The distribution of calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and hydrogen ions in the human epidermis was visualized by blotting to gel containing chemical indicators and the effects of skin barrier disruption were examined.

Sodium did not show obvious gradation in the epidermis. The potassium concentration was… CONTINUE READING
