From Investigating Aging to Acrylic Polymers in Sunscreens Sauermann et al. have investigated age-related changes of human skin with histometric measurements by confocal laser scanning microscopy in vivo.1 The confocal laser scanning microscope allows skin to be studied in real-time with a resolution of 0.5 mm horizontal and 1.3 m vertical in vivo. In this study, the authors present the results of a comparison between the skin of an older and a younger group of volunteers by in vivo histometric measurements. To investigate changes caused by age, 13 young (18-25years) and 13 older (>65years) volunteers were examined.

Ceramides are the main polar lipids of the SC intercellular lipids; they play an important role in skin barrier function and account for half of the SC lipids by weight. Nine subclasses of ceramides have been described in human SC; these differ from each other by the sphingoid base groups (sphingosine, phytoshpingosine, 6-hydroxysphingosine) and hydrocarbon chain length. Ceramide content and changes of composition are involved in agingand skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis (AD),5–7 psoriasis, contact dermatitis (CD) and irritant dermatitis.
