through its antioxidant action.

    Recognized in aesthetics for its moisturizing, plumping and redensifying properties, it is also recognized in medicine for its restorative properties.

  • The passage of time

    Hyaluronic acid is used to maintain the hydration of the skin and contributes to its tone.

    During skin aging, we observe a gradual disappearance of hyaluronic acid in the epidermis while it remains present in the dermis. However, its quality and quantity in the dermis are reduced with age. As a result, the skin dries out, becomes fragile and the first wrinkles appear. Gradually the tissues relax and the face becomes hollow.

    Already, at the age of 20, our body begins to reduce its production of hyaluronic acid. Around the age of 50, this production is reduced by half.

  • The Clayton Shagal Hyaluronic Acid difference

    CLAYTON SHAGAL Hyaluronic Acids have the highest level of purity available on the market.

    They come from a biotechnological source (natural fermentation), a process which consists in letting yeasts ferment which instantly produce 100% pure hyaluronic acid.

    Maison Clayton Shagal has been using this molecule, which has been found in some of our creams for several years. But after three years of intensive research and development, our chemists have created a Hyaluronic Acid Serum composed of the synergy of three (3) types of hyaluronic acid for complete and optimal hydration. Having the property of retaining water in all layers of the skin, the CLAYTON SHAGAL Serum offers incomparable effectiveness.

The results

CLAYTON SHAGAL Hyaluronic Acids help restore the skin's natural resistance and protect it from dehydration.

Low molecular weight acid: penetrates the dermis and contributes to cell renewal by increasing our fibroblasts. It provides firmness, intense deep hydration and a filling effect.

Medium molecular weight acid: penetrates to the basal barrier, between the dermis and the epidermis. It acts as an antioxidant and strengthens the epidermal barrier, actively protecting the skin against external aggressions (free radicals) responsible for skin ageing.

High molecular weight acid: penetrates all the stratum corneum of the epidermis forming a reservoir of water there. It preserves hydration and improves the texture of the skin.

All in all, CLAYTON SHAGAL Hyaluronic Acids provide intense and lasting hydration in depth and on the surface for all skin types, restore a plump and natural appearance to the skin and provide an immediate filling effect on the surface. This results in long-lasting beauty of the skin so that it becomes softer, smoother and with more tone.
