If you've heard all the buzz about phytoceramides and their wrinkle-fighting superpowers, you may be eager to give these products a try. Unfortunately, if you're unable to consume wheat or gluten, the knowledge these supplements are typically made from wheat may have stopped you in your tracks.
But don't frown (after all, that only worsens frown lines). Thankfully, there's a new option available for you -- Vegan Ceramide Skin Support from Deva.
What are phytoceramides?
Ceramides are found within the lipid layer of the skin. They're job is to help the tissue retain moisture for continued hydration. They're also responsible for skin's elasticity and youthful smoothness. Phytoceramides are ceramides found within plants, which help their flesh in much the same way.
Phytoceramide supplements first made a splash in November 2012, when they were hailed a natural alternative to plastic surgery. Dubbed a "facelift in a bottle," our customers became fans of Life Extension's SkinRestoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat. However, individuals looking to avoid gluten and wheat needed an alternative.
Deva's Vegan Ceramide Skin Support
While the original phytoceramide products on the market were made from wheat, thankfully, the same beneficial phytoceramides were found to be within sweet potatoes as well. Deva's Vegan Ceramide Skin Support supplement contains 750 mg of sweet potato powder per tablet, which provides 1 mg of ceramides per serving.
Absolutely free of gluten and wheat, you can take it with confidence. Completely vegan, this product is free from animal products and byproducts as well as the common allergens yeast, corn, soy, milk, sugar and starch. This product was certified vegan and vegetarian by the Vegan Society, just like a Deva supplements.
Tips to Get the Best Results
