If the word acid makes you think of things that are caustic to the skin, you might be surprised to learn that your skin, vagina, connective tissues, and eyeballs all contain hyaluronic acid—a mildly acidic sugar molecule.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body’s juicy places, and is responsible for keeping tissues hydrated and supple. In fact, hyaluronic acid can retain up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, which is one way it keeps skin plump and elastic.
Buuuuut … hyaluronic acid naturally decreases with age. Yep, we literally start to dry out. It’s no wonder hyaluronic acid has become a rockstar of the skincare industry, showing up everywhere from injectable fillers to face serums, lipsticks, and night creams.
Hyaluronic acid is so good at rehydrating tissues and drawing moisture, it seems only natural that it belongs in intimate moisturizers, as well. After all, hyaluronic acid is an important component of vaginal lubrication. And as one of our fans, @mommydearestinc, pointed out, “people are all about hyaluronic acid for their faces, and your face doesn’t even give you orgasms.” Too true.
After nearly two years of careful research and testing, we formulated two intimate products rich in hyaluronic acid and a bevy of nourishing botanicals—an everyday elixir called Nourish and a sexy serum called Romp. Both use hyaluronic acid to enhance and increase your natural intimate moisture. Our menopausal and post menopausal fans particularly love the hydrating dose of hyaluronic acid, both before/during sex and as a daily moisturizer.
