As the barrier function is altered, water loss is increased, the skin is weakened and becomes more sensitive to external aggressions. In the long term, a change in ceramide content leads to premature skin ageing and the appearance of wrinkles. It is therefore important to maintain ceramides for healthy skin.
Which ceramide active ingredients or ceramide boosters do we have in our portfolio?
Ceramides are applied topically or orally to maintain supple, nourished and hydrated skin that protects against dryness, irritation and ageing.
We have the following cosmetic ingredients in our portfolio that address this target:
- Ceramides from plant origin, phytoceramides: CERAMOSIDES™ HP
- Active ingredients that stimulate the production of natural ceramides in the skin, Ceramide Boosters: AQUAXYL™, HETEROSIDES, NATIVE ESSENCE™ & BLUE SEAKALE SC.
CERAMOSIDES™ HP (COSMOS certified, preservative and gluten free) is a natural, biomimetic and patented complex with phytoceramides for perfect skin. It acts as a powerful anti-ageing shield. Ceramides are rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9, which moisturize the skin and protect it from losing its elasticity and firmness. The pores are tightened and the skin texture is visibly refined.
Beauty from within is where cosmetics and nutrition meet. It is the new way to care for the skin from the inside out and nourish the whole body. Oral intake of phytoceramides helps restore the ceramide content of the skin. CERAMOSIDES™ have been developed to be the most efficient source of oral phytoceramides for skin hydration and anti-ageing proven by clinical studies.
