What are ceramides?
Ceramides are skin’s own lipid molecules that are naturally present in epidermis or stratum corneum. They make up to 50% of the skin composition to form the natural skin barrier, which also consists of cholesterol and fatty acids. Essentially, ceramides are a glue that holds together our skin cells and prevent permeability of the skin – they help seal in moisture and protect the skin from environmental damage.
With ageing and other environmental factors (sun damage, inappropriate skin care etc.) quality and quantity of ceramides reduces, which can lead to dry and irritated skin, wrinkles, redness etc. The skin also becomes more susceptible to environmental influences. Supplementation with ceramides stimulated ceramides production, increases its quantity and help restore skin’s barrier.
