Benefits of Ceramides in GUNILLA® Skin Care
Ceramides are naturally occurring fats in our body that serve as the main component of the skin’s outer structure. They protect the delicate surface of the skin and help to lock in moisture. Ceramide lipids (along with cholesterol and other fatty acids) are basically the glue that binds our skin cells together, creating a strong and protective barrier against external damage.
As we age, our skin’s barrier begins to deteriorate due to environmental factors such as free radicals and sun exposure. As a result, our skin is unable to lock in the amount of moisture needed to keep our complexion soft and supple. A compromised skin barrier can make us vulnerable to external damage caused by substances like allergens, irritants, and bacteria. This can lead to inflammation, dry/itchy skin and infection. Here are a few other culprits that can potentially damage your skin’s protective barrier:
- Cold and dry temperatures
- Harsh Foaming cleansers
- Bubble Baths
- Bar Soaps
- Prolonged water submersion
Can I repair my damaged skin barrier?
Absolutely. There are topical creams, moisturizers, and supplements that can help to repair your skin’s damaged barrier. One of the best things you can do is to use a moisturizer that contains active ceramides that are based in high-quality hydroponic aloe vera. This is highly beneficial for locking moisture into your skin and preventing water evaporation, especially during the cold and dry winter months.
GUNILLA® products are based on hydroponic aloe containing Lignin. Hydroponic aloe vera is one of the only known substances that can penetrate the dermis layer of the skin while increasing collagen. Water or oil-based skincare will only lay on the surface of the skin.
Our GUNILLA® Duo delivers maximum hydration protecting the skin’s natural moisture level, replenishing lipids, and infusing the skin with organic nutrients, as well as maximizes the anti-aging potential of your skins natural repair cycle.
