A type of organic compound that lies within the stratum corneum layer of the skin, ceramides, helps prevent loss of moisture.
When ceramide levels in skin decline, water evaporates more quickly and skin becomes dry.
According to a research study published in Skin & Aging Magazine, products that contain ceramides can help rejuvenate the skin to a far greater extent than products containing other types of emollients.
The study included participants between the ages of 18 and 60 who were treated with a ceramide-based emollient on one half of their face and a petrolatum emollient on the other half.
Ceramides continue to be a key special ingredient in Paul Penders skincare products.
