Ceramide NP is a type of ceramide.

Ceramides are intercellular lipids naturally found in our skin that bonds dead skin cells together to create a barrier. They are known for their ability to hold water and thus are a great ingredient for dry skin.

Ceramides are an important building block for our skin barrier. A stronger barrier helps the skin look more firm and hydrated. By bolstering the skin ceramides act as a barrier against irritating ingredients. This can help with inflammation as well.

If you would like to eat ceramides, sweet potatoes contain a small amount.

Hands down the best foam cleanser I've ever used! I usually lean towards milk cleansers (my favourite being the Isntree yam root vegan milk cleanser) however it's a pain to travel with since it's a pump. This is the only foam cleanser I've tried that truly doesn't dry out my skin! It's also extremely good value for money. An absolute fav for travel!

Horribly drying, leaves my skin feeling super tight every time I use it. I used this product throughout bits of the summer I can't imagine how dry it would leave my skin in the winter. Quite surprised by the popularity of this product but maybe it's more suited to oily skin.

Nothing but positive things to say about this cleanser. One of my favorite aspects of this product is that it foams up so well! I was very impressed with how much it lathers w/very little product. So you'll definitely get your money's worth. I also love how it doesn't feel stripping on my face so it makes for a nice gentle yet effective cleanser. It also does a pretty solid job at removing makeup from my face and brushes I felt that this was comparable to the CeraVe Foaming Cleanser, but I prefer the ingredients more in this product.
