Myoceram®: a clinically proven oral ingredient for skin hydration.


Myoceram® is a natural ceramide-based ingredient clinically proven to increase skin hydration and reduce transepidermal water loss across the entire surface of the body.

Unlike topical moisturizers which only have a local and limited effect, the ingestion of Myoceram® stimulates the endogenous production of ceramides in the skin to effectively support the optimal function of the skin barrier.

Sourced from rice (non-GMO) or corn, Myoceram® is free of gluten and other allergens, and is the best clinically proven alternative for supporting the skin barrier leading to healthy skin texture and appearance.


Clinical studies conducted with Myoceram® support several applications of interest with high commercial potential, with claims such as the following:

  • Helps support a healthy skin barrier
  • Helps reduce transepidermal water loss
  • Maintains skin hydration over the entire surface of the skin
  • Stimulates the endogenous production of ceramides by the skin
  • Supports healthy looking skin

Clinical studies

The efficacy of Myoceram® is supported by several human clinical studies, as well as animal trials and in vitro mechanism of action studies.

In human clinical trials, Myoceram® has been shown to improve skin hydration and decrease water loss through the skin over the entire surface of the body in healthy subjects and subjects with atopic dermatitis.

In animals, the oral intake of Myoceram® induces the expression of the mRNA of the ceramide synthase enzymes CerS3 and CerS4 for an optimal integration of ceramides in the stratum corneum.
