Sodium hyaluronate was put on the map when The Archives of Dermatology said it was one of three treatments proven to be clinically effective (the other two were retinol and laser resurfacing).

Sodium hyaluronate (or hyaluronic acid) is naturally occurring in our tissues, especially those of the face. It pulls in moisture and fills up the spaces between the connective fibers, collagen and elastin, in the dermis. Cosmetic formulators have started to take this ingredient very seriously as an anti-ager and in the past year or so, some really interesting and impressive products have put sodium hyaluronate front and center. Here are my Five Best products with hyaluronic acid for 2015.

  • BRAD Biophotonic Hydrating Hyaluronic Infusion Serum

    BRAD Biophotonic Hydrating Hyaluronic Infusion Serum ($95 in the shop). If you haven’t yet hopped aboard the BRADwagon, then this is a good place to start. New to the BRAD lineup, this deeply hydrating serum is a drink for the skin that will leave it feeling comfortable and supple. There’s much more than moisturizing going on here. If you are intrigued by some of BRAD’s hero ingredients, such as the amino acid complexes, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and vitamins, then this serum is an excellent introduction to a line that our reviewer, Tina, calls a “game changer.”

  • Stemulation Hi-Impact Serum

    Stemulation Hi-Impact Serum ($185 in the shop). I think Hi-Impact is a breakthrough product for Stemulation with a focused and highly effective formula that sets out to achieve three objectives and succeeds. These are to hydrate, brighten and repair. Sodium hyaluronate appears alongside its molecular sister hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, a water-retaining marine active, to hydrate. There’s a growth factor to repair, and the brightening ingredients include Madonna lily leaf extract. Imparting velvety skin, Hi-Impact is a very welcome addition to my regimen.

  • Sciote Super Moist Hyaluronic Serum

    Sciote Super Moist Hyaluronic Serum($75 in the shop). Sciote formulates to be pure and powerful. Super Moist gets with the program with hefty doses of sodium hyaluronate and MSM (as seen in BRAD above), the purest form of sulphur and an important treatment for dry skin. And it isn’t just any old hyaluronic acid. Sciote uses Hyalurosmooth, a botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid. It is made of polysaccharides extracted from the seed of an Indian plant, cassia angustifolia. Plant extracts include horsetail, which is helpful for broken veins, and gotu kola, an anti-inflammatory. As always, with Sciote, there’s nothing among the ingredients to dislike.

  • Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime Sleep Tight Mask

    Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime Sleep Tight Mask ($89 in the shop). Sleep Tight Mask is like putting my skin on a hydrating intravenous drip. A hybrid mask and night cream, it has a 20% dose of sodium hyaluronate. It is part of the Osmotics Prime line that has been created with menopausal woman in mind. If hormonal loss of hydration is aging you, then this line is a must-try. The mask contains the line’s signature copper peptides that promote collagen and elastin, and I also like the inclusion of peony oligosaccharides for restoring skin density.

  • Sevani Hyaluronic Wrinkle Defense Serum

    Sevani Hyaluronic Wrinkle Defense Serum ($68 in the shop). Deservedly popular with the Truth In Aging community, Sevani’s serum is perfect for those with sensitive and out of sorts skin. It is also a great anti-aging all-rounder with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, sea buckthorn, resveratrol, willowbark and DMAE. Fanatical (in a good way) about naturally sourced ingredients, Sevani gets its hyaluronic acid from tremella, a type of fungus (with no nasties). Sevani is also great for those who want natural formulas that do their job at a decent price.

    Hi Sharon, looking on the TruSkin website, I only see "botanical hyaluronic acid" listed with no specific mention of cassia angustifolia seed polysacharide. However, cassia angustifolia seed polysacharide is certainly used by formulators as a botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid. It is used by the Sciote product selected as one of the Five Best above.

    I just ordered Vitamin C serum with Hylauronic Acid which comes from cassia angustifolia seed polysacharide . The bottle says the seed 'mimics' Hylauronic Acid. Brand name is TruSkin Naturals. Is this Hylauronic acid legit?

    Oops, I forgot to put the name. The brand is instanatural, and you can purchase from their website.

    Hi Jeanine, I have been using a very affordable serum with 2.5% retinol, 20% Vitamin C, 10% Hyaluronic acid, MSM, Niacinamide, and Astaxanthin. It's never irritated my skin. I have my mom, and my sister hooked on it too. I highly recommend it, and the best part is it's only 24 bucks!

    Hi Jeanine, I should probably explain how TIA works. We test products at least 30 days and if we like them they go in the shop. So by definition products in the shop are the ones we have endorsed and recommend. It is also worth pointing out that high concentrations can be a good thing, but I take into consideration the overall formula and the quality of the ingredients. So its more of a quality/price ratio rather than a price/concentration ratio.
