Why we use it
Phytosphingosine is a fatty ingredient found throughout the skin’s natural moisture barrier, helping to keep moisture in and pollutants/pathogens out. It’s a precursor to the ceramides your skin naturally produces. It’s also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it a great addition to a blemish-fighting skincare routine.
