How to characterize skin barrier ?

Epidermal differenciation triggers to the formation of apoptotic cells, corenocytes more or less cohesive. One of the main role of these cells is to regulate epidermis permeability. The barrier function is due to the accumulation of lipids (free fatty acids, cholesterol, ceramides) inside intercorneocytic spaces organized in stacks. This lipid matrix acts as a cement in the cell-cell cohesion and has a crucial rôle in protecting skin.
