FDA files NDI for Lipowheat oil

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA accepts without objection a new dietary ingredient application for Lipowheat oil - giving the developer Hitex tacit approval to market the "all natural vegetable extract" in the U.S., according to an April 4 release. The ingredient is "the only source of natural ceramide on the market with an NDI on file," according to P.L. Thomas, the North American distributor for the ingredient. Ceramides, along with cholesterol and free fatty acids, are the lipids that help bind together the cells of the skin's stratum corneum and play an important role in skin hydration, the company explains. Thomas - and formulators that use the ingredient - claim Lipowheat oil "restores the skin barrier function, ensuring a healthy hydration mechanism." The ingredient can be used in skin-hydrating supplements or drinks supported by clinical trials
