What Are Phytoceramides and How Can you Make Your Skin Look Younger?

Updated on July 11, 2014

Why Phytoceramides?

Phytoceramides might be one of the best anti-aging products for your money. If you've never heard of them, that may change soon if for no other reason than this: ceramides make up close to 40% of your skin's structure.

Phytoceramides are lost with age, which explains much of the wrinkles, sun damage and visible skin aging that people experience as they grow older.

Ceramides are lipids. They're fats that occur naturally throughout the body, including the scalp, bones and skin. For an analogy, think of a brick wall. The bricks are held together by mortar. Ceramides are like the 'mortar' that holds your skin together, but they're lost with age.

Phytoceramides are plant-derived molecules that allow you to replace lost ceramides, from the inside out, giving structure back to skin, which lets you fill in wrinkles and fine lines.

Can you supplement Phytoceramides?

There are products like Phyto350 that absorb into the bloodstream. This is very effective, because it stimulates change at the cellular level. Skin is strengthened, starting from molecules in the blood, which absorb into and buffer your inner and outer layers. This permits:

Fewer wrinkles and fine lines - You're essentially 'filling in' wrinkles with phytoceramides.

Less hyperpigmentation - Complexion becomes smooth with phytoceramides because it heals damaged skin.

Better moisture retention - Phytoceramides allow skin to absorb and hold moisture, which gives skin a thick, more youthful appearance.

Stronger skin barrier - With stronger skin, it becomes less susceptible to sun damage - the leading cause of wrinkles.

People will look younger without surgery or procedures like Botox.

The convenience of phytoceramides is great as well. They help people fill in wrinkles and take years, sometimes decades, off their appearance with an all-natural capsule that is safe for clients with no specific health concerns or conditions.

Dr. Oz and The FDA

  • You've no doubt heard that Dr. Oz likes phytoceramides. In his words, they're like "faking a facelift" because you take them orally. They're powerful little molecules that go to work the moment you ingest them, and repair, restore and moisturize damaged skin.
  • They're very well-tolerated. Japanese consumers have used phytoceramides for over a decade. The FDA approves of them too - with a 25 page analysis of phytoceramides in 2004, in which it concludes they are safe for most consumers because they occur in foods and are found naturally in human skin.
  • Of course, these combine for a marketer's dream. So bear in mind that neither the FDA nor does Dr. Oz endorse any particular phytoceramide product. You need a place to start, however, so let's review how to choose the best phytoceramides supplement for your needs.

How to Choose the Best Phytoceramide Supplement

A few things to look for when choosing a phytoceramide supplement

Dosage - As Dr. Oz says, phytoceramides at roughly 350mg per serving should be enough to produce soft, smooth skin in about 4 weeks.

Skin-Friendly Vitamins - Some phytoceramide products are formulated with skin-friendly vitamins like vitamins A and C. These are good to have, because you may see even better results.

A Quality Name - Yes, there are bandwagon jumpers with phytoceramides. Look for a product offered by a label that's been around for at least 5 years and that has a good reputation.

A 60 Day Guarantee - If the company offers phytoceramides with a guarantee, that's a sign they stand by the product and it offers peace of mind.

Note that many consumers report Phyto350 shows good results. The product works quickly and appears to actually live up to the hype of truly 'faking a facelift'. If you're looking for the best antiaging products, you might start there.
