Key ResultA layer of lipids, which are of both sebaceous and keratinocyte origin, covers the surface of the skin. The apparent composition of surface lipids varies depending on the selected method of sampling. Lipids produced by the epidermal cells are an insignificant fraction of the total extractable surface lipid on areas rich in sebaceous glands. Due to the holocrine activity of the sebaceous gland, its product of secretion (sebum) is eventually released to the surface of the skin and coats the fur…Expand
The mechanism of skin lipids influencing skin status.
TLDR
Further research needs lipidiomics, more powerful analytical ability and high-throughput manner, to identify skin lipid components into individual species, and the integration of lipidomics data with other omics strategies can develop the power to study the mechanism of skin lipids influencing skin status.

Surface Lipids as Multifunctional Mediators of Skin Responses to Environmental Stimuli
TLDR
Qualitative modifications of SSL represent a pathogenetic sign of diagnostic value in dermatological disorders involving altered sebum production, like pytiriasis versicolor, acne, atopic or seborrheic dermatitis, as well as photo-aging. Expand

TLDR
Lipid oxidation products produced by these mechanisms are observed in human skin and induce various skin diseases, but in contrast to plasma and other tissues, identification and quantitative measurement of lipid oxidation products in skin are scarce and should be the subjects of future studies.

The author's introduction to skin lipids, the brain of the skin: sebaceous gland, and atopic dermatitis and lipids. Expand
Skin lipid profiling in normal and seborrhoeic shih tzu dogs.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the skin surface lipid profiles are altered in shih tzu dogs with seborrhoea, and two unknown ceramide fractions were recognized exclusively in sebor rhoeic dogs. Expand
Clinical use of Capilen, a liposomal cream based on fresh plant extracts enriched with omega fatty acids
TLDR
Capilen is a specific liposomal formulation based on a technology through which highly concentrated fresh plant extracts are conveyed into a jelly-likeliposomal vehicle and combined with plant-derived omega-3, -6, -7, and -9 fatty acids, phospholipids, and precursors of ceramides. Expand
Beyond acne: Current aspects of sebaceous gland biology and function
TLDR
How sebaceous gland research may stimulate the development of novel therapeutic strategies targeting specific molecular pathways of the pathogenesis of skin diseases is discussed. Expand
Sebaceous-immunobiology is orchestrated by sebum lipids
TLDR
This review introduces the evolving field of sebaceous immunobiology and puts into the focus the pathways that sebum lipids use to influence the immune milieu of the skin. Expand

Chemistry and function of mammalian sebaceous lipids.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the chemistry and function of mammalian sebaceous lipids and presents a study in which the lipid composition of sebum has been analyzed in detail for about 20 species. Expand
Thematic Review Series: Skin Lipids. Antimicrobial lipids at the skin surface Published, JLR Papers in Press, September 28, 2007.
TLDR
The preliminary results demonstrate potent antibacterial activity associated with two specific fatty acids derived from sebaceous triglycerides, and one of these fatty acids, in combination with a low concentration of ethanol, is very effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Expand
Role of ceramide 1 in the molecular organization of the stratum corneum lipids.
TLDR
The role of CER 1 for the SC lipid lamellar organization was studied and it was showed that in the absence of C ER 1 almost no long periodicity phase was formed over a wide CHOL/CER molar ratio. Expand
Anatomical variation in the amount and composition of human skin surface lipid.
TLDR
The results indicate that lipid produced by the epidermis is an insignificant fraction of the total extractable surface lipid on areas rich in sebaceous glands, but can affect surface lipid composition on the limbs and on the trunk away from the midline. Expand
Thematic review series: Skin Lipids. Sebaceous gland lipids: friend or foe? Published, JLR Papers in Press, November 1, 2007.
TLDR
This review seeks to present an update on the physiology of the sebaceous glands, with particular emphasis on the production ofsebaceous lipids. Expand
Sebaceous gland lipids: friend or foe?
Sebaceous glands are intriguing glands that are found throughout the human body except on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The true function of these glands has yet to be determined, butExpand
Sebaceous gland lipids.
TLDR
Differences in sebum composition are particularly evident when the sebum of prepubertal children is compared with that of young adults, and one difference that may be of clinical significance is the different concentrations of linoleate. Expand
Sebaceous gland secretion is a major physiologic route of vitamin E delivery to skin.
TLDR
Sebaceous gland secretion is a relevant physiologic pathway for the delivery of vitamin E to upper layers of facial skin and this mechanism may serve to protect skin surface lipids and the upper stratum corneum from harmful oxidation. Expand
Essential fatty acids and acne.
TLDR
A corollary hypothesis holds that low concentrations of linoleate in sebum impose a state of essential fatty acid deficiency on the cells of the follicular epithelium and induce the characteristic response of hyperkeratosis. Expand
Metabolic fate and selective utilization of major fatty acids in human sebaceous gland.
TLDR
Results provide evidence that the sebaceous gland selectively utilizes fatty acids as 16:0 is the preferred fatty acid that is incorporated into wax esters and linoleic acid undergoes beta-oxidation. Expand
