Phytoceramides (phyto meaning plant) are plant derived ceramides. Ceramides are lipids that are naturally found in our bodies. Ceramides make up about 40% off our skin and as we age, this percentage goes down dramatically. Phytoceramides have been shown to replenish the protective barrier of the skin and hydrate the skin from the inside out. Ceramides are essential for retaining moisture inside the skin and have been clinically shown to improve moisture retention, dryness, roughness and appearance.
The phytoceramide we use in Facelift Dermacare is derived from rice. Rice derived phytoceramide from Oryza has been clinically tested to be superior to any other phytoceramide, including wheat. Our product is gluten free!
