Ceramides in Skincare 101

19.12.2023 | Skincare

Have you started to notice signs your skin is changing? Perhaps it’s a little slacker or maybe a few fine lines where you didn’t used to have them? Whatever you’re feeling, we’ve got the product for you. Introducing NEW Bio-Active Ceramide Repairing and Plumping Moisturizer. Powered by Bio-Active Ceramides for up to 4X visible fine line & wrinkle reduction*, this is a new age in skincare technology. Let’s take a closer look at the formula with a deep dive on the science behind ceramides in skincare… 

What are Ceramides?

A familiar skincare ingredient, Ceramides are known for their ability to form the key building blocks of a healthy skin barrier. Occurring naturally in the skin, they play an important role in helping to retain moisture and protect against environmental factors. Traditionally Ceramides are longer chain molecules which work on the outermost layers of the skin, also known as the epidermis.

What are Bio-Active Ceramides?

Unearthing a revolution in aging skincare technology, we formulated our new moisturizer with Bio-Active Ceramides, an ingredient which takes the traditional Ceramide to the next level.  

Next-generation Bio-Active Ceramides go beyond barrier repair to help reset, strengthen, and protect the skin through multiple layers. Engineered with a novel short chain structure, the ingredient facilitates deeper penetration and provides dual action targeting for both the outer and deeper layers of the skin’s surface. 

NEW Bio-Active Ceramide Repairing and Plumping Moisturizer 

A revolutionary new moisturizer set to transform your skin, Bio-Active Ceramide Repairing and Plumping Moisturizer is a new age in skincare technology to defend against visible signs of skin aging.

The rich, velvety formula delivers multi-level support to help strengthen the skin barrier, provide 24-HR hydration, and accelerate visible skin renewal. After 28 days, 100% saw a clinical improvement in 6 signs of aging; wrinkles, fine lines, plumpness, firmness, lift, elasticity and barrier function.

The addition of Gransil Blur helps to instantly blur the appearance of fine lines creating a soft-focussed effect on the skin, while Shea Butter deeply nourishes and reduces water loss to help protect the skin's moisture barrier. ​





100% SAW A CLINICAL IMPROVEMENT IN 6 SIGNS OF AGING (fine lines, wrinkles, plumpness, firmness, lift, elasticity and barrier function)**

*12-week independent clinical study of 30 people, comparing the performance of the ingredient Ceramide NP at 0.2% vs a placebo formulation.  

**4-week clinical study of 20 people  


Which skin types would benefit from (Bio-Active) Ceramides?

Ceramides are versatile and suitable for a variety of skin types. Their ability to support the skin barrier makes this especially valuable for those with dry or sensitive skin.

How often should I use ceramides?

Frequency depends on the specific product, but incorporating them into a daily routine is common. Our Bio-Active Ceramide Repairing and Plumping Moisturizer is designed for twice a day, daily use, as it helps maintain continuous support of your skin barrier health.

What other ingredients can be mixed with ceramides?

When using ceramides, it’s generally safe to combine them with other skincare ingredients. Ceramides can be part of a comprehensive skincare routine.  Here are several ingredients to consider mixing individually with Ceramides:  retinoids, Vitamin C, and AHAs/BHAs.
