Within the embryonic/fetal development program, skin is of major importance. Much of the activity in skin development is centered around formation of the epidermis, which ultimately generates the stratum corneum. The present article touches the surface of the structure and function of neonatal skin.

Like you, I have attended an astounding number of scientific conferences and have read seemingly unending technical papers dealing with what most of the time are topics of interest to cosmetic chemists. While we always can learn from these meetings and articles, it seems to me that there is a real lack of technical controversy. We sit and quietly accept what is heard as gospel. While we may not agree, we nevertheless just sit back and don’t ask the hard questions. Does this make sense? Was the test design reasonable? Did they use the proper controls?

In this survey from the literature, various writers describe a model of the inside of a hair strand, showing a multilamellar structure of the cuticle cells, a multifibril structure of the cortex, and a variety of lipids that are thought to be major contributors to the hair’s physical properties. What exactly is hair? Simply put, the answer is that hair is protein. But this simple answer does not even begin to explain the complexity and sophistication of the hair fiber.
