hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate)  

Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a beloved beauty ingredient and its likely its in one of your products used in your daily anti-ageing routine. Its an humectant that can hold 1,000 times its weight in water and therefore is a “water-loving ingredient that draws moisture into the stratum corneum, the top layer of skin, whether through the environment or through the deeper layer of skin (the dermis). Hyaluronic acid prevents water from evaporating quickly by binding it to the internal structures of the skin. Hyaluronic acid often eschews the need for the inclusion of glycerin, which may cause irritation or allergic reaction. Its used in our Beret Condom with Hyaluronic Acid as a substitute for silicone oil as a lubricant. Its water-based, non sticky and its pH is more closely matched to the acidic vagina therefore ensuring minimal flora disruption and maximum moisture. Please go check our our Le Journal article titled Hyaluronic Acid, hydration for faces and other places for an in depth dive into HA and why we use this breakthrough ingredient in our condoms and keep an eye our for further product development.
