The level of lipids present in the skin barrier can be assessed via sampling of the superficial layers of the epidermis with cyanoacrylate.
Samples are collected before and after product usage. The skin lipids are visualized via Nile blue staining and their levels are quantified via imaging software analysis.
The skin protective barrier lipids are necessary to maintain natural skin moisture.
