Lipowheat™, a natural vegetarian source of ceramides, is a class of lipids which help hydrate and maintain elasticity of the skin and fight the signs of aging, all while leaving skin soft and supple. The stratum corneum, the most outer layer of the skin is composed of flat, integrated, keratinized cells that are bonded to lipids. These lipids include, cholesterol, free fatty acids and sphingolipids; also known as ceramides, each found within the adhesive substance between the cells and squalene found in the hydrophilic film, play a significant part in skin hydration and overall skin health. Ceramide deficiency increases with age, stress, mal-nutrition and environmental pollutants, including UV light, chemical, physical and biological skin irritants. When exposed to these factors, the protective skin layer is weakened and may lead to dry, flaky and itchy skin. By maintaining healthy skin hydration and quality, Lipowheat™ ceramides may preserve the skin’s fibroblasts and enhance the skin’s youthful glow and smooth appearance.
Clinical research shows that Lipowheat™:
• Assists in restoration of the skin barrier function securing a healthy hydration mechanism*
• Protects cellular cohesion and promotes cell formation and differentiation*
• Maintains protective composition of the stratum corneum in aging skin*
• Maintains peak skin lipid concentration thus preventing skin dryness*
