The word 'Ceramide' comes from Cera for wax and amide for chemicals that contain an amine group (found in amino acids and urea).
Ceramides are waxy lipids found in cell membranes. They play an important role in skin protection, assisting in barrier functionality and moisturisation.
The level of ceramide in our skin decreases with age and also decrease as a consequence of stress (pimples, irritation etc). This loss of Ceramides weakens skin barrier functioning. Topical application of ceramide-rich skincare can help rectify that and restore the skins vitality.
