What are Ceramides and why are they so important?

Your skin´s topmost layer is the body´s protective barrier against the outside environment, which keeps out harmful germs and chemicals. It also functions as a moisture retention barrier, keeping hydration in. Dermatologists call this the “skin barrier”. Dry, sensitive skin´s protective barrier is weakened and easily feels tight, dry and itchy.
Ceramides are natural lipids and key components of the topmost layer. Ceramides line up and interact with other lipids to form a structure, which is essential for moisture retention and the strength of the skin barrier. If you have dry, sensitive skin, the issue may be that you don´t have enough natural ceramides in your skin.
Find out here how to boost your ceramide levels and achieve healthy-looking, moisturized skin with the Curél Ceramide Care System.

The Curél Ceramide Care System works with your skin to replenish, protect and promote the natural ceramide moisturizers in your skin – thereby revitalizing dry, sensitive skin into deeply hydrated, blossoming skin.


What happens when skin
doesn´t have enough ceramides?

When skin is lacking ceramides due to environmental factors, behaviours, or external irritants, the skin’s protective barrier function is no longer strong and impenetrable. This often leads to that feeling of dry, tight, itchy, sensitive skin. Ceramide levels have a direct impact on the skin´s ability to fight off dryness and outside stressors.
