Phytosphingosine powder, also known as sphingosine, scientific name: 2-amino-4-octadecene-1,3-diol. It is an octadecyl amino alcohol containing an unsaturated hydrocarbon chain. Sphingosine, belonging to sphingolipids, is one of the components of cell membranes and a signaling lipid molecule involved in various cellular processes. Phytosphingosine is mainly distributed in plant seeds such as wheat, and its content is very small, so it is extremely difficult to extract. Moreover, phytosphingosine, which is based on long chains of sphingomyelin that can be used as the backbone of ceramides (simply speaking, the precursors of ceramides naturally present in the skin), exists in the epidermis and the surface layer of the skin.


It has a material structure similar to that of the stratum corneum, and can quickly penetrate into the skin and combine with the water in the stratum corneum to form a network structure to lock in moisture.

Phytosphingosine for Acne:

Phytosphingosine powder is based on long chains of sphingomyelin that can act as the backbone of ceramides, present in the epidermis and surface layers of the skin. It can provide acne repair based on skin lipid barrier function, and is the skin's own antibacterial and anti-inflammatory factors.

fter T.Oda identified its structure in 1952, people gradually discovered that phytosphingosine exists not only in plant cells, but also in mammalian tissues, and has various physiological activities.

Xu Fan's laboratory found that: Phytosphingosine can affect the structure of the epidermis, stimulate the expression of more than 350 protein gene codes, reorganize the growth process of keratinous proteins, and tightly connect the gaps between keratinocytes, reorganize the growth process of keratinocytes in the epidermis, and let a large number of , High-quality keratinocytes are closely attached to the epidermis, and the skin presents a compact, smooth and radiant youthful condition.

Phytosphingosine in skin care can be used clinically to improve acne, improve skin itching in the treatment of atopic dermatitis in children, and can effectively reduce skin inflammation and erythema stimulation caused by UV radiation, and strengthen skin immune function.

The effect of phytosphingosine on skin moisturizing:

Experiments have proved that phytosphingosine can improve skin moisture retention by increasing the mRNA levels of filaggrin and caspase-14, and the higher the proportion of phytosphingosine, the better the effect of improving skin moisturizing performance.

Promote skin regeneration:

After using phytosphingosine powder in skin care for 7 days, the amount of cornified capsule increased by 1.9 times compared with the control group, effectively promoting skin regeneration.
