Ceramides: Ceramide is the main component of the stratum corneum and of the epidermis layer of human skin.

With aging there is a decline in ceramide and cholesterol in the stratum corneum of humans.

Our skin is protected from germs and infections by the lipid barrier. In addition the lipid barrier helps keep moisture in. Ceramides play a vital role in both infection protection and moisture retention within the lipid barrier.
