Ceramide-C, as the name suggests, is an anti-wrinkle product that contains Ceramide, an ingredient they claim is needed to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles. According to their website, Ceramide is naturally found in the skin, and it dissipates as we age, resulting in saggy, uneven, wrinkled skin. By applying the Ceramide-rich formula to your face, Ceramide-C claims wrinkles will disappear within weeks. They also note it contains no fragrances or preservatives, two common factors that irritate the skin and cause adverse skin reactions.
Also unlike other skin products, Ceramide-C actually comes in mini-vials of the signature serum, with 60 of these “doses” packaged in one bottle. This bottle is enough to last for two months, and compared to its price ($49.95), it is a reasonable deal for all consumers. To achieve further credit with consumers, Ceramide-C also offers a 100 day money-back guarantee, allowing consumers to test it out and to have the option of a refund if they are not satisfied with the product. Despite these advantages, however, does Ceramide-C actually work? A look into its ingredients, especially the ones they do not feature, will reveal surprising details concerning this supposed miracle cream.
The ingredients included in Ceramide-C are as follows: Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, dl-Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Squalene (99% Pure), Trihydroxypalmitamidohydroxypropyl Myristyl Ether HO3 (Ceramide), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Grape Seed Extract, Orange Blossom Extract (Vitamin C), Evening Primrose Extract, Tocotrienol, Cucumber Extract.
Despite being its main ingredient, Ceramide is located in the middle of Ceramide-C’s list, indicating there is a lower dosage contained in the product. Ceramide, at its core, is an important chemical and an essential lipid found in the cell membrane. Its main function is to maintain the solubility of water in skin cells, and a lack of Ceramide results in weakened skin cells prone to all sorts of problems, including the onset of wrinkles. According to one study, Ceramide helped increase the softness and evenness when applied topically for a month.
Most dermatologists suggest consumers change their dietary habits instead to restore this balance. A bad diet accounts for 40% of Ceramide loss, and most consumers do not need a Ceramide-infused topical to maintain youthful and soft skin. Unfortunately, Ceramide also does not play a role in wrinkle reversal, and a vitamin that could aid in that reversal, Vitamin E, is not included with Ceramide-C. More vitamins and minerals would aid in the success of this Ceramide-infused cream – Ceramide alone may not result in rejuvenated skin.
- Ceramide actually plays an important role in skin health and has many benefits when applied.
- Ceramide-C comes with a generous 100 day money-back guarantee.
- Contains Grape Seed Extract, which was previously banned by several natural health companies because of its potential adverse effects.
- Ceramide-C does not contain an important vitamin essential for optimum skin care; Vitamin E.
- Consumers looking to get more Ceramide would find more benefit by changing their diet.
Although Ceramide is proven by several sources to reverse the some of the effects of aging skin (although this reversal does not include the reversal of wrinkles), consumers will benefit more by adding more fruits and vegetables to their diet. Nevertheless, those looking for a scientifically-backed Ceramide replacement will find Ceramide-C an interesting option to look into.
