Roccoco Botanicals Ceramide Booster
Ceramide Booster is the ultimate in hydration and barrier restoration. This serum is more hydrating than hyaluronic acid based serums and is a phospholipid based serum that is well suited for all skin types. It is a fusion of Abysinnian Oil, Cholesterol, Sugar molecules and hydrating active ingredients that restore the skin barrier, quickly and effectively reducing moisture loss.
Sugar molecules act on the water channels in the skin optimizing their water reserves.
Trehalose, a complex sugar made of two molecules of glucose, reinforces the lamellar structure of epidermal lipids. It increases the natural moisturizing factors of the skin, including naturally produced hyaluronic acid. This results in a stronger cutaneous barrier within 24 hours with results being immediate upon application. It contains a complex humectant blend of classical moisturizers, glycerin, PCNa, urea, trehalose, sodium hyaluronate, and Lipidure, an endogenous synthesis activator. This complex has an intense hydrating activity short and long-term (up to 24 hours). It addresses the different causes of dry skin with a comprehensive approach. Its barrier components reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL) & moisture locking mechanism binds moisture to skin surface. It increases hydration immediately by 70% and has an instant softening effect on the skin. It also increases production of ceramides within the skin.
*Pro Tip* This is the ultimate product for barrier repair. The skin barrier can struggle at any time, and after the age of 20, our skin barrier isn't as able to create its own ceramides as well as it did in its youth. Ceramide production declines after the age of 20 at a rate of about 1%, so keeping some of this product around to give your barrier the occasional boost is a must!
