The skin acts as a barrier to protect the body from excessive water loss and from penetration by foreign substances and pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
The optimal state of the skin is characterized by a balanced ratio of skin lipids to skin moisture.
The skin health depends largely on moisture retention provided by the stratum corneum, the outer layer of the epidermis.
The weakening or failure of this natural barrier can be caused by sun, dry air, harsh soaps, free radical damage or the slowdown of cell metabolism with aging. The result is a change on the lipid composition of the epidermis and reduced moisture retention capability.
