In less-technical terms, hyaluronic acid is a molecule that retains high amounts of water and serves as an important aid in joint and skin support. It is a key factor for preserving tissue hydration, and as one of the most hydrophilic (“water-loving”) molecules in nature, it can be described as “nature’s moisturizer.”* (1-3)
What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For Our Skin?*
Many topical moisturizers contain hyaluronic acid because it does a great job binding to water molecules on the skin and keeping them close, supporting the skin barrier and hydrating the skin’s cells. When taken orally as a supplement, like the Hyabest® in HyaCera™, hyaluronic acid, supports skin hydration, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. (4-6) The hyaluronic acid benefits specific to HyaCera™ are worth noting, too. HyaCera™ is made with Hyabest® to help support moisturized, glowing skin and Hyabest® may also help promote skin suppleness. Did we mention that Hyabest® hyaluronic acid also helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines? That’s enough to rethink your whole skincare routine!*
Where Does Hyaluronic Acid Come From?
At Ritual, all our products are Made Traceable®, which means that we’re transparent about how and where we source† our ingredients so you can feel confident in the journey of our products, and HyaCera™ is no different. Some forms of commercially available hyaluronic acid are derived from animal sources, like rooster combs, or the frilly red part on top of the rooster’s head (3)—not exactly the first thing we’d want to reach for in our morning routine. The hyaluronic acid found in HyaCera™, however, is vegan, derived from a biofermentation process, (good news for those who prefer a plant-based lifestyle) as well as gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, non-GMO, and free from artificial coloration.

Now that you’ve got the basics of hyaluronic acid benefits down, we can get into the specifics of the clinically studied ingredient, Hyabest®.*
Clinically shown to help support hydrated skin that glows, Hyabest® is a bio-fermented, lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid. The biological effects of hyaluronic acid depend on its molecular weight (1,3), and you’ll find varying molecular weights in different cosmetics and dietary supplements. Hyabest® hyaluronic acid is a low molecular weight that has been clinically studied to support the promotion of glowing, moisturized skin. You can feel confident in daily skin hydration with Hyabest® after 90 days of daily use.*
Skin hydration is an important part of skin health, and hyaluronic acid is one of our skin’s best allies. We think you deserve to know where your skincare ingredients come from, including and especially the one we include in our product, like Hyabest® hyaluronic acid. If you’re ready to enhance your skincare routine from the inside out with a dose of daily skin hydration, HyaCera™ puts the fiiiiiiiine back into lines.*
