Granted Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules are not new, in fact they have been around since 1990, but since I was pretty young in 1990, they are new to me. OK, that’s not entirely true. I remember my mother using them, but I thought she took them orally. What did I know? Well now I’m a lot older and a little bit wiser (just a little bit). These things are pure liquid gold! Line erasing liquid gold.
In 1990, Elizabeth Arden researchers, searching for The Fountain of Youth, found that the natural production of Ceramides, collagen, elastin and essential nutrients like calcium all contribute to skin’s healthy look. Yet they can be compromised by age and the environment. Ceramides, which comprise 50% of essential lipids found in the skin’s barrier layer, are critical because they help maintain the integrity of skin’s first line of defense against aging signs. This research led Elizabeth Arden to develop bio-engineered, skin identical Ceramides, and create pure, potent pre-measured single dose capsules to deliver these precious and protective elements to skin. Today Ceramide Gold Capsules are the world’s leading capsule technology.
Art Pellegrino, Vice President Research and Development Elizabeth Arden, explains, “the barrier layer is the skin you see. A healthy barrier means strong, smooth, healthy looking skin. Loss of skin’s natural ceramides in the barrier layer can lead to a loss of moisture, roughness, fine lines and wrinkles and also allow outside irritants to get into the skin.”
Each single dose capsule delivers a concentrated application of skin-essential Ceramide benefits in the most efficient way and because they are airtight and sealed for effectiveness it eliminates the need for preservatives and emulsifiers. They contain Vitamin E to condition skin and protect from environmental stress. Borage Seed Extract soothes and calms sensitive skin. After I wash my face in the evening (but you can also use these day and night) I open a capsule and apply it to my face and neck and the feeling is indescribable. Like I am applying youth to my face. Instantly. My skin is immediately retexturized and softer and smoother, even when I wake up in the morning. Another bonus is that almost overnight my skin had a more even-toned appearance! I’m not kidding, I am seriously hooked. Why didn’t my mother tell me about these?
