Collagen: it’s the most abundant protein in the human body, found in bones, muscles, tendons and, as most commonly known, the skin. However, did you know it also depletes as we age?
“It’s what gives our skin structural support,” says naturopath Shelley Atkin. “When collagen levels are at their best, you can expect skin to look plump and smooth—it’s when collagen breaks down, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear and skin loses firmness.”
However, putting collagen creams on the skin or injecting the protein into the dermal layers isn’t the only way to benefit.
“Encouraging the body’s own natural collagen production is an excellent way to foster skin hydration, health and beauty from the inside out—with proven ingredients that target the visible signs of ageing, one can expect to see smoother and softer skin,” Atkin says.
An exciting natural ingredient that supports this collagen production is scientifically researched Ceramosides™, proven to deliver the results women are looking for – firmer, smoother and softer skin.
What is Ceramosides™?
Ceramosides™ is an all-natural wheat seed extract containing a complex of ceramides. Ceramides are lipids – these key skin constituents account for 35 to 40 percent of “intercellular cement” that composes the skin’s barrier. On his widely televised show, Dr Oz demonstrated how the ingredient acts like glue that brings the “right kinds of fats into the skin and allows the skin to find its moisture again and become more hydrated”.
