Ultima Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Acid Serum – Look at the label

Ultima Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a top selling beauty product on Amazon this week. Let’s look at the label.

Hyaluronic acid, as most of you probably know, is a natural moisturizing agent capable of binding many times its own weight in water. It is a good moisturizer but it only works when it’s left on the skin. It has no sustained effect that lasts through washing.

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (note the spelling error on their original list below) is a stable form of vitamin C.  It’s a good antioxidant and can improve skin hydration and elasticity.

However, the product worries me for a couple of reasons. The fact that it’s normally almost $90 but it’s on sale for $13 seems strange. Remember – an extraordinary discount was one of the signs of counterfeit cosmetics that the FBI warned us about!  Plus the ingredient list just doesn’t seem quite right (besides the typo.) How can water be the last ingredient in the formula? That doesn’t make sense. And if the ingredient list isn’t correct, then what else could be wrong? (Of course this could just be an error on the part of Amazon as well. If the company contacts us with additional information about the product and how it works I’ll be more than happy to revise this post.)

    Hi, I use the Hyalogic LLC, Episilk, Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum — I like it, but what do you think of the ingredients? I chose it because it doesn’t have any preservatives or alcohols or superfluous “stuff” — which is great, I think, but I wonder if it will be stable for very long..

    Why in the world would you think that preservatives are “superfluous?” They are in the formula to protect it (and you) from bacteria, mold and fungi.

    I must be a freak of nature. Hyaluronic Acid, even in tiny amounts, cause my seb-derm to flare.
