Ceramides hold skin together and form a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage from environmental stressors. Ceramides also help to keep your skin supple.

Ceramides in skincare

With a proven track record in addressing signs of ageing, ceramides are a true hidden gem in skincare. Ceramides are in fact lipids (fats) that occur naturally in skin. You can view ceramides as the mortar between the skin cells. They play an important role in keeping the cells together.

Ceramide benefits

Preventing moisture loss and protecting skin from visible damage from environmental stressors are some of the key benefits of ceramides in skincare. Frequent use of a moisturizer with ceramides or other ceramides products can help to replenish the naturally occurring ceramides in skin.

Ceramides and other ingredients

Wondering which is better: ceramides or hyaluronic acid? The answer is: your skin needs both! Hyaluronic acid provides much-needed hydration while ceramides help your skin hold onto it. In other words, there is no single anti-ageing ingredient that does it all, so make sure your ceramide cream or serum is also formulated with antioxidants and skin-restoring ingredients such as retinol, niacinamide, linoleic acid, peptides and hyaluronic acid.
