What are the key ingredients of Skin Enriching Lipogrid® Technology?

  • Physiological Lipids
    The physiological lipids in Skin Enriching Lipogrid® Technology are Ceramides, hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, cholesterol, and Palmitic acid, lipids occurring naturally in the human body and skin. These lipids penetrate deep to help Hydrate, Protect and Repair skin layer.

  • Glycerin

    • A humectant
    • Attracts moisture to the skin
    • Softens skin and improves elasticity
  • Dimethicone

    • Silicone oil
    • Protects the skin by forming a barrier that prevents moisture loss
    • Dimethicone molecules are too large to physically pass through the upper cells of the skin
    • Dislikes both the water and proteins inside cells of the skin
    • Forms a barrier layer on the skin which must be renewed on a regular basis

Skin Enriching Lipogrid® Technology in Action

Clinical Study2

In a clinical study conducted by Joseph Fowler, MD, 31 patients were randomized to receive either Ceramax™ (Lipogrid® Technology) or a comparator (ointment or lotion) at the baseline visit. Each patient received Ceramax™ for a 3-week period followed by comparator or vice versa. There was a 2-week washout between study phases.

  • Patients who received Ceramax™ exhibited consistent improvement in the areas of erythema, scaling, cracking, fissuring, and vesicles.

  • Patients who received Ceramax™ showed significant improvement in erythema and cracking vs comparator groups.

  • Individuals who received Ceramax™ were 3-fold more likely to stop concomitant use of steroids vs comparator groups.

  • 52% of patients who received Ceramax™ were able to stop or reduce their steroid use.

  • Ceramax™ was preferred by 71% of patients vs 29% for comparators.

  • Ceramax™ received an excellent rating from most patients in all characteristics.
