Ceramides, specific lipid components of the skin, represent 35-40% of the intercellular cement
binding cells together and contributing to skin hydration.
The high proportion of 7- to 12% gamma-linoleic acid helps protect the skin barrier, as unsaturated fatty acids regenerate the intercellular cement
of the epidermis.
Ceramides represents 40-50% of the lipids found in the intercellular cement
and 56% of the lipids that form cellular membranes.
