Replaces depleted ceramides to preserve the skin’s protective layer which prevents the loss of moisture, shields the skin from environmental aggressors and fights against premature ageing.
Ceramides make up 50% of the skin’s lipid content and therefore form a major part of the protective layer of the skin which can deplete with age, over exfoliation and environmental aggressions. This depletion of ceramides presents as dry, flaky, sensitive skin. 2% Ceramide + GABA replaces depleted ceramides in the skin for optimal barrier protection.
SKIN functional strives to continuously bring you the best product and therefore there may be formulation updates which may result in the ingredient list on the website and carton differing.
Are produced naturally by the skin, however they become depleted over time as we age. Specifically, after age 20, the body produces fewer ceramides at a loss of one percent per year. Maintaining ceramide levels in the skin plays an essential role in managing dryness, dehydration and premature signs of ageing.

On my third bottle and I’ll never use another moisturiser again. It is so light that you don’t feel like pores are blocked. I recommend this moisturiser to everyone I know. The new pump action bottle is amazing as well!
Really great on my skin. I tend to be a bit dry and this product really adds moisture to my skin. A small bottle goes a long way!
It made my skin very dry, wrinkly and uncomfortable, I used it once and went back to my other moisturizer and would have to say not a best buy and wouldn't mind giving it to someone who's skin tolerates it.
I love using moisturisers that are light and don’t feel thick on my skin and this is the best one I’ve used. It absorbs so quickly and one bottle lasts me ages. Would highly recommend:)

First time using this moisturizer. so far so good, I have no complaints. I love the fact that it doesn't leave an oily feeling afterwards.
