What are ceramides?
Ceramides occur naturally within the body. Ceramides are one type of lipids that are found just under the skin and serve as a barrier to germs and other substances that would enter the bloodstream. Ceramides are what holds your skin cells together, and it keeps the skin plump and moisturized.
Ceramides found in skincare products can be synthetic or from plants. They’re almost identical to the ceramides found in human skin.
Benefits of ceramides
Ceramides are great at hydrating the skin and strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. It’s been found that those who suffer from eczema or psoriasis have less ceramides in their skin, so the usage of products with ceramides could benefit those with eczema or psoriasis.
Our products containing ceramides:
1. Moisturizing Serum with Ceramides
This serum is one of our favorites. It contains a high content of plant ceramides. Although it's small, 1-2 drops is enough for your entire face. The serum is thick and on the oilier side, making it more suitable for dry skin although all skin types can use it. This serum also won an award at the World of Beauty & Spa 2016!
2. Professional Serum with Ceramides
Coming soon to Our Happy Box is the Professional Serum with Ceramides, a professional version of our Moisturizing Serum with Ceramides. It has an even higher content of ceramides and also contains vitamin E. Like our Moisturizing Serum, it doesn’t have any added fragrance or preservatives.
