Mary Allan Essence of Ceramides


A microbiome loving, milky emulsion that balances and hydrates skin. Star ingredients Phyto Collagen and Peptides help support skin integrity while Vegan Ceramides help skin retain moisture and fortify its protective barrier. Niacinamide B3, considered a must-have ingredient, is combined with Probiotics to help maintain skin's optimal microbiome. Ideal for dehydrated or very lipid dry skin. 



Ok, we're going to drop some skin care science here. Ceramides are lipids (fats) that are found naturally in high concentrations in the uppermost layers of skin. They make up over 50% of skin’s composition, so it’s no surprise they play a vital role in determining how your skin looks, and how it responds to environmental stressors, like indoor heating and cooling. 

Another hero ingredient in this formula, Niancanimide, can increase the skins' production of ceramides, while the addition of Vitamin B3 can calm irritated, dehydrated skin. Ceramides help reinforce your skin’s barrier and increase hydration, giving you plumper, smoother, firmer-feeling skin. When your skin is dry, it's out of balance, and it's out of balance because it has a lack of water and oil. Because Essence of Ceramides contains both water and oil, it helps restore dehydrated skin. In this lovely lightweight formula, micro-droplets of Jojoba Oil are suspended in Rosewater and Hyaluronic Acid with the infusion of phyto Ceramides, and this combo closely mimics the natural lipid layer found on the skin.

    It is normal for this essence to separate as it does not contain fillers or binders, to remix gently shake.
