The most important structural elements of the lipidic cell barrier of the skin
Protect the surface layer of the skin from losing moisture from its deeper layers
Ceramides in an organised, liquid crystal form, such as is found in our skin, will regenerate the surface layer of the skin and improve the skin’s overall condition.
Lipids in the surface layer of the skin are organised in lamellar form and act like roof tiles, not allowing moisture to leave the deeper layers of the skin. Damage on the surface layer of the skin causes it to crack, lose moisture and become dry, taut and sensitive. The ceramides in NiKEL products come from plant oils and are found in an organised, lyotropic liquid crystal form. Only in such an organised form can they be effective. They will very quickly repair the damaged hydrolipidic barrier of the skin and protect the skin from irritation and loss of moisture from its deeper layers.
