Replaces depleted ceramides to preserve the skin’s protective layer which prevents the loss of moisture, shields the skin from environmental aggressors and fights against premature ageing.
Ceramides makeup 50% of the skin’s lipid content and therefore form a major part of the protective layer of the skin which can deplete with age, over-exfoliation and environmental aggressions. This depletion of ceramides presents as dry, flaky, sensitive skin. 2% Ceramide + GABA replaces depleted ceramides in the skin for optimal barrier protection.
Ceramides are produced naturally by the skin, however, they become depleted over time as we age. Specifically, after age 20, the body produces fewer ceramides at a loss of one percent per year. Maintaining ceramide levels in the skin plays an essential role in managing dryness, dehydration and premature signs of ageing.
