A Better Barrier With Corneotherapy

A healthy lamellar membrane will have lipids in the correct 1:1:1 ratio of sterols (cholesterol) to ceramides to free fatty acids. This ratio must be maintained for a healthy permeability barrier, which is essential to prevent water loss and foreign molecules such as allergens, free radicals, toxins and microorganisms from entering the skin.

Although it contains "dead" corneocytes, the stratum corneum is metabolically active. It uses enzymes and signaling molecules called cytokines to direct the epidermis to desquamate (shed), reduce inflammation, increase lipid production and create more cells.

The surface of the stratum corneum is the acid mantle. When the pH of the acid mantle is altered from its naturally acidic state, signaling processes activate the skin’s natural healing process. However, chronic damage to the acid mantle will result in chronic inflammation, and reduced UVB protection and water-holding capabilities.

Why Corneobiology?

An esthetician’s primary work is performed on the stratum corneum through a variety of modalities, so understanding these structures and functions is essential to avoid harming the skin as well as positively influencing skin health. When one or more barrier functions is impaired, the entire system is compromised; this is the basis for a holistic approach to skin care.
