Skin Irritation and Dryness

“The skin is the largest organ of the body and is the primary line of defense against chemical, environmental, infectious and mechanical stressors. Orderly maturation of the epidermis is essential for a normal stratum corneum. This visible organ, reflecting the general health of the person, is metabolically very active with biosensors and responds to many stimuli including humidity and chemicals. Average turnover rate for the epidermis is 39 days. A fully functional and mature epithelium is the ultimate defense of our bodies. Compromise to this line of defense is considered significant in ability to cause damage.” (Fore-Pfliger, 2004)
