What else you need to know:
Ceramides are our skin’s natural protection barrier. They are composed of intercellular lipids that act as skin’s defense against environmental aggressors and maintain moisture levels. Think of your skin as a brick wall: when it is first built, it is strong and sturdy. Over time, it needs fortification to remain strong. As we age, we lose ceramides, leading to a decrease in elasticity and moisture.

New fav...Not bad...When I frist tried this brand in my 20's it was too oily, but now that I am in my mid 30's my skin has dried out considerbly and now I find that these types of creams are a god send....It's very lightly scented (smells a bit like grass) but doesn't irritate me at all and absorbs quickly, although it leaves a really silky feeling on my skin - a bit of a residue, but I feel like that word has negative connotations, and this just feels like a blanket of moisture.
