Phytoceramides for Aging Skin? -- woman looking at skin up close in mirror


Phytoceramides (or "plant" ceramides) are waxy lipids derived from plants such as wheat, rice and sweet potatoes. Supplements containing phytoceramides are promoted to hydrate and "plump" the skin for a more youthful appearance. Overall, there are few studies on the effects of phytoceramide supplements on aging skin or for reducing wrinkles, although small studies suggest certain branded ceramide ingredients, such as Lipowheat or Ceratiq (found in HyaCera by Ritual), as well as SkinCera, may have benefits.
