Delivering Optimal 3:1:1 Ratio Rapidly Normalizes Skin Barrier Function in Atopic Dermatitis

EpiCeram contains concentrations of ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids in a 3(Ceramides):1(Cholestrol):1(Free Fatty Acids) ratio.1 This ratio is designed to correct the barrier abnormality in patients with atopic dermatitis. In normal skin, preparations that do not include all three types of physiologic lipids, in this optimal ratio, do not accelerate barrier normalization, and may even impede barrier repair.2

Optimal Barrier recovery is dependent upon utilization of a 3:1:1 ratio


Above studies were shown not only in animal but humans as well
