Benefits of Phytoceramides
Phytoceramides for Skin
There have been many comprehensive studies conducted over the years to explore the skin healing and wrinkle reducing attributes of Phytoceramides. Our wrinkle remedy is based on a formula that uses rice-based ceramides that the Japanese have been testing and using in their wrinkle smoothing and fine lines reduction products since the early 2000’s.
What are Phytoceramides?
Our skin is made up of 40-50% ceramides, fatty molecules existing naturally andknown to play a key role in helping to retain moisture and structure. In addition, they also are a main factor in providing a much needed barrier to other environmental stressors, like dry air and pollution, two elements that can dramatically increase the appearance of wrinkles. As we age, the amount of naturally produced ceramides decreases, thus increasing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
What we know about the anti-aging properties of Ceramides?
- The moisturizing and skin reinforcing effects of ceramides in supplement are well established in many research studies.
- Phytoceramides, when ingested, are absorbed by Keratinocytes and support the natural production of Ceramides in the body thus boosting the ability to retain moisture, protect the skin and minimize wrinkles.
- Ceramides enhance the strength of the outer layer of the skin increasing the overall protection and health, PLUS, they inhibit Melanin synthesis, the process that causes discoloration and dark spotting (3).
Our Signature Formula
While Phytoceramides can be derived from several sources, our formula uses a rice-based solution which improves moisture retention, dryness, roughness, and overall appearance.
