Watermelon Extract: We love a cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer day and we love watermelon as a skincare ingredient. It’s really full of good-for-the-skin stuff: it contains a bunch of vitamins (A, B, C and E), mineral salts (K, Mg, Ca and Fe), amino acids citrulline and arginine and antioxidant carotenoids and phenolics. It’s especially rich in potent antioxidant, lycopene (a type of carotenoid), the cool pigment that’s responsible for the red colour of the watermelon. Studies show that watermelon extract gives significant DNA protection against UV damage. The in-vivo (made on real people) study also confirmed this and the watermelon formula showed 25% increase in skin protection compared to placebo.
Hyaluronic Acid: HA is a nice big sugar molecule from repeated subunits (polymer) that can be found naturally in our body. It’s the most dominant, and most important molecule in the liquidy stuff between our skin cells (the sciency name for it is the extracellular matrix or ECM). A 70 kg adult has about 15 g of HA in her body, and half of it is in the skin. Most of the skin HA is in the dermis (the deeper layer – about 0.5 mg/kg) but there is also some in the epidermis (the upper layer – about 0.1 mg/kg).
