A vital part of the skin’s outer barrier, ceramides are one of the lipids (a form of fat-like molecules) found on stratum corneum (the outer layer of the skin) that help keep our skin naturally hydrated and protected

Why are Ceramides so important?

Ceramides work with other lipids in stratum corneum to hold the skin’s barrier together, offering a protective barrier layer that helps reduce moisture loss and protects skin from environmental aggressors like pollution and dry air.

Why and how can skin lose their ceramides?

Naturally produced by the skin, ceramides deplete due to a variety of factors including aging, seasonal changes, exposure to hot water, solvents, and dry heat.
