CeraVe Moisturizing Lotions gives you all-day moisture to keep your skin looking fresh and young. This unique formula helps skin attract, hold and distribute moisture in the stratum corneum, the protective layer of skin through the use of ceramides.

What are ceramides? Ceramides are bioactive lipids that are responsible for keeping skin moist. According to Wikipedia ceramide is the main component of the stratum corneum layer of the skin. The job of this layer of skin is to act as a barrier to the underlying tissue, protecting it from infection and dehydration, chemicals and mechanical stress.

Wait, what are bioactive lipids?

Bioactive lipids are are lipids (fatty cells) with cell functioning signals. This means they have a job to do and in recent decades this area of cell research has opened up as scientists learn more and more about what these hard working cells do to keep us healthy.

Ok, so why do I need extra ceramides?

Aging brings with it a decline in ceramides in this barrier layer of skin. The skin looks dryer and becomes more susceptible to outside factors

 

CeraVe can help?

Yes! CeraVe moisturizing cream moisturizes, restores and maintains your skin’s protective barrier. When you skin doesn’t have to struggle to retain its moisture it is less stressed and looks great.
