Filorga Hyal-Defence Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Question of the day: have you ever experienced the power of hyaluronic acid? Oh, maybe a better question would be – do you know what hyaluronic is and what is the reason people want to use it in their skincare? Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a carbohydrate. More specifically, it’s a mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. When not bound to other molecules, it binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to a jelly. Its function in the body is, amongst other things, to bind water and to lubricate movable parts of the body (such as joints and muscles). Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be beneficial in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer. Because HA is one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving) molecules in nature with numerous benefits for the human body it can be described as “nature’s moisturizer”. Although Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can be found naturally in most every cell in the body, it is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin tissue. Almost 50% of the bodies HA is found here. It is found in both the deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of HA that helps keep the skin stay young and healthy. The HA provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water. With age, the ability of the skin to produce HA decreases. I think it’s now a lot clearer why this ingredient is so sought after in the skincare industry. I have a perfect example of how a skincare item with hyaluronic acid is done right. Let’s take a look at the Filorga Hyal-Defence Hyaluronic Acid Serum 30ml (approx £35).

Pitanje dana: da li ste nekada iskusile istinsku moc hijaluronske kiseline? Mozda bi bolje pitanje bilo – znate li sta je uopste hijaluronska kiselina te koji je razlog zbog cega je ljudi zele u proizvodima za njegu koze? Hijaluronska kiselina, poznata kao i hyaluronan ili hyaluronate, je ugljikohidrat. Tacnije, radi se o mukopolisaharidu koji je prirodno prisutan u ljudskom tijelu. Kada se ne veze za druge molekule, veze se za vodu dajuci joj cvrscu viskoznu kvalitetu koja je slicna zeleu. Funkcija hijaluronske kiseline u tijelu je (medju ostalim stvarima) da se veze za vodu i da ‘podmazuje’ pokretne dijelove tijela (poput zgobova i misica). Konzistencija i prilagodba tkivu omogucava ovom sastojku da bude jako koristan u svrhu njege koze (tacnije, kao sredstvo za hidrataciju). Posto je hijaluronska kiselina jedna od izrazito hidrofilnih molekula (lako privlaci vodu) u prirodi, ljudskom tijelu moze pruziti visestruke koristi te je cesto opisana kao “prirodno sredstvo za hidrataciju”. Iako je mozemo pronaci u gotovo svakoj celiji ljudskog tijela, njene najvece koncentracije su u tkivu koze. Gotovo 50% ukupih rezervi hijaluronske kiseline u tijelu se nalazi upravo u kozi. Mozemo je pronaci kako u dubljim, tako i u povrsinskim slojevima koze. Mlada koza je glatka i elasticna te sadrzi visoke nivoe hijauronske kiseline koja joj pomaze da ostane mlada i zdrava. Hijaluronska kiselina pruza neprekidnu hidrataciju kozi vezuci i do 1000 puta vece kolicine vode od vlastite tezine. Kako nastupa starenje, sposobnost koze da proizvodi hijaluronsku kiselinu opada. I mislim da je sada jasnije zbog cega je ovaj sastojak toliko trazen. Imam idealan primjer izrazito efektnog proizvoda za lice koji ga sadrzi. Pogledajmo zajedno Filorga Hyal-Defence Serum sa hijaluronskom kiselinom 30ml (cca 90KM).

Filorga is a respectable skincare brand in the aesthetic medicine field which I’ve heard of about four years ago. I am still obsessed with the idea of trying their Meso-Mask or their praised Sleep and Peel night cream but given a chance to try out the highly effective hyaluronic fluid – I found that it could be a perfect, proper introduction to the brand (and to the real effects of HA). Filorga Hyal-Defence Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a protective hyaluronic acid serum which helps maintain young, plump looking skin by preserving the hyaluronic acid present in the dermis. As we learned, skin’s ability to produce HA decreases with time. The skin is better protected, it looks more radiant, smoother and plumper – something I can personally attest to. It promises to provide 93% hyaluronic acid stimulation which is absolutely wonderful and this serum is something used to fortify the effect of hyaluronic acid injections or mesotherapy. I told you that this is no ordinary hydrating serum but a grown-up version of the even best ones I’ve tried so far. The 30ml serum/fluid comes packaged in a futuristic silver colored tube with a white pump at the top (quite an interesting and hygienic option!). This serum is of a milky white coloring, has a very light aqua reminiscent scent (which fades off) and is of an extremely plumping, hydrating formula. I’ve noticed how it instantly smooths out the skin, ‘erasing’ fine lines from dehydration and it makes my complexion a perfect canvas, prepped for make-up which sits over it wonderfully. Apart from instant results (skin is plump, tight, hydrated, fresh, healthy) – there are also long-term benefits. It simply refines the texture of the skin, evening it out, definitely minimizing mimic and fine lines. I think this serum is the best thing in my skincare routine, perhaps the most effective product I own and is perfection for any and every skin type – but especially the dry or dehydrated one. If you have cash to splash, my recommendation would be to invest in a good hyaluronic acid serum like the Filorga Hyal-Defence.


Filorga je preparativni brend koji je jako cijenjen na polju estetske medicine za koji sam saznala otprilike prije cetiri godine. Jos od prvih otkrica vezano za njih imam veliku zelju da isprobam njhovu Meso masku za lice i hvaljenu Sleep and Peel nocnu kremu. Ipak, prilika da isprobam visoko ucinkoviti serum iz njihovog asortimana koji je obogacen hijaluronskom kiselinom mi se ucinila jednako primamljivom jer bih na ovaj nacin dobila odgovarajuci uvod u ono sto Filorga ali i hijaluronska kiselina kao sastojak nude. Filorga Hyal-Defence Serum sa hijaluronskom kiselinom je zastitni serum koji kozu odrzava mladom, jedrom i svjezom tako sto zadrzava hijaluronsku kiselinu u kozi, sprijecavajuci njeno propadanje (tj. obnavlja njene rezerve). Naucile smo da sposobnost koze da obnavlja njene rezerve opada sa vremenom tako je ovaj princip djelovanja od velikog znacaja. Koza je zasticena, djeluje sjajnije, gladje i punije – sve su ovo obecanja za koja licno mogu reci da bivaju ispunjena. Serum obecava pruzanje stimulaciju hijaluronske kiseline i do 93% sto je sjajno te se koristi kao dopuna tretmana injekcijama hijaluronske kiseline i mezoterapiju. Rekla sam vam da se ovdje ne radi o standardnom hidratantnom serumu – ovdje je rijec o ‘odrasloj’ verziji koja pruza ono sto zelite za vas novac. Usudila bih se reci da je najbolji serum koji sam do sada isprobala. Dolazi upakovan u futuristicku tubu od 30ml koja je obojena u srebrnu boju te na vrhu ima bijelu pumpicu. Pakovanje nije uobicajeno, zanimjlivo je i izuzetno je higijenska opcija sto mi se dopada. Serum je mlijecno bijele boje, veoma je laganog i svjezeg mirisa koji asocira na vodu (a koji nestaje nakon nanosenja) te je izrazito hidratantne formulacije. Odmah po nanosenju sam primjetila da kozu izgladi, kao da je popunjava iznutra i doslovno brise fine linije od dehidratacije pred vasim ocima. Na taj nacin ten cini besprijekornim platnom, pripremajuci ga za make-up koji bez greske ‘sjeda’ na ovako pripremljenu kozu. Osim ovih trenutacnih rezultata koji zaista jesu impresivni, dugorocna upotreba takodjer ima beneficije. Fine linije i mimicke linije ostaju ublazene, tekstura koze je rafinirana, ujednacena i uopsteno koza djeluje zdravije i bez sminke. Ovaj je serum idealan za doslovno svaki tip koze ali – akcenat je na suhoj i dehidriranoj kozi kojima ce biti spas. Ako ste pri novcu, jednostavno imate mogucnost i zelju da ulozite u preparativu – moja preporuka bi bila da ulaganje ucinite u dobar, pouzdan serum sa hijaluronskom kiselinom kakav je  Filorga Hyal-Defence.
