The stratum corneum requires ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids to provide the cutaneous permeability barrier. The lipids are organized in intercellular membranes exhibiting short- and long-periodicity lamellar phases. In recent years, the phase behavior of barrier lipid mixtures has been studied in vitro. The relationship of human stratum corneum lipid composition to membrane organization in vivo, however, has not been clearly established. Furthermore, the special function of the… CONTINUE READING
