Ever since Dr. Oz proclaimed Phytoceramides supplements a “facelift in a bottle” there has been quite a buzz. I must admit, I don’t watch Dr Oz. But even so, I couldn’t escape the press surrounding Phytoceramides. I recently received a free 30-day sample of Review Sano Naturals Phytoceramides for review purposes. As I am always interested in new skin care tips, I took it for 30 days before I wrote this review.
I am not a physician or medical professional, so please realize this is not medical advice. Everyone needs to do their own benefit vs. risk analysis concerning what they put in their bodies. I can only share the information Sano Naturals provided and my own experience using this product. According to Sano Naturals: “These Phytoceramides 350 mg Plant Derived Supplements help restore the ceramides in your skin.”

Directions For Use:
“Ever since Dr. Oz featured Phytoceramides on his popular daytime TV show, calling them the secret to faking a facelift, there has been some confusion surround exactly what one can expect from these Phytoceramide supplements. A lot of people take their Phytoceramide Pills hoping for a skincare miracle in just 2 or 3 weeks’ time. Unfortunately, that’s not enough of a window to reverse time and the environment’s effect on our skin.” Quote from Sano Naturals Promotional Material
I was advised that for best results I should:
- Use a quality topical vitamin C serum
- Take 1 Sano Naturals Phytoceramides capsule daily
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate skin from the inside out
- Use a good sunscreen
Sano Natural’s Phytoceramides Skincare Supplements are not for people with gluten sensitivities. There are other gluten-free Phytoceramides Skincare Supplements on the market.
Video From Sano Naturals – What Are Phytoceramides:
I took this capsule daily for a month. My initial impression is that the capsules are a little large and I needed to drink plenty of water to comfortably wash them down. This may be an issue for people who are very sensitive to swallowing larger pills.
After four weeks, I find that my skin doesn’t look much different–but what can you expect in four weeks? It does feel smoother and is clearer, I had a break out early in the month but it has recovered a little faster than usual. Sano Naturals was upfront that I shouldn’t expect immediate results. Overall, I must mention that their customer service has been fantastic.
Anyway, about those results… My skin does feel soft and smooth as does my hair. My hairdresser complimented me on my hair and skin just today. And I feel more comfortable not wearing makeup and posting closeup selfies on the Internet. For example:
As I recently posted, I have changed several aspects about my skin care routine in the past month. I believe all of these, including the Phytocerimides contributed towards my improved skin softness. My skin all over is softer while most of my new products are concentrated on my face and neck. (In case you missed it, here is the post where I describe my August and September 2014 Skin Care Routine.)

My first question was whether Phytoceramide supplements are safe to take. I take several supplements already, but primarily mainstream supplements like fish oil and probiotics. I did a little research and as far as I can tell they seem low risk. But everyone needs to assess this for themselves. Here is a link to an FDA document on the safety of Phytoceramide supplements: Phyto-derived Ceramides New Dietary Ingredient Notification.
