Stratum corneum lipids play a predominant role in maintaining the water barrier of the skin. In order to understand the biological variation in the levels and composition of ceramides, ceramide 1 subtypes, cholesterol and fatty acids, stratum corneum lipids collected from tape strippings from three body sites (face, hand, leg) of female Caucasians of different age groups were analysed. In addition, we studied the influence of seasonal variation on the lipid composition of stratum corneum from…

Investigating the barrier function of skin lipid models with varying compositions.
Age-related and seasonal changes in covalently bound ceramide content in forearm stratum corneum of Japanese subjects: determination of molecular species of ceramides
TLDR
This study showed for the first time that, similar to free ceramide, the level of covalently bound ceramides changed with the seasons, and age-related changes in covalent bound ceramide content were limited in that only the amount of SFA-Cers in the spring was lower in older individuals.
Ceramides and barrier function in healthy skin.
TLDR
No statistically significant differences were found between young and old skin for ceramide subgroups or ceramide/cholesterol ratios, and there was no statistically significant correlation between answers about dry skin and ceramide levels.
Skin Diseases Associated with the Depletion of Stratum Corneum Lipids and Stratum Corneum Lipid Substitution Therapy
TLDR
It is of paramount importance to understand the interrelationship between the depletion of SC lipids and skin diseases as well as factors that affect the composition and organization ofSC lipids in order to assess the potential benefit of a direct replacement of the missing SClipids as a means of treating affected, aged or diseased skin.
Lipids and skin barrier function – a clinical perspective
TLDR
It has been suggested that ultraviolet light as a treatment increases the amount of all 3 major SC lipids, while topical glucocorticoids may lead to a decrease, which may influence the clinical outcome of treatment in diseases with impaired barrier function.
Stratum corneum fatty acids: their critical role in preserving barrier integrity during cleansing
TLDR
The role of fatty acids in the structure and function of the SC, and the rationale for incorporation of stearic acid into moisturizing body cleansers to minimize their extraction by surfactants and replenish lost fatty acids to promote skin barrier preservation are focused on.
Stratum corneum model membranes: molecular organization in relation to skin barrier function
TLDR
The main objectives of this thesis are to investigate the influence of lipid organization on the barrier function in the SCS and to obtain insights in the molecular organization within the unit cell of the lamellar phases in SC.
Age- and Diabetes-Related Changes in the Free Fatty Acid Composition of the Human Stratum Corneum
TLDR
Even-numbered especially odd-numbered FFAs comprised about 21, 23 and 24% of total FFAs in subgroups elderly/healthy, young/healthy and young/diabetic, and compared with younger healthy subjects, FFA composition was only partly significantly altered in older healthy subjects but was significantly alter in younger diabetic subjects.
Functional characteristics of the skin surface of children approaching puberty: age and seasonal influences.
TLDR
It is concluded that, until puberty, most functional characteristics of the skin of children remain distinct from those of adults.
Effects of age, sex, and breed on the composition of free extractable ceramides in the stratum corneum of healthy dogs
TLDR
It is implied that aging causes a decline in the amount of free extractable SC CERs in dogs, similar to that observed in humans.

Age- and sex-dependent change in stratum corneum sphingolipids
TLDR
The present results suggest a significant influence of female hormones on the composition of stratum corneum sphingolipid composition and suggest that epidermal biosynthesis of sphingoipids is influenced byEpidermal proliferative activity.
Stratum corneum lipid abnormalities in atopic dermatitis
TLDR
The results suggest that a significantly reduced amount and/or structural alterations of ceramide 1 deriving from epidermal keratinocytes may be responsible for the impaired water-barrier function of the skin in AD.
Regional analysis of ceramides within the stratum corneum in relation to seasonal changes.
TLDR
Findings indicate that in young adults, the mass of ceramide remains steady at similar levels at various skin sites, providing maintenance of a pertinent water reservoir and the barrier function of the stratum corneum, even under different seasonal conditions.
Decreased level of ceramides in stratum corneum of atopic dermatitis: an etiologic factor in atopic dry skin?
TLDR
Findings suggest that an insufficiency of ceramides in the stratum corneum is an etiologic factor in atopic dry skin.
Quantitative Analysis of Stratum Corneum Lipids in Xerosis and Asteatotic Eczema
TLDR
Analysis of sebum‐derived lipids present in the stratum corneum revealed that there was a significant decline in free fatty acids in xerosis and asteatotic eczema as compared to age‐matched healthy controls, and a similar decline in triglycerides in the above three groups when compared to younger controls.
A possible function of structural lipids in the water-holding properties of the stratum corneum.
TLDR
An additional and essential role of the specific structural lipids for the water-holding properties of the stratum corneum is suggested.
Stratum corneum lipids in skin xerosis.
TLDR
It appears that dramatic changes in stratum corneum lipids are not detectable in normal 'winter dry' skin, however, a decreased proportion of neutral lipids (sterol esters, triglycerides), coupled to increased amounts of free fatty acids, were found associated to the severity of dry skin.
Abnormalities in stratum corneum structure, lipid composition, and desmosome degradation in soap-induced winter xerosis
TLDR
The results support previous studies demonstrating the importance of desmosomal degradation in desquamation and provide new insights into soap-induced winter xerosis, revealing abnormalities in stratum comeurn lipid composition and organization together with reduced desmosome degradation.
Selective recovery of deranged water-holding properties by stratum corneum lipids.
TLDR
The hypothesis that structural lipids present in the intercellular spaces of the stratum corneum, especially ceramide, play a critical role in the water-holding properties of the Stratum Corneum is strengthened.
Stratum corneum lipid phase transitions and water barrier properties.
TLDR
The combined results suggest that increased disorder in stratum corneum lipid structure, brought about by thermotropic transitions, results in dramatically altered diffusional resistance of this tissue to water flux.
