Ceramide Complex is a Skin-identical synergistic lipid concentrate for enhanced skin moisturization and protection through restoring the protective function of skin and scalp. A concentrated mix of different types of ceramides, cholesterol, free fatty acids, and phytosphingosine makes it an ideal ingredient for personal care products with unique restoring capabilities.
Compared to ceramde extract there are studies behind it for anti-aging benefits
The Complex is more for luxury brands.

Add in the cool down phase before the homogenization step. It can result in a loss of viscosity. The reason for this is a rearrangement of the liquid crystalline structures. But the emulsion is not necessarily less stable in spite of the lower viscosity. To increase the viscosity it is suggested to increase the amount of consistency enhancer, e. g. the amount of Stearyl Alcohol. Since ceramide complex contains an anionic surfactant as a liposome builder cationic emulsifier systems should be avoided due to possible interactions.
Shelf life: 12 months, properly stored, in sealed container.
This product should be added to a formulation at the recommended usage rate.
