All about the science

AHC skincare products are infused with potent ingredients using scientific accuracy. As one of our hero ranges for intense hydration and beautiful glass-like skin, Aqualuronic formulas are no exception. This range has been specially developed to provide intense hydration and lock in moisture, leaving skin looking healthy, with a youthful glow. The serum alone is clinically proven to increase skin hydration by 89% instantly.

How does it work?

Every product in the range contains a winning combination of Triple Hyaluronic Acid and Aqua Ceramide Complex.

Let’s delve deeper into the science behind this K-beauty formula. Unlike regular hyaluronic acid, Triple Hyaluronic Acid blends low, medium and high molecular weights.

The low and medium weights help to increase absorption to the skin*, while the high weight creates a moisture-retaining barrier. Hyaluronic acid works by pulling and retaining moisture of up to 1000 times its weight, so that’s a serious hit of hydration for your skin.

As we’ve mentioned, the Aqualuronic serum is also infused with an Aqua Ceramide Complex. This ceramide blend combines three marine ingredients and three ceramides (NS, NP and AP). These lipid molecules (like oils and fats) are naturally occurring components in the body, and a major component of our skin structure – being super-effective at retaining moisture in the skin's barrier. Over time, their natural levels deplete (just like hyaluronic acid) so applying a serum with ceramides gives your skin’s protective barrier a strengthening boost, increasing the ceramide levels within your skin.

Aqualuronic’s combination of hyaluronic acid, ceramides and mineral-rich French sea water works to replenish skin energy and helps fortify the moisture barrier.
