Ceramides and the skins ageing process
Ceramides are lipids or fats that make up around 40% of the intercellular ‘cement’ that works to bind the cells together. Some of these make up essential parts of the skin’s lipid barrier, which is what protects against excessive water loss. This makes them important for the skin’s hydration which promotes healthy and firm looking skin. As we age, the skin slowly loses these natural lipids, meaning it can become more dry, rough and thin, especially on sensitive areas such as around the eyes. For this reason, it is very key for healthy looking skin to have balanced lipid levels and is why Ceramides have long been a key ingredient in anti-ageing products.
The Skinception Phyto350 capsules are made with a specific combination of plant-based Phytoceramides and skin-loving Vitamins. These two components have each been carefully selected and measured so that there is the perfect balance in each and every capsule to give you the best for you and your skin.
These are a type of plant-based lipids often found in foods such as rice, corn, sweet potatoes and wheat. When taken orally, Phytoceramides can support the ceramides within the skin to promote optimal hydration levels and the skin defences. Their properties have been studied in several clinical studies, with those looking at their moisturising effect being of particular interest for skincare products.

This includes 4 key vitamins for the skin - A,C, D & E which can all be very beneficial. Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal skin whilst Vitamin C to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. Vitamin D contributes to normal blood calcium levels (calcium is said to be involved in many of the skin’s functions) whilst Vitamin E to the protection of cells from oxidative stress (oxidative stress can lead to the signs of premature ageing).
