What is skin?(5) lipid in skin





The skin has three layers. They are epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissues

Epidermis

Lipid in skin
Sebaceous gland is from the stratum bassale to stratum corneum. It will excrete the lipid which is among the cells in epidermis to prevent the skin too dry. The lipid will start to flow at 15-170C and melt when the temperature is higher than 340C. The skin will excretes more lipids in summer and should be cleaned to reduce the burden of skin.
