Water-in-oil rich and nutritive cream to treat dry and sensitive skin. Vegan Ceramides is a rice extract made with a process to optimize the sphingolipids and phospholipids fraction. Ceramides play an important role in the structure and quality of the stratum corneum. Ceramides represent the main components of the intercellular lipid cement (40%). They control several essential biological functions: regulation of the trans-epidermal water flow, cohesion of the stratum corneum layers, protection of the skin and restoration of the skin barrier. This clinical study, performed on 11 healthy volunteers, shows that Vegan Ceramides improve, in a highly significant way, skin hydration: +73% compared to placebo after 30 minutes and 53% vs placebo after 8 hours.
Active ingredients: Vegan ceramids (2%). Natural glycerin (3%)
Indications: - Moisturise the skin. - Regulate the trans-epidermal water flow. - Protect the skin. - Restore of the lipid barrier.
How to use: Wash your face before you apply the moisturizer. Collect a dime-size amount of the cream. Dab it onto your face. Follow an upward, circular direction to massage the cream on to your skin. Do not apply the cream on your eye-lids. The cream has to be applied in the morning or at night on a cleansed skin and can be used in synergy with serums.
Scent: Aloe vera.
Product texture: The texture is an ultra soft and comforting water-in-oil emulsion that provides intense nutrition to the skin. The water phase of the ceramid cream is also isotonic and balanced in salt to optimize the water transfer into the skin. Water-in-oil emulsions are highly recommended for dry and sensitive skin. They provide a good balance between nutrition and hydration, long-lasting protection and high water diffusion into the skin. The emollients are a mixture of long-chain fatty acid esters that melt at skin temperature. They create a soft, pleasant, smooth skin feel. They have high levels of re fatting potential, and strong water repellent properties to form a film that protects the skin from drying out.
