Ceramides and Hyaluronic acid are important for optimal health and hydration of the skin. They’re both natural substances produced by the body but act in different ways. Ceramides are lipids, which are fatty acids that are produced in the sebaceous glands.
Ceramides help to moisturize and strengthen the protective skin barrier and protect the skin from external aggressors such as weather and pollution. Hyaluronic acid is a transparent, gel-like fluid that is not only produced in the skin but also in other areas of the body. Their concentration in the skin is particularly high. Hyaluronic acid is classed as a humectant as it attracts and retains moisture in the skin.
Benefits of Ceratop® Long-Lasting Moisturizer
Borage Oil – anti-inflammatory property helps to reduce swelling. Borage Oil is a little-known secret for keeping your skin healthy. It is a natural oil that not only restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin but can also provide relief to people who suffer from chronic skin disorders such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.
Borage, (Borago Officinalis) is a wildflower commonly called the starflower. It is a relatively large plant (1.5 ft tall) with star-shaped bright blue flowers and it is found wild in almost all parts of the world. It is a well-known herb that has been recognized and used for over 1500 years. The Roman historian Pliny writes of the virtues of Borage and it is suspected that Borage leaves, steeped in wine, were the mysterious Nepenthe Elixer that Homer writes of which causes absolute forgetfulness when drunk. In the middle ages, Borage leaves were commonly brewed into medicinal tea.
However today the borage plant is grown and harvested not for its leaves and stems but rather for the very valuable oil found in its seeds – Borage Oil. The great value of this oil is that it is the richest known source – 24% of an essential fatty acid called gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
There is ample evidence from research on both humans and animals showing that Borage oil has a significant effect on improving the health and appearance of skin tissue. Clinically Borage Oil has been shown to be a very effective agent for treating skin disorders and for alleviating the inflammatory symptoms associated with these disorders. For everyday use, Borage oil has been shown to be very effective in treating the redness, inflammation, and moisture loss associated with dry skin. Whether you take Borage Oil orally or apply it to your skin it appears to positively affect the texture, suppleness, and moisture content of the skin. Simply put, Borage oil is good for your skin.
Ceramide III – Repairs skin barrier, treats dermatitis, prevents wrinkles, and tones skin. Ceramide-3 for topical application play a key role in helping the skin retain moisture, and improve the healthy functioning of the skin barrier. Ceramide-3 is very helpful in emollience and moisturizing dry skin and helping to drastically improve the appearance of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Applying this product regularly helps to improve skin barrier function, increase skin hydration, and normalize healthful skin functioning.
Ceramides are, simply put, lipids (fats) that occur naturally in the skin. They make up over 50% of the skin’s composition, so it’s no wonder they play such an important role in protecting your skin against environmental threats and helping it look younger.
Ceramides have proven anti-aging properties. If you compare them to bricks and mortar, skin cells are the bricks and ceramides are the mortar. Ceramides hold the skin together and form a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage from environmental stressors. Ceramides also help to keep your skin supple.
Besides ceramides, there are two other fascinating ingredients: phytosphingosine and sphingolipid. These are ceramide precursors and help the upper layers of skin to produce more ceramide, so that skin can protect itself better.
Young skin produces lots of ceramides. But as you age and through sun damage, the quality and quantity of ceramides reduce. This can lead to a damaged skin barrier, causing dry, rough skin, wrinkles, redness, irritation, and dehydration. Ceramides in skincare can replenish the ceramides in your skin. This helps your skin to look and act like younger skin and keeps it hydrated, firm, and supple.
Ceramides are ‘skin-identical ingredients’ because they occur naturally in the skin. This makes them an ideal ingredient for all skin types, even sensitive, breakout-prone, or oily skin. Ceramides are also safe to use around the eyes.
Hyaluronic Acid – a wonderful moisturizer, works as a humectant, keeps the skin hydrated, plumps up skin cells, and makes it look radiant and smooth. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar normally found in between the collagen bundles in the skin, providing hydration and plumpness. The stuff occurs naturally in the body and decreases as we age, dragging that youthful luster down with it. The idea, then, is that applying a topical formula can counteract the loss of volume over time.
Saccharide Isomerate – effective moisturizer, binds to the free amino groups of lysine in the keratin of the stratum corneum, and cannot be washed off easily, leading to long-lasting moisturization. Saccharide isomerate is a water-binding agent and emollient, particularly helpful for dry skin. Research indicates it has an affinity for soothing and strengthening the skin’s barrier while delivering long-lasting hydration.
Saccharide Isomerate is a 100% plant-derived carbohydrate complex, similar to that found in human skin. Known for its excellent ability to bind to the skin, this vegan hyaluronic acid booster has been shown to deliver long-lasting hydrating and smoothing effects to the skin. Due to its excellent soothing and calming effects on the skin, saccharide isomerate is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
