You should use them in situations in which your skin barrier is altered. The whole Ceramol line is studied by dermatologists to build the defences of sensitive, delicate, reactive, intolerant, and allergic skin.
Our products contain the fundamental lipids (ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids) that compose and reinforce the skin barrier, the outermost layer that protects our skin from the external environment. This is how they help your skin rebuild its defences.
The outer layers of your skin form a coating that manages and safeguards interactions between your body and the environment around you. When these layers are altered, your skin loses water, dehydrates and de-moisturises, dries out, hardens, and becomes inflamed. At the same time, it absorbs many harmful substances from outside that can provoke irritation and allergic reactions.
One thing that weakens the skin barrier is when it lacks fundamental lipids: specifically, ceramides (particularly in children suffering from atopy), cholesterol (particularly in the elderly), and fatty acids. However, your skin barrier can also weaken after intense and continued environmental stress (such as from cleansers, detergents, solvents, water, the cold, wind, or pollution).
