Ceramides are fatty acids naturally found in the body. Thus, using ceramide-infused products can help repair the barrier, lock in moisture, and adequately hydrate your skin—you can think of them as bodyguards for your moisture barrier.
But that’s not the only reason they are so loved. Ceramides are in it for the long haul as they hydrate and protect your skin against environmental stressors and equip your barrier to nourish itself. They are key ingredients, considering they help to keep the skin healthy, supple, and even fight signs of ageing.
If we have convinced you ceramide is the magic product you need in your vanity, here are a few ceramide-based products (we have moisturisers, a toner, and a cleanser) to keep your skin happy and with a hydrated glow.
