Life Extension, Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat, 30 Veggie Liquid Caps21 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jun 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat
Ceramides play a central role in preserving healthy-looking skin. They are an important lipid component of the skin’s membrane, where they provide protection from the elements and lock in moisture. In fact, they make up 35%-40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the skin’s surface. The problem is that the body’s production of ceramides declines with age.
The ceramides that young skin naturally produces to retain its supple appearance are identical to those present in wheat … which is why wheat-derived oils have been used topically for centuries as a natural moisturizer. But you can’t get enough ceramides from topically-applied wheat germ oil to have a long-term impact on your skin’s appearance. And they don’t appear in sufficient concentration in your diet.
So we’ve brought together these skin-nourishing oils in an oral formula with Lipowheat, a proprietary phytoceramide blend that offers nutritional support for aging skin, to complement topical products you may already use.
Phytoceramides have been available to Japanese women as a functional food since 2000. The hydrating action of Lipowheat phytoceramides has proven so effective in clinical trials, they’re now approved as a dietary ingredient by the FDA. For example, after three months of ingesting 200 mg a day of Lipowheat, a group of people suffering from dry, flaking skin reported dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their skin. These results were verified by electrochemical analysis showing that 95% of participants exhibited improved skin hydration. Better yet, all subjects who experienced chronic itching at the onset of the study reported sharply decreased itching or complete elimination of the problem by the end of the study!

iHerb Customer Reviews
Wheat germ oil is highly comedogenic when used topically. For me, this supplement resulted in cystic acne, something I havent had since I was a teenager. Who knew that "skin restoring" meant "acne again". Had to stop taking it and now my skin is clear again.
Within a few days my skin was noticeably better. This product really works, but it is on the expensive side. It also doesn't make sense intuitively that it works, but it does. Glycolic acid is the only product where I have seen similar results. I won't use this regularly, but will buy again at some point. I recommend, especially if you don't like glycolic acid.
