What are Ceramides?
Ceramides are lipids that make up to ~50% of the skins lipids to form the natural skin barrier.
What Do Ceramides Do?
Ceramides are essentially the glue that holds our skin cells together to keep our skin barrier intact and healthy. A healthy skin barrier helps seal in moisture and seal out harmful elements.
Ceramides Are Key to Healthy Skin
Lower ceramide levels are linked to skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea1. Sun exposure, harsh climates, and age also impact ceramide levels and can compromise your skin barrier function contributing to dry skin2.
