Supports skin hydration and firmness

Without a proper barrier the skin can lose moisture and dry out quickly, a phenomenon referred to as transepidermal water loss. Fats like ceramides provide an oil barrier that helps keep moisture locked in. In two recent studies, participants who took ceramides showed significant improvement in skin hydration and elasticity, which are two key factors that contribute to the appearance of wrinkles.*

Helps reduce hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, forms excess deposits in the skin, often as a result of sun exposure. Research has shown that ceramides can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help skin regenerate naturally and support even skin tone.*

While most ceramide supplements are derived from wheat, ours is a gluten-free extract made from rice. We source our ceramides from rice grown in local farms across Japan, where traditional farming practices require sharing harvesting resources to grow crops as a community.
