What Are Ceramides?

CeraVe Ceamides

Ceramides make up 50% of the skin barrier

Ceramides are lipids (oils) found naturally in skin and are essential in supporting the skin barrier and retaining moisture. All CeraVe products are enriched with ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II to help protect skin’s natural barrier.

Ceramides restore and hydrate

When ceramide levels are low, the skin barrier is weakened, allowing moisture to escape from skin. Applying ceramides directly to skin helps protect its barrier and retain moisture.
