Skin Care Ingredients: Ceramides


Lipid molecules hold skin cells together. Ceramides help to form the skin’s protective barrier battling the negative influence of UV lights, chemicals, bacteria, and viruses. Help retain moisture in the skin to keep it plump and younger-looking. Ceramides constitute more than 50% of the outer skin layer.


Ceramide creams are excellent anti-aging moisturizers reducing fine wrinkles, dryness, flaking. Topical ceramides are very effective in replenishing ceramide levels in the skin and even help reduce signs of eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

With age, the skin produces fewer ceramides. To restore skin protective function and keep skin hydrated – use ceramides containing creams to battle signs of aging and help with dehydrated, sensitive, overactive skin on the face and body.
Use high enough concentration emollient for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis – consult your dermatologist.
Ceramides creams are used as an adjunct to acne treatments to prevent dry, red, flaking skin.

Look for ceramide ingredients labeled as ceramide AP, EOP, NG, NP, or NS.
Also, look for ceramide precursors in cream ingredients – phytosphingosine and sphingolipids. These substances help the production of ceramides in the skin.
