Ceramides are a group of lipids that are made up of fatty acids and sphingosine and occur naturally in the skin. Ceramides are an important component of the skin structure. They are particularly important for our skin barrier. 

Ceramides in a nutshell:


  • Important component of the skin barrier
  • Effect: regenerating, barrier-stabilizing, protective
  • Recommended use: In creams and masks
  • Skin types: suitable for all skin types, especially for dry and sensitive skin and mature skin

The Benefits

If the skin lacks ceramides, it has difficulty retaining water and tends to be drier overall. The result: flaky and cracked skin. Dermatological research has shown that damaged and very dry skin reacts particularly positively to ceramides. This results in less transepidermal water loss (TEWL), an improved barrier function and a smoother-looking complexion.


The benefits of ceramides in skin care:

  • Helps stabilize and protect the skin barrier 
  • Deeply moisturizes the skin
  • Smoothes the skin

Diadermine x Ceramides

In Diadermine we use the lamellar formula technology instead of adding traditional ceramides.

Unlike ceramides, the lamellar formula offers enhanced barrier stabilization, protection, and moisturization. Additionally, the lamellar formula shows superior performance in protecting and smoothening of skin..Its unique structure mimics the natural lipid bilayers of the skin surface, allowing improvement and restructuring of dry and sensitive skin. This results in more profound and long-lasting effects, leading to a noticeable improvement in skin texture and appearance.

In Diadermine products no Ceramides are used. However, the lamellar formula technology which is found in all anti-age Diadermine creams fulfil the same duties (barrier- stabilizing, protective, moisturizing).
