WHAT ARE CERAMIDES?
Ceramides are a natural component of the human skin and make up most of the epidermis layer. Combined with other natural components produced by our bodies, ceramides form a protective barrier in our skin, which helps it stay hydrated. They also play an important role in reducing infection and protecting against harmful UV rays. Unfortunately, as we age ceramides diminish within our skin. The barrier of our skin breaks down and we don't maintain as much moisture to keep our skin hydrated. Ceramides pass through cell membranes and cannot be stored by your body. The only way to get them into our diet is through supplementation.
WHAT ARE PHYTOCERAMIDES?
Phytoceramides are similar to these naturally occurring ceramides but are derived from plants. They can help reverse the signs of aging by naturally reintroducing ceramides into our bodies which help restore the protective skin barrier and lock in moisture for healthy, smooth skin from the inside out. Our skin is made up of the protein collagen, approximately 75%, as well as water. Phytoceramides help increase the amounts of naturally produced elastin and collagen in the body, which are responsible for creating the wrinkle-free skin that we desire. Elastin is our body's way of ensuring a healthy, young appearance, while collagen provides necessary protection. When you have the right amounts of both, they will reduce the marks and wrinkles associated with aging. Working deep within the skin's structure, Phytoceramides help to moisturize the skin and "plump" it up for a smoother texture and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
