Over View & UseOur ceramide lotion is a powerful tool against the effects of daily cleansing, environmental attacks on the skin and some hereditary skin disorders.
Ceramide Lotion will help replenish the lost ceramide and lipid content of the skin following the use of a soap cleanser. With continued use, the effects and loss of moisture (TEWL) due to daily cleansing can be reduced, and the reserves of essential intercellular lipids increased. This process of lipid renewal will ensure proper barrier function and increase the natural process of cellular sloughing within the stratum corneum to reveal new layers of healthy skin.
Ceramides are a family of lipid molecules and are found in high concentrations within the cell membranes. During the cleansing phase of any skin care program, ceramides are lost, barrier function is compromised and ceramide recovery is necessary to ensure proper skin health.
Ceramides make up the bulk of the lipid layer which holds the skin’s cells together in a firm, smooth structure. They maintain the moisture retention ability of the skin. A drop in the level of ceramides results in the skin becoming dry, leading to increased fine lines and wrinkles. If the body cannot keep up with the loss of its ceramide content due to environmental or age-related factors, your skin will lose its ability to stop structural damage and trans epidermal water loss which will lead to unwanted skin conditions, most of all wrinkles.
The use of topical ceramides is clinically proven to build up ceramide levels with continued daily use, and increase the skin’s ability to prevent water loss and other related skin conditions – the result being diminished fine lines and the reduction in the severity of facial wrinkles. Ceramide Lotion’s ceramide 2 ingredient will aid in the recovery of the stratum corneum barrier after daily cleansing and protect the skin from further moisture loss. Ceramide 2 will strengthen and repair the skin’s barrier while improving cell cohesion, enhancing water retention and reduce skin dryness.
