Info: 30 Veg. Capsules (1 Month Supply)

It's pretty common for people's skin to get kind of dry and wrinkly as it loses some of its natural fat content as we age, which might have some wishing silicone injections were considered safe or even legal again. But there's no need to resort to such things when we can simply replace some of that skin fat with a very well-tolerated plant-based source supported by clinical studies.

It's pretty common for people's skin to get kind of dry and wrinkly as it loses some of its natural fat content as we age, which might have some wishing silicone injections were considered safe or even legal again. But there's no need to resort to such things when we can simply replace some of that skin fat with a very well-tolerated plant-based source supported by clinical studies.

Product Notes:

Ceramides are fat-based molecules that make up about half the content of the outermost layer (the epidermis) of healthy skin,  where they help hold the skin cells together (like the mortar between bricks) and maintain the skin barrier between the outer and inner layers, which keeps moisture in. But as with so many things, we produce or retain less of it as we age or expose our skin to the sun, and genetic factors can also play a role in weakening the skin barrier, so it makes sense to try to replenish it to combat dryness and cracks and fine lines and wrinkles.

Beautiful Skin features Ceramosides™: a trademarked form of plant-based (or "phyto-") ceramides extracted from wheat germ/seed, which is also rich in a compound called digalactosyl diglycerides (DGDG), a natural emulsifier to boost the ceramides' bioavailability or absorption rate.

There have been at least two clinical studies of this particular extract to date, indicating it has both moisturizing (a 21% increase in hydration and 14% decrease in transepidermal water loss) and anti-aging effects (an 18% decrease in wrinkles and 26% improvement in skin elasticity), which begin after as little as 15 days of supplementation and achieve optimal results after 2 months of use.
