Nordmann Kompakt : Skin barrier
Caring for the skin barrier
The skin is the human body’s largest organ and is built up of various layers. The main part of the skin barrier is its outermost layer, the stratum corneum.
The skin barrier features an extraordinary lipid composition and serves several purposes – such as providing protection against external threats (e.g. infectious agents and allergens) or regulating water loss. UV radiation, pollution, aging and stress can all affect the composition of the skin barrier and also impair its functionality.
In this issue of Nordmann Kompakt, we present emollients and active ingredients that protect and strengthen the skin barrier.
