Claims about ceramides in plant oils
Hi, my first post here…
I have found numerous websites and products (some of them extremely well known) claiming that some plant oils contain (phyto) ceramides.
However, when researching scholarly articles on the composition analysis of these oils, they do not seem to contain ceramides of any kind.
I cannot even find a reputable source stating that any of them even contain sphingosine.
I have a feeling that some companies are mistakenly equating the presence of c18-24 fatty acids to ceramides. Otherwise I just can’t find the basis for any of these claims about phyto-ceramides.
There are many oils in the list but I have been looking mainly into the following ones:
Please can someone explain how these claims make sense? And secondly is anyone aware of a plant oil that does indeed contain ceramides?
