Certain oils (like wheat germ oil, rice bran oil, and hemp oil) contain ceramides. Ceramides are molecules that help the hair and skin retain moisture, and such products as CeraVe feature them.Ceramides, I believe, can also be manufactured in a lab.

Are natural ceramides (such as those from oils) more potent than synthetic ceramides? Why or why not?

Have you ever used a ceramide-containing product in your hair or on your skin? If so, what changes did you notice?

Chemicals can be made in a laboratory that are indistinguishable from those found in nature. There is not one single ceramide, it is a class of compounds and many different ones are found in the skin. Plant oils are not *necessarily* the best source of lipids for topical application - our evolution diverged billions of years ago. Also different plant oils have completely different lipid compositions so I don't think you can generalise.

Incidentally, every one of those oils - rice bran, wheat germ and hemp - make my skin break out in zits. Something in them is not for me. CeraVe does the same. Why?

Could it be that you're allergic to ceramides?

Although I've never heard of that happening, I guess that anything is possible.

I'm new. I'm glad for this topic because I've been thinking about buying the ceramide sold at skinactives.

Brown rice retains the bran, so I guess eating it will give a little dose of ceramide? I read a little about LipoWheat, a ceramide supplement, but not everyone taking it had noticeable improvement. Maybe topicals are better.
