Ingredient Overview


Ceramides are skin’s natural moisturizer. They made up long-chain fatty acids and over 50% of the skin’s composition. They are naturally in the uppermost layers of our skin and play an important role to support the skin’s dynamic nature.

Ceramides by forming a protective layer helping to limit moisture loss and protects skins against environmental damages. They help to have smoother and hydrated skin.

Ceramides are produced naturally by the skin, but body ceramide production will decrease by age.

Ceramides by creating a protective layer help prevent the loss of moisture and shields the skin from dryness, dehydration, and signs of sensitivity.

Fine lines and wrinkles are often more noticeable when the skin is dry. One of the important ceramides function is acting as time-release moisture and anti-ageing effects.

Another benefit of ceramides are managing dry, flaky skin and addressing eczema and help to minimise skin irritation from environmental factors.
