Ceramides In Skincare: Products To Know Now

Getting to grips with exactly what is in your skincare products and how the ingredients work is a great step toward finding the right products for you. At Pure Skin Boutique we only choose products proven to work, made from the finest ingredients and made to target specific concerns. Ceramides are one of the ingredients in BYONIK SEAL, one of our most popular all-rounders, but what exactly do they do?

What are ceramides?

Ceramides are lipids (fats) naturally found in the skin. They make up 50% of the skin, and help to hold skin together and form a protective layer. This protective layer is important because it helps to protect your skin against moisture loss and damage from pollution and environmental stressors. Ceramides in skincare can not only help to protect skin, but also to produce more of its own.

Using products that contain ceramides will therefore help to protect your skin’s barrier, holding in moisture, promoting smoother, firmer, plumper skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.

How to help compromised skin

What products contain ceramides?


A hero for everyday use, this product is not only good for protecting but for calming skin, too. It contains the active calming skincare ingredient black oat, which provides deep moisturising and gives your skin a vitality you’ll feel immediately. Provitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and biotin combine with a maximum amount of rich ceramides to help your skin create a seal of freshness which protects it from environmental damage and will also help guard against further irritation. It will help to seal in moisture for smoother, plumper, more healthy-looking skin.
