Phytoceramides or "ceramides" are super-strong antioxidants that help fight free radicals.
They also activate peptide blends which boost elastin and collagen production to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, bags under your eyes, all while promoting firm skin.
Ceramides are naturally found in your epidermis. However, natural reduction in ceramides can cause the appearance of wrinkles, dry skin and poor complexion. Phytoceramides are the plant-based equivalent to ceramides.
The most common sources of phytoceramides are wheat and rice but they can also be found in sweet potato and tuber plants.
