What is natural human-type ceramide?


It has been over 100 years since the renown skin-brightening ingredient, kojic acid was discovered from koji mold, Aspergillus oryzae, the naturally occurring culture that has been used for centuries in Japan to make soy sauce, sake and miso.

With the discovery of revolutionary ceramides from Koji, the world’s first natural human-type ceramide was produced through the traditional Japanese soy sauce fermentation process.


What are ceramides?

Ceramides are biogenic components found in the skin's outermost layer, the stratum corneum (SC). Ceramide accounts for 50% of the intercellular lipid matrix that makes up the SC, the protective barrier inhibiting moisture loss, while also providing protection from infection, injury and environmental damage.

Why do I need the ceramides in Ceraple?

Both age and sun damage gradually reduce our natural ceramides, diminishing the effectiveness of our skin's natural defenses. When this barrier is weakened it can result in redness, wrinkles, dry, rough and irritated skin. It is possible to restore this balance very effectively with the patented ceramides in Ceraple Luxury Oil + Serum. 

The world's first natural human-type ceramides contained in Ceraple have an absorption rate up to 15x greater than other ceramide variants.

Water holding capacity and barrier function improvement effect is 15 times greater than that of natural plant ceramide.
