Ceramides-from-Within Bolster the Skin Barrier

People of all Ages Seek Support for Sustained Health and Beauty
We are processing information at an astonishing rate. Old and young alike are in search of
proven support for healthy aging, and new approaches to sustaining long-term, optimal
wellness throughout life. We understand the important connections between nutrition,
wellness and beauty. We are savvy, and we do our research before making product decisions.

Going to Root Causes of Skin Issues
When it comes to skin health, we are taking the time to learn more about how to rebuild and repair the skin. Today, technical terms like “sphingolipids” and “stratum corneum” (the skin moisture barrier), are popping up even in social conversation.
Last year, many of us focused on deep solutions that get to the root of skin issues. We are increasing our attention to ways to deeply nourish, hydrate and heal the skin.

Proven Benefits of Ceramides-from-Within
While there is a broad awareness in the personal care and beauty space that ceramides are effective in topical solutions to support skin hydration and healthy aging, science has turned to a close examination of ingestible ceramides. The body of research continues to grow with evidence demonstrating that the oral use of ceramides is highly effective in working internally to strengthen and repair the skin barrier from within the body.

Just about all adults can benefit from ceramides-from-within. The natural aging process contributes to weakening of the skin barrier. Over time, ceramide levels decrease, and the body’s ability to produce lipids (oils) diminishes. Genetics also play a role in determining the strength of the barrier.

Additionally, sometimes even the best-intended skincare routines may be too aggressive. Over-cleansing, or the use of peels and exfoliants can also cause damage to the stratum corneum. Even stress and lack of quality sleep can wreak havoc on skin and weaken the skin barrier.

Ingestible Ceramides and DGDG for Repairing and Strengthening the Skin Barrier
One clinical study looked at Ceramosides specifically – a proprietary extract from Seppic that contains natural ceramides and digalactosyl diglycerides (DGDG). DGDG has been shown to improve the bioavailability and absorption of ceramides. The study showed that Ceramosides significantly improved skin moisturization by more than 16% vs. placebo after just 15 days, and more than 21% vs. placebo after 2 months.

How Do Ceramides Support Skin From Within the Body?
The skin is made up of three layers – the hypodermis, dermis and epidermis (aka stratum corneum). The stratum corneum provides the skin barrier, and is made up of cells called corneocytes, which are surrounded by lipids – which include ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids. These lipids play a critical role in bolstering the skin barrier and allowing the retention of moisture within the cells themselves. A decrease in ceramide content is a key factor in the decline of the important barrier function.

Taking supplemental ceramides orally, delivers them directly through the bloodstream and works from the inside to effectively restore ceramide levels in the stratum corneum. Ingesting Ceramosides has been proven to strengthen and reinforce the skin barrier throughout the body. Using Ceramosides within achieves a deeper solution to sustained health and beauty throughout life.
