Let's chat about sodium hyaluronate, also known as the salt form of hyaluronic acid and a humectant. It's a skincare superstar that's been making waves. We'll break down the science behind it, explain why it's so good for your skin, and reveal where you can find it in our products. Here at TEMPLESPA, we're all about the fusion of science-led ingredients with Mediterranean botanicals, which is why our products are packed with this skin-loving compound for brilliant benefits.


The Nitty-Gritty on Sodium Hyaluronate

So, what does sodium hyaluronate do to your skin? It's a key player in skincare, included in our fab TEMPLESPA products. Here's a quick science lesson: Sodium hyaluronate is the salt form of hyaluronic acid, so naturally they have very similar hydrating properties. It's super-moisturising, therefore tackles dehydration and dry skin with ease. Translation? Plumper, younger-looking skin. 

Because we categorise sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronic acid as humectants, this essentially means it’s pulling water from the air to help retain moisture in your skin. And because it's small enough to penetrate deeper skin layers, the hydration goes beyond surface level to help improve new future skin cells, therefore helping to improve your skin barrier for long-term results. Our sodium hyaluronate-rich TEMPLESPA products are designed to deeply nourish and revitalise your skin.

Why Your Skin Will Love Sodium Hyaluronate

Sodium hyaluronate is a hydration hero, beloved for its ability to retain moisture. It's basically a big drink of water for your skin. You might ask, is sodium hyaluronate the same thing as hyaluronic acid? Although lesser known, sodium hyaluronate has smaller molecules, so it can reach deeper layers of the skin for longer-lasting hydration. A great way to use sodium hyaluronate in your skincare routine is in the form of a serum, as these highly concentrated blends are perfect for targeting specific skin concerns.

Benefits and Side Effects: What You Need to Know

So, why is sodium hyaluronate for the skin so great? It's a hydration powerhouse that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Plus, it's a fab antioxidant and has a calming effect on the skin. The added hydration also helps soften and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as the skin appears plumper and overall more hydrated. It is suitable for all skin types and can be used regularly in your skincare routine.

Why not try a mask?

If we said you could get glowing and plumper skin in one, would you believe us? MOST REVEALING Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel delivers on both.

This clever ingredient also helps to lock-in moisture so skin is left soft, smooth and glowing.
