Have you ever heard about the skincare ingredient Ceramides? If you want to keep your skin looking healthy and happy, you need to become the best friend with this ingredient. Here are the reasons:

1. Ceramides make up 50% of the skin’s barrier

A depletion of Ceramides leads to an impaired barrier causing a breakdown in the form of inflammation, sensitivity, wrinkles, and dryness. This can present itself as skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, and others, just to name a few.

2. They're your first line of defense

Ceramides are a layer fortifier, keeping pesky pathogens like microbes and bacteria out, giving your skin the best chance to fend off these aggressors at the front lines.

3. They prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL)

Ceramides seal cracks in a watertight way, preventing water from escaping and evaporating off the skin; more hydration means fewer wrinkles! 

4. Ceramides act as master mediators

Ceramides improve inter-cell communication for a more harmonious skin matrix, this is crucial to keeping skin disruptions like inflammation at bay.

The most interesting thing to know is that the best ceramides are lab-built ceramides created by scientists, to be more bio-mimetic, so they can enter the skin without rejection from the immune system.

In our Day Night Cream that is one of the winners of Dutch Beauty Award this year, Ceramides are one of the most important ingredients. Have you already tried this product?
