Product Description & Benefits:
This polar lipid will enhance skin moisturization and skin protection, ultimately helping to repair sensitive and dry skin. Use ceramides if you want to prevent skin roughness and increase skin hydration. Many products provide Ceramides but at very low concentration because of the high price of ceramides. You can use this active to provide your skin with significant amounts of Ceramides that will make a difference to your skin. Ceramides are a family of lipid molecules; a ceramide is composed of sphingosine and a fatty acid. Ceramides are found in high concentrations within the cell membrane of cells, but they have more than a structural role. They are signaling molecules involved in the regulation of cellular differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis.

Make Me Heal has partnered with leading laboratories and manufacturers of skin care ingredients to come up with the largest assortment of high-quality active ingredients that are effective for your skin.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.

The skin acts as a protector against water loss and physical, chemical and biological attack. To perform its protective task, the skin must have a resistant barrier. This barrier is provided by the 'horny layer' stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. The stratum corneum consists of anuclear flattened cells, the corneocytes, imbedded in a lipid mixture consisting mainly of a lamellar structure of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acid. An insufficient formation or loss of skin lipids can result in an increased water loss and increased penetration of harmful compounds from the environment, both of which often cause skin dryness and skin sensitivity. Ceramide inhibits cancer cell growth.
