This webinar is dedicated to skin lipids and their role in skin health and disease and will discuss lipid composition and function in different skin structures. The webinar will begin with an overview of skin anatomy with a focus on the stratum corneum. The lipidome of normal skin will be discussed next, emphasizing the importance of ceramides. Our scientific talk will focus on the pivotal role ceramides play in skin physiology and their relevance in context of skin research and product claim support. During the webinar, factors contributing to variability in skin lipidome and ceramidome will be discussed, including age, sex, body part, pigmentation, depth of skin sampling, and seasonal differences. Finally, we will examine the alterations in the skin lipidome caused by various pathological conditions, such as xerosis, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis, and explore the relationship between the skin lipidome and the skin microbiome.

Here is what you can learn

• Skin lipids and how they can be quantified
• Variability of healthy skin lipidome
• Lipids in skin diseases and disorders
• How lipidomics can be used in skin biology research and marketing claim support
