In which products can we find ceramides?

Ceramides are among the most well-known cosmetic active ingredients. And for good reason, they make up to 50% of the intercellular lipids in the corneal layer of the epidermis before experiencing a decrease in their quantity with age and under the effect of various factors. It is therefore appropriate to provide them through cosmetic care. But where can they be found?

Ceramides: Why should we apply them?

Naturally present in the skin, ceramides are lipids that make up about 50% of the intercellular cement. They ensure the proper maintenance of the cells in the corneal layer together, thereby preventing the penetration of aggressors and the evaporation of water: this is what is then called the barrier function. The result: the skin is supple, hydrated, elastic, and resilient.

However, over time and due to external damage (pollution, over-exfoliation, sun exposure, humidity, cold, etc.), the skin does not produce enough to sustain itself and these 50% of ceramides decrease. Therefore, the barrier function is no longer properly ensured and skin issues can arise: irritation, redness, dryness, inflammation...

Nevertheless, the daily application of ceramides significantly improves the skin's structure, and strengthens its ability to defend against external aggressions in a sustainable way and prevent water loss. All skin types can benefit from its properties, and this is also true for hair.

Cosmetic Market: In which skincare products can we find ceramides?

Restorative, strengthening, and protective, ceramides are found in various skin and hair care products, thereby helping to prevent loss of radiance, dehydration, dry patches, sensitivities, redness, or even the premature appearance of signs of aging.

  • Cleansers for blemished skin: Inflammatory conditions can also cause damage to the skin barrier, such as acne, and thus be responsible for the formation of comedones. Ceramides then contribute to the maintenance of a balanced microbiome and the non-proliferation of germs.

  • Eye contour creams: With no sebaceous glands, the eye contour area is more susceptible to visible signs of aging. However, the ceramides in the formula promote the coalition of corneocytes among themselves, thus creating a protective barrier against dryness and external aggressions.

  • Restorative treatments for dry or sensitive skin: By nature, these types of skin have a deficiency in ceramides. Topical application helps to restructure and deeply hydrate the skin. The skin then regains comfort with less irritation, hydration, and softness.

  • Care for mature skin: Ceramides are used to nourish, revitalize, and provide comfort to mature skin. They help slow down the appearance of aging signs by stimulating the process of cellular regeneration. The result: smoother, firmer, and brighter skin, and reduced fine lines.

  • Lip balms or masks: The skin of the lips is thin and delicate, often prone to skin discomforts such as tingling, chapping, dryness... Ceramides help to rebuild a strong skin barrier for soft lips.

  • After-sun products: Lotions, creams, gels... the presence of ceramides helps to repair the epidermis damaged by excessive sun exposure and to preserve the stratum corneum, while providing comfort to stressed and sensitized skin, alongside ingredients with cooling, soothing, and hydrating effects.

  • Haircare: Shampoos, hair masks, conditioners... Ceramides are used to "smooth" the scales of dry and damaged hair by ensuring better cohesion between them, thereby strengthening the hair fiber.

Our selection of ceramide-based skincare treatments.

ceramides in a skincare range.

  • Composed of 98% natural ingredients, we have developed a night lip mask with an ultra-rich balm-gel texture that forms a smoothing film on the lips. The goal? To hydrate, soften, smooth, and repair chapped and damaged lips thanks to the trio of active ingredients ceramides (INCI name: Ceramides NG), hyaluronic acid (INCI name: Sodium Hyaluronate) and mango butter (INCI name: Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter).

  • With an action from lengths to ends, our hair mask has been designed to strengthen the hair fiber. It benefits from the virtues of biomimetic ceramides derived from biotechnology (INCI name: Behenyl/Stearyl Aminopropanediol Esters), combined with avocado oil (INCI name: Persea Gratissima (avocado) Oil) and mango butter. These ingredients indeed enhance the hair's hydration to coat it. As a result, the hair will gain in strength and flexibility. This hair care is particularly suitable for dry and damaged hair and can be used once or twice a week.
