Hyaluronic Acid

High on a Mountaintop

Peak Scents calls the base of the San Francisco mountain range home. At 7,000 feet elevation, our air is thin and dry, which in turn can wreak havoc on fragile skin. In such a severe climate, we needed a solution that was gentle yet effective in restoring moisture to our delicate skin. Through careful inquiry and discovery, we have found that hyaluronic acid is the key ingredient to keep skin moisturized and healthy.

 

Not All HA is Created Equal

Hyaluronic Acid or HA is a powerful polysaccharide that is found naturally in our bodies. It is what helps lubricate our joints and stimulates the production of collagen in our skin. Originally used an injectable, modern HA’s have a small enough molecular size to penetrate the skin’s outer layers resulting in hydrated skin. These impressive little molecules can hold up to 100 times their weight in water, thus helping to plump and saturate the skin with moisture. Our HA is 100% vegan and cruelty-free so that you can rest assured that your skin’s health is not putting animals’ at risk.

 

What Can HA Do for You?

HA is a powerful skincare ingredient at any age. By restoring moisture, it soothes dry skin, promotes the production of collagen helping to prevent signs of aging such as sagging, and wrinkling. Additionally, HA helps to plump the skin, resulting in reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • I would like to receive any coupons or discount you might have.
    Thank you for such awesome products. I ordered night rose night cream instead of everyday face cream, so next month I’ll work that one into my budget.
