Naturally occurring skin lipids that are major structural components of the skin’s outer structure. Skin as a barrier system inhibits water movement via its extracellular matrix, which has a unique composition of 50% ceramides, 25% cholesterol, and 15% free fatty acids. Ceramides are necessary for the skin’s water-retention capacity as well as for cell regulation. Adding ceramides to skin-care products can help to restore the skin’s barrier system.
Component of skin tissue that is used in skin-care products as a good skin-identical ingredient. Hyaluronic Acids can boost skin's moisture content and help prevent moisture loss. Using moisturizers of any kind that contain Hyaluronic Acids allows your skin to repair and regenerate itself.
Vitamin E is considered an antioxidant superstar. It is one of the most well-known and researched antioxidants, both when taken orally and when used in skin-care products. Vitamin E can protect the epidermis from early stages of sun damage, increase the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients, reduce water loss in the skin and reduce the severity of sunburn.
