HylaPure has a novel approach to reducing fine lines and wrinkles. HylaPure consists of a solution of hyaluronic acid, which is clinically-proven to be effective in anti-wrinkle formulations. HylaPure markets its product for both oral use and for topical application. Taken orally, HylaPure claims to re-lubricate joints and reduce the pain of osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Applied to the skin, HylaPure claims to reduce and eliminate wrinkles and to help build collagen in the skin.
HylaPure appears to be distributed by Arrowhead Health Works, who may also be the manufacturer. The website is not clear but the Arrowhead site appears to be the only place online that you can purchase HylaPure at the time of this review. According to the website, the hyaluronic acid in HylaPure is not manufactured from rooster combs as they claim most other products are. The hyaluronic acid is cultured in a lab and therefore is more sterile and free from the possibility of disease transmission. HylaPure comes in a package of 28 single dose ampoules, which works out to be a 14 day supply when used twice a day per the directions. Each box of 28 ampoules retails for $180, so the cost of using this product on an ongoing basis works out to be over $360 per month, a far more substantial investment than many consumers are willing to make.
HylaPure contains a 1.25% solution of hyaluronic acid according to the retailer. There is no information available as to what else is in the solution. Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient many consumers look for in a high-quality anti-aging product. It can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water and is clinically-proven to deeply hydrate the skin.
The HylaPure instructions encourage the user to use HylaPure with a facial massager or ultrasound machine in order to drive the product deeper into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is well-known for its ability to penetrate the skin so it is puzzling as to why this treatment is being recommended, other than the fact that Arrowhead also sells this facial equipment.
- Contains hyaluronic acid.
- Available for purchase online.
- No apparent money-back guarantee.
- Very expensive compared to alternative treatments.
- Company recommends purchase of facial equipment to assist in the application.
- No information available regarding other ingredients.
The Bottom Line
If you are looking for an alternative to having hyaluronic acid injected into your face with a needle, you may wish to explore HylaPure. However, there are many high-quality skin care products on the market that contain hyaluronic acid and other proven ingredients such as collagen or Matrixyl 3000. The best companies stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee, especially for products as expensive as this one. Consumers may wish to explore other, less expensive skin care options before settling on this one. Keep in mind that if you purchase HylaPure and are not happy with it, you may not be able to get your money back.
