Are you trying to include the best natural ingredients in your skincare? Looking for something organic and healthy to benefit your skin? Look no further than Ceramides.
What Are Ceramides?
Ceramides are a type of lipids (fats) that occur naturally in our skin and work to hold the skin cells together in the uppermost layer. They help to create a healthy, firm barrier and help to keep our skin clear, smooth, and rejuvenated. Ceramides also assist in keeping the skin nourished and moisturised, protecting it from moisture loss, possible skin aggressors and allergens. This means that as well as making sure you look great, Ceramides also help to actively keep your skin healthy and functioning.
Thanks to these incredible benefits and more, Ceramides are becoming an increasingly popular ingredient in natural and organic skincare.
Check in with your skin from time to time to make sure you're giving it what it needs.
Why Are Ceramides Important?
Now you may be wondering, if Ceramides occur naturally then why do we need to add them into our skincare?
There are many benefits of Ceramides and whilst it is true that they are naturally occurring, the production and effectiveness can be impacted by many different factors, such as ageing, hormones, environmental influences, and many others. This can result in lower quality Ceramides being produced or simply just less and less Ceramides being made. By including Ceramides in your skincare, you can give your skin a boost and help keep it looking and feeling great.
Additional Ceramides can also give the skin a helping hand and help to combat the effects of ageing, wrinkles, dry and irritated skin that may be impacted by time, environmental factors, or hormones. Ceramides assist in the strengthening and improvement of the barrier layer or uppermost layer of skin, protecting your skin from external aggressors and irritants at the same time.
Benefits Of Ceramides
One of the many benefits of Ceramides is the fact that it is something that will help with all skin types. As Ceramides focus on the skin’s barrier layer, keeping it hydrated, protected and firm, it tends to assist with most skin types and issues. Additional Ceramides means that our skin keeps its hydration better, battling dry and oily skin, they also keep our skin protected from various allergens and aggressors, helping to calm and guard sensitive skin.
Of course, another of the benefits of Ceramides is their ability to help keep those skin cells stay firmly together, smoothing, and strengthening skin against visible signs of ageing.
Good skincare goes beyond the surface.
How To Include Ceramides in Skin Care?
Incorporating a serum with Ceramides or a moisturiser with Ceramides into your skincare routine is a terrific way to introduce additional Ceramides and give your skin the boost and care it deserves. Products such as our Blue Velvet Ceramide Serum and our Timeless Renewal Hand Cream are our top recommendations when it comes to introducing Ceramides into your organic skincare routine.
Blue Velvet Ceramide Serum
Our new Blue Velvet Ceramide Serum combines Ceramides with Blue Tansy, Plant-Based Squalane and Camellia Oil to soothe, hydrate and nourish skin. Using these ingredients in combination with Ceramides we are able to produce a serum that soothes inflammation and redness, prevents loss of hydration, and brings relief to dry, flaky and sensitive skin all whilst strengthening and protecting the barrier layer to help restore and nourish your skin.
How To Use: Apply 3 – 4 drops of serum onto cleansed skin and gently pat into face and neck. Use the Ceramide serum as part of both morning and evening routine and follow up with your preferred moisturiser.

Natural Ingredients to Include in Your Skincare?
There are many benefits to Ceramides and including them in your skincare routine can only improve your skin. As well as Ceramides, there are many other natural organic skincare ingredients that would greatly benefit both your skin’s appearance and overall health when introduced to your routine. Ingredients such as Ectoin and Chaga Mushrooms can greatly benefit your skincare and leave your skin feeling healthy, rejuvenated, and refreshed without introducing any harsh chemicals or components to your skin.
Ectoin is considered an osmolyte, which means that it helps to maintain and balance the skin's hydration and moisture levels, resulting in soft, smooth, and well hydrated skin. Chaga Mushrooms bring many benefits to skincare, including betulinic acid, which supports skin growth and helps to regenerate and restore skin cells, bringing back vibrancy, youthfulness, and a natural glow. Chaga Mushrooms are also known to stimulate collagen production which leaves skin hydrated and refreshed, combatting signs of ageing and other skin aggressors.
We use both of these ingredients in our Pro+ Ectoin Soothing Cream for sensitive skin. Chaga mushrooms help to boost the skin's resilience whilst Ectoin and Camellia Oil help to reduce redness, protect skin, restore moisture, and bring relief to dry, flaky, and sensitive skin.
Ceramides And Organic Skincare
Including Ceramides in your skincare routine can increase and improve your skin protective barrier layer and help keep skin looking and feeling healthy, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Use Ceramides in conjunction with some other powerful, natural ingredients such as the Chaga Mushrooms and Ectoin in your skincare and you have skin that is glowing, refreshed, and protected from everything life throws at it.
Chaga Mushrooms are a great way to give your skin a natural boost.
