¤ Hydroxyproline is essential for the formation of collagen and elastin. When women with dry skin supplement with hydroxyproline, their facial skin is better hydrated, softer and wrinkles diminish.
¤ Ceramides, rich in glycosphingolipids, account for between 40 and 60 % of the lipid content of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. As ceramide levels decrease with age, fine lines and wrinkles appear. Supplementation with wheat ceramides improves skin dryness and irritation ; the texture, softness and exfoliation of the skin all improve.
¤ Silicon is vital for optimal production of collagen and elastin. Women with signs of premature skin ageing from sun exposure given silicon supplements benefit from a decrease in wrinkles and an improvement in skin elasticity and roughness.
¤ Biotin, or vitamin B8, is also essential for skin health and, at the dose contained in Natural Skin Formula, has specific structural benefits.
