10 Glands of the Skin Sudoriferous Glands (Sweat Glands)
Sebaceous Glands (Oil Glands)

11 Sudoriferous Glands (Sweat Glands)
Glands secrete sweat - a mixture of: water - salts - amino acids ammonia - urea - uric acid sugar -lactic acid -ascorbic acid Primary function - regulates body temperature by evaporation of water Eliminates some waste products


13 Sebaceous Glands Oil glands usually associated with hair follicles
Secrete an oily substance called sebum a mixture of fats, cholesterol, protein and inorganic salts Keeps hair from drying out and becoming brittle Keeps skin soft and pliable Inhibits growth of certain bacteria


15 Hair Composed of dead (Keratinized) skin cells
Primary function is protection guards the scalp from injury and sunlight eyebrows - eyelashes protect the eye ears and nostrils keep out foreign objects Helps regulate body temperature Touch receptors associated with hair follicles
