Description of Ceramide

Ceramide is a nature-identical molecule. It is based upon the sphinganines group, which has been identified in natural hair lipids. Ceramide is also one of the lipids that produce the multilamellar layers of the stratum corneum barrier. These lipids contribute to controlling water permeability and maintaining skin conditions without being occlusive.

Ceramides are a family of waxy lipid molecules. A ceramide is composed of sphingosine and a fatty acid. Ceramides are found in high concentrations within the cell membrane of eukaryotic cells since they are component lipids that makeup sphingomyelin, one of the major lipids in the lipid bilayer.
