Description: The ceramides mixture consists of hydroxy and non-hydroxy fatty acid-containing ceramides. Ceramides are generated from sphingomyelin through activation of sphingomyelinases or through the de novo synthesis pathway, which requires the coordinated action of serine palmitoyl transferase and ceramide synthase. They have been shown to mediate antiproliferative responses such as apoptosis, growth arrest, differentiation, and senescence.
ceramides is a family of naturally occurring lipids that act primarily in the skins uppermost layer, forming a protective barrier and reducing natural transepidermal water loss. Ceramides repair the stratum corneum layer in cases of dry skin, improve skin hydration, and increase the feeling of softness. They are beneficial for stressed, sensitive, scaly, rough, dry, aged, and sun-damaged skin. Ceramides play an essential role in the structure of superficial epidermal layers and form an integral part of the intercellular membrane network. They help generate and sustain the skins barrier function.
