Frequently asked questions

ceramides are a type of lipid naturally found in the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin). Ceramides make up approximately 50% of your skin barrier and are an essential part of the skin’s extracellular matrix.

ceramides play a critical role in maintaining a strong barrier to protect skin against dehydration, irritation, and signs of aging. Ceramides help prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by helping skin retain moisture. Additionally, around the age of 30, the extracellular matrix’s composition naturally changes and produces a lower percentage of ceramides, cholesterol, and free fatty acids.

the skin barrier is considered the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin) and the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix is composed mostly of lipids (ceramides, fatty acids, cholesterol) in addition to collagen, elastin, and enzymes. You can think of the skin barrier as a brick wall, the skin cells are the bricks and the extracellular matrix is the mortar holding the bricks together.

stop anything that can be irritating your skin (over cleansing or exfoliating, exposure to extreme temperatures, etc) and replenish your skin with ingredients like ceramides, humectants, and emollients. Our ceramide barrier serum contains all three!

ceramides are most effective when they are used with cholesterol and fatty acids to mimic the skin’s lipid layer. 

our products are always formulated to be effective and gentle. however, we always recommend showing our ingredients list to your doctor or health care provider to confirm safety for you specifically!
