Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid for Skin


Hydration and the skin’s ability to retain water is a key element in younger looking skin. Also known as Hyaluronan, Hyaluronate or HA, Hyaluronic Acid is the pivotal molecule involved in skin moisture.

Hyaluronic Acid is produced naturally by your body and has the unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. This powerful ingredient makes sure your skin has enough moisture and volume in the epidermis (the top layer), and it has an incredibly high water-binding capacity.


Did you know that Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water? That’s some seriously impressive plumping power!


Hyaluronic Acid is one of NIVEA’S top anti-ageing ingredients. When used in a topical cream or lotion, this potent ingredient gives your skin the ultimate moisture boost – and who doesn’t love a bit of hydration?

Firmer Skin

In skin, Hyaluronic Acid is known to increase our cells’ ability to bind water, giving our skin a plumper and firmer appearance. Imagine a baby’s beautiful skin and how it always looks so plump and smooth - Hyaluronic Acid has a lot to do with that. Babies are born with high levels of the moisture-filled acid giving them that soft and firm feel.



Hyaluronic Acid is also a skin hydrating bioactive ingredient, which binds large quantities of water together to aid in skin repair. It has the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin.


Reduce Signs of Aging

When applied to the skin through cosmetics and moisturisers, it strengthens the outer layers of the skin to create a healthy barrier, for softer, younger, firmer and more plumped up skin. A key ingredient in NIVEA’s Cellular Anti Age range, Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles.


Healthy Cells

Of equal importance is Hyaluronic Acid’s ability to extract waste from cells, regardless of the level of blood circulation, helping to keep our cells healthy and functioning at optimum levels.

What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For Skin



Levels of Hyaluronic Acid decrease in our bodies as we age. Skin slowly loses water, has less firmness and its structure softens. It is estimated that by the time we reach our mid-40’s, the production of Hyaluronic Acid is roughly half of what the body requires for adequate moisture retention.


To replenish Hyaluronic Acid lost through aging, and to keep your skin firm, hydrated and looking younger, we recommend daily use of an anti-aging cream or serum.

With daily use, the NIVEA Cellular Hyaluron Filler Day Cream plumps your skin and activates the skin cells own production of hyaluronic acid and collagen. The SPF15 and UVA/UVB protection system helps to protect skin through the day from UV-induced ageing, cell damage and age spots.

The NIVEA Cellular Hyaluron Filler Night Cream has been specially developed to support the skin's own ability to improve its volume during the night, when its self-regenerating capacity peaks. Instantly and with regular use, skin volume is increased and contours are refined.

The NIVEA Cellular Hyaluron Filler Anti-Age Eye Cream activates the skin cells to produce their own hyaluronic acid and collagen. Perfect for the delicate area, wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes appear visibly reduced.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
