The skin-friendly architect
CeraFluid® diminishes in vivo the appearance of wrinkles and improves skin elasticity as well as skin smoothness.
From the formulation point of view, standard Ceramides are ingredients requiring high process temperatures (above 90°C), and solubility to be efficient. CeraFluid is different & unique! A natural oily solvent based on pure components isolated from olive oil (purified tri-& di-glycerides) allows CeraFluid® to be available for cosmetic formulations: it is in liquid form already at 40 °C and it can be easily formulated with all kind of natural oils.
Natural epidermal barrier is partly composed by lipidic layers regulating TEWL and general moisture balance.These layers are composed of ceramides (40%), free fatty acids (25%) and cholesterol (25%).
As in a protecting wall, corneocytes skin cells form the bricks of this skin barrier, hold together by a “lipidic cement”. Elasticity and firmness depend on the moisture content of this layer (”horny layer”).
