Naturally found in our body especially in the joints and skin, hyaluronic acid gives our skin its youthful plumpness and hair its sheen and suppleness. It is often used as the active ingredient for anti-ageing skincare products for humans. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and thus acts as a water reservoir for the skin and hair cells to prevent dryness and dehydration.
The most effective hyaluronic acid is the one with the lowest molecular weight (daltons) which penetrates deeper into the cells of skin and hair. The deeper hyaluronic acid goes into the skin/fur, the better the results, resulting in skin which is softer, plumper in texture, and fur which is well hydrated with improved sheen.
The hyaluronic acid we use is food-grade, with ultra-low Da (daltons), so as to be most effective at penetrating and deeply hydrating the skin and fur of our furry companions. In fact, the quality of hyaluronic acid we use is found in facial serums and creams of top cosmetic products for humans.
Silk Amino Proteins
An active ingredient of many hair treatments, silk amino proteins offers many benefits, the main one being to restore and rebuild the keratin of fur, reviving its natural strength, moisture and silkiness. Fur is composed of 95% keratin, a fibrous and helical protein and which gives fur its main structure and strength.
This fur revival is achieved through the silk protein’s ability to simultaneously boost the tensile strength of fur, whilst endowing it with an additional layer of protection as it fill damaged gaps in the outer fur cuticle, which is its protective layer. Thanks to silk protein’s ability to repair damaged fur through increased keratin production and the incredible amount of water it can retain, it is as such able to boost both fur elasticity, volume, texture, and moisture.
Dull fur is typically a result of damage from too much sun exposure from UVA and UVB rays which oxidize the melanin, which causes fur to lose shine and feel dry. Silk proteins rebuilds the bonds that give fur shine and lay down broken cuticles to seal in the nutrients.
The Silk Amino Proteins we use is food-grade, and Ultra-low molecular weight (daltons), so as to have the most effective penetration of fur to deliver the hydration and repair they require. With improved elasticity, texture, and protection from the silk proteins in our Luxe Pets formulations, they make fur easier to manage and to groom naturally.
