Lipowheat™ a natural, vegetarian source of ceramides, is a class of lipids which are the skin’s natural sealant. Lipowheat ceramides help prevent the loss of skin moisture and provide a rich and youthful glow. Patented and backed by three clinical studies, Lipowheat’s NDI status has the claim “Helps maintain healthy skin hydration”. With aging, stress, poor nutrition and environmental exposure, the protective skin barrier is increasingly compromised. Deficiency of ceramides in the protective skin layer may contribute to dry, flaky and itchy skin.
