Typically, beauty products include a section on their label that lists all of the ingredients that are used in the making of the product. To many people this list means absolutely nothing because all of the ingredients are listed with their scientific name with no explanation as to what it is or what it is for. Of course, the list varies from product to product, but there is one ingredient that is found in many different types of beauty products.
That ingredient is hyaluronic acid. This is used for three different reasons; it is one of the best moisturizers, it is not cheap, but it can be used on even the most sensitive of skin.

Types of Hyaluronic Acid Serums
