Ceramides, the solution for dry skin.

Dry, dull, and irritated skin... these are signs of a disrupted skin balance. If you wish to address these discomforts, ceramides present themselves as a solution to overcome this issue.

Dry skin = skin lacking ceramides.

Ceramides are fatty acids that make up about 80% of the skin. For the production of facial and body care products, they are extracted from vegetable oils, including sunflower oil and jojoba oil. Ceramides can also be obtained through synthesis or fermentation. They possess moisturizing properties. As a result, they help to rehydrate your skin and make it radiant. You will no longer have a problem with dry skin since your pores will be dilated.

Topical ceramide supplementation as a solution for dry skin.

Ceramides are fatty substances that belong to the sphingolipid family. They are major components of the intercellular cement (up to 50%), where they ensure good cohesion of the cells in the corneal layer, along with cholesterol and free fatty acids. Thus, they form the skin barrier that retains water in the skin and blocks the entry of harmful substances. They therefore create a firm, flexible, and resilient texture of the skin.
