Ceramides are lipids that help hold skin cells together. When your skin is damaged or irritated, ceramides decrease, leaving the skin susceptible to skin ailments. When ceramides are increased, they create a protective, hard-to-penetrate layer that shields the skin from outside damage and helps retain moisture. The ceramides you find in products are either synthetic versions or are derived naturally from plants. They are nearly identical to the stuff already found in human skin.
Benefits: Ceramides repair and nourish the skin barrier. They intensely moisturize and prevent environmental damage.
Skin Types: Everyone! Your skin naturally produces ceramides. They can be used two times a day to reach optimal moisture levels!
