Stratum corneum sphingolipids are of particular importance in maintaining the water permeability barrier of mammalian epidermis. Free amino acids also play an important role in water retention in the stratum corneum. To clarify the way in which these substances affect scaly skin, stratum corneum sphingolipids and free amino acids collected from artificially-induced scaly skin were analysed. Scaly skin was induced by tape stripping. The total amount of sphingolipids was quantified by gas… CONTINUE READING
