How ingesting ceramides can ease wrinkles.*
First things first: What are ceramides? “Ceramides on a basic level are intercellular lipids housed in the uppermost layer of skin cells and are crucial for skin barrier function,” clean cosmetic chemist Krupa Koestline once said about the ingredient. She describes ceramides as the “glue” that holds together the skin barrier.
The skin barrier, with the help of topical ceramides, “works as a guard to keep moisture inside the skin and environmental stressors like irritants, allergens, and microbes outside of the skin,” Koestline explains. In short: If your skin won’t stay moisturized, you may want to consider supplying it with ceramides.
Of course, using ceramides in creams and serums is great, but you can also ingest them as plant-sourced ceramides, also known as phytoceramides. Not sure where to find them? Start with mbg cellular beauty+.
This powerhouse skin supplement includes phytoceramides (as Ceramosides(R) in our formula), which have been clinically shown to reduce wrinkles after only 15 days, with even greater benefits after eight weeks.1*
But this isn’t just a standalone ceramide supplement–cellular beauty+ contains plenty more skin-loving nutrients, such as astaxanthin. This antioxidant has also been clinically shown to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and smoothness2 after six to eight weeks.*
What’s more, astaxanthin (as AstaReal(R), the premium algal-sourced form in our formula) has been shown to reduce fine lines and age spots2 after six to 16 weeks.*
So let’s circle back: Are wrinkle supplements a real thing? Well, no supplement is going to magically clear deep-set wrinkles in seconds. However, Ceramosides(R) and AstaReal(R) have evidence to back up their ability to reduce fine lines, which is pretty impressive.*
