Ceramides 1 (EOP) and 3 (NP): As eczema sufferers are deficient in the ceramides that make up the major lipid component of the extracellular matrix of the stratum corneum, the addition of ceramides is essential to repair this barrier layer. Ceramides play a vital role in the barrier function of the skin, and reduced ceramide levels, particularly of ceramides 1 and 3 are observed in a number of dry skin conditions, including eczema.
L- lactic acid: Lactic acid has been shown to help stimulate ceramide biosynthesis, improving dry skin, and preventing its reappearance. Lactic acid also stimulates phospholipids (important for barrier function) and allows us to remove traditional preservatives (fewer potential irritants).
Niacinamide: Has been demonstrated to have a number of strong benefits when applied to skin; particularly to damaged skin. These include: reducing trans-epidermal water loss, improving the clinical appearance of dryness and scaling as well as stimulating ceramide synthesis.
