Hyaluronic Acid vs. Botanical Hyaluronic Acid

hyaluronic acid from rooster combs, botanical hyaluronic acid, what's the difference?

Hyaluronic Acid vs. Botanical Hyaluronic Acid
Do you know the difference?

Up until the late 1990’s, the only way of deriving Hyaluronic Acid was to get it from animal-based sources, such as rooster combs. For obvious reasons, this is less than ideal. Some skincare manufacturers still use this type in their serums, creams, and injections.

When shopping for skincare, be sure to check the back label of any skincare product to make sure the hyaluronic acid is botanically sourced. If the product is inexpensive, chances are they may still be using an animal-based source of hyaluronic acid.

What you should know about Hyaluronic Acid and your skin--

All of us are born with a certain amount of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our skin. As we age, our levels start to decline, which results in skin that wrinkles and sags.

Hyaluronic Acid mainly functions as a humectant, a water-attracting substance that delivers water to the skin's surface. Hyaluronic Acid doesn’t create water, but rather pulls water either from the atmosphere or from deep within the skin to hydrate the outermost layer of skin. The moisture-binding properties of Hyaluronic Acid and its ability to retain water make it a go-to ingredient in highly moisturizing, anti-aging, skincare products.

Cruelty-free, botanical hyaluronic acid found in Allure Plant Stem Cell Elixir is derived from a plant called Cassia Angustifolia (Senna alexandria) and is an essential component for our skin's elasticity and structure. Properly hydrated skin feels soft and looks plump and firm. It is collagen that gives our skin its firmness, but it is the Hyaluronic Acid that nourishes & hydrates the collagen.

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
