Curél's “hydrating and penetrating moisture-retaining ceramide care*” effectively replenishes ceramide, an essential ingredient that sensitive skin lacks. It boosts your skin's natural barrier function and protects it from external irritation.
Ceramide care has 3 key functions: it protects skin's ceramide during cleansing, replenishes ceramide function from the outside, and enhances ceramide production from within. This helps to strengthen skin's natural barrier function that is weakened by constant dryness. Skin is effectively hydrated and moisture-dense.
Curél's highly effective “Hydrating and Penetrating Moisture-retaining Ceramide Care” is widely recognized by leading Japanese dermatologists.
* Refers to the treatment that protects and replenishes the function of ceramide.
As our skin is mildly acidic, using alkaline-based skincare products can cause stress to our skin as it washes away ceramide along with dirt and sebum during cleansing.
Curél Foaming Wash is mildly acidic and gentle on skin. It protects ceramide while thoroughly cleansing skin.

Curél's ceramide functioning ingredient penetrates deep inside the stratum corneum, where skin dryness originates. It helps to boost moisture density from within, restoring skin's barrier function. Skin becomes moisture-dense and resistant to external irritants.
Through a careful research of 154 natural ingredients, Kao discovered that the leaves of the Eucalyptus plant greatly enhance skin's ability to produce ceramide.
Curél's skincare products are formulated with Eucalyptus leaf extract to boost skin's ceramide production and restore sensitive skin to a healthy condition from within.
By using skin care that offers ceramide care, you can protect, replenish and enhance skin's ceramide production. This helps to improve skin's ability to retain moisture in the stratum corneum and boost its natural barrier function.
In an efficacy test* conducted by Kao and dermatologists, skin's moisture retention and barrier function show marked improvement after 4 weeks. Skin dryness and flakiness are also significantly reduced. Skin is visibly healthy and beautiful. Dermatologists also acknowledged a high level of safety in the products, ensuring that you can use them with a complete peace of mind.
