Beauty-From-Within: Clinically Studied Hydration & Wrinkle Reduction


ceratiq® Phytoceramides is a clinically studied, breakthrough beauty-from-within ingredient. Studies on ceratiq support a range of benefits associated with youthful skin – including improved overall skin health, hydration, reduced appearance of wrinkles, increased elasticity, suppleness and a more radiant appearance. A plant-based source of ceramides – a class of lipids known as ‘the skin’s natural sealant’ – it can add compelling value to a wide range of beauty-from-within formulations.

Hydrated skin is happy skin

The stratum corneum is the outer layer of skin composed of keratinized, fused, flat cells that are bound together by lipids. Among these lipids, cholesterol, free fatty acids and ceramides play a major role in skin hydration and overall health of the skin. Ceramides are very important in skin hydration, representing 35 to 40% of intercellular 'cement' that prevents moisture loss.

New study shows wrinkle reduction, better hydration & improved overall skin appearance

A 2017 double blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of ceratiq on skin hydration and on overall wrinkle reduction. The subjects received either 350 mg of ceratiq oil or placebo for 12 weeks. In the ceratiq group, wrinkles were significantly and visibly reduced, from 8 weeks (p < 0.001), compared to the placebo. The wrinkle reduction was visible for 88% of women after 12 weeks. The results demonstrated that skin was better hydrated as early as just 4 weeks. Compared to the placebo, ceratiq was shown to offer 3 times the improvement in wrinkle visibility, 2.75 times the improvement in facial hydration and 5 times the improvement of radiance.


Committed to Scientific Support

Manufacturer Robertet and PLT have teamed up to develop a rigorous set of scientific studies – which now include 5 in vitro and ex vivo studies supporting safety, efficacy and mechanism of action and 5 human clinical studies (2 published and one awaiting publication) with 229 test subjects. In addition, the companies have developed an ingredient identity and quality control program using industry best practices to understand phytoceramide content of the ingredient and dosage recommendations that are supported by clinical science. ceratiq is the only source of natural ceramides on the market with a New Dietary Ingredient on file with the FDA with the authorized claim “Helps maintain healthy skin hydration”.
