7 Curriculum Review: Skin Physiology Moisture Barrier:In between the keratinocytes (skin cells) in the stratum corneum (outer layer of the epidermis) are epidermal lipids (ceramides, fatty acids, and lipids) that form a waterproof moisture barrier. This barrier minimizes transepidermal water loss and hinders the invasion of microorganisms, chemical irritants, and allergens.Stratum Corneum
8 Curriculum Review: Skin Physiology Acid Mantle:The very outer layers of the stratum corneum have a slightly acidic pH. These layers are called the acid mantle and function to further inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi and maintain the hardness of keratin proteins.Acid MantleStratum Corneum
9 Curriculum Review: Skin Physiology If the moisture barrier and acid mantle are disrupted—a side effect of traditional alkaline soaps—the skin becomes prone to dryness, itching, redness, stinging, roughness, invasion of foreign particles, and many other skin care concerns.Stratum Corneum can be referred to as the Moisture Barrier

12 Cleanse—a basic need for healthy skin Proper cleansing is a basic need for soft, supple skin and is absolutely necessary to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance.
13 Cleanse—a basic need for healthy skin If excess oil, dirt, pollutants, and impurities are not removed from the skin, they can have the following negative effects:Dull or oily appearance to the skinClogged, inflamed pores that may lead to the development of pimples
14 Common SoapsTraditional soaps are formulated by mixing an oil or fat with an alkaline substance, such as lye.Although they are effective at removing oils and impurities from the skin, traditional soaps have a very high (alkaline) pH, sometimes as high as 9 or 10.
15 Common SoapsAlkaline soaps compromise the skin’s integrity. The alkaline pH breaks apart epidermal lipids in the moisture barrier and damages the acid mantle.Today, many soaps on the market have an alkaline pH and can damage the skin.
16 Nu Skin® CleansersAll Nu Skin® cleansers are formulated with surfactants (surface cleansing agents) that allow scientists to formulate the cleansers with a pH closer to that of the skin’s (4.5–6.5).Nu Skin® cleansers help maintain basic skin health by protecting the pH of the acid mantle and components within the moisture barrier.
