CERAMIDES BY EVONIK

SKIN AND HAIR DECODED

Found naturally in the skin and hair, ceramides lock in moisture and seal out impurities for a healthy, smooth, radiant look. Evonik’s ceramide technologies unlock nature’s secrets to help you develop dynamic, highly effective cosmetic formulations.

BIOTECHNOLOGICAL INGENUITY, OR AS WE SAY: CERAMIDE TECHNOLOGIES THAT RAISE THE BAR.

At the intersection of nature and innovation, you’ll find our ceramide technologies. With over 25 years of experience in developing green, dermatologically proven cosmetic ingredients, we are your solution provider for advanced formulation. In 1994, we first cracked the code for skin-identical ceramides using biotechnology. Since then, we have been committed to using breakthrough science to help you solve diverse skin and hair care challenges, without harming the environment.

STRATUM CORNEUM AND CELL MEMBRANE COMPLEX SUPPORT. TRANSLATION: PROTECTION FOR SKIN AND HAIR.

Pollution, aging, changing weather, UV radiation and predisposition can all disrupt the natural hair and skin barrier, leading to everything from dry skin and slower skin cell turnover to brittle hair or a sensitive scalp. Our ceramide technologies are programmed counteract this damage by enhancing, protecting and repairing skin and hair’s natural shield. 

Benefits

Protect

Reinforce the natural lipid barrier of sensitive, aging or dry skin to lock in hydration and treat external challenges.

REPLENISH

Counteract photodamaged skin and reduce inflammation.

STEREOCHEMICAL CONFORMING LIPIDS? BETTER KNOWN HERE AS SKIN-IDENTICAL INGREDIENTS.

Our ceramides are 100% identical to the lipids found in the skin's upper layer (the stratum corneum). Gained by a natural yeast fermentation process, the pure quality of our ceramides enables them to work in perfect harmony with skin cells. Because they're identical to what is naturally found in the lipid barrier, our ceramides are ideal for all skin types – even for extremely dry and sensitive, break-out prone or oily skin. 

Our ceramides and sphingolipids help you achieve visible, lasting results. For example: Increased moisture levels and smoother, firmer skin. A healthy, balanced skin barrier. Even wrinkle treatment and fine line minimization. 

As a result of our advanced skin-decoding technology, we are proud to be a global market leader in the ceramides business.  

ENHANCED CELLULAR COHESION AKA STRONGER, SHINIER HAIR. 

When hair gets damaged – whether through over cleansing, harsh chemicals or heat styling ­– the levels of ceramides naturally present in the cuticle are depleted, leading to dry, brittle locks. Our ceramide technologies refill lacking ceramides in the cuticle, unlocking new hair repair possibilities. Recognized as natural by hair, our ceramide technologies are able to strengthen the inner hair structure for optimal hydration levels and smooth, silky strands. Our ceramides show outstanding performance in products for different hair types with different kinds of damages as well as in a diverse range of scalp treatments.
