Also known as horny layer; outer layer of the epidermis Stratum Corneum
Fibrous protein of cells that is also the principal component of hair and nails. Keratin
The complex of lipids between the cells that keep the skin moist by preventing water evaporation, and to guard against irritants penetrating the skin surface. Barrier Function
Also known as granular layer; layer of the epidermis composed of cells that look like granules and are filled with keratin; replaces cells shed from the stratum corneum. Stratum Granulosum
The spiny layer just above the stratum germinativum layer. Stratum Spinosum
More commonly called the basal cell layer; deepest, live layer of the epidermis that produces new epidermal skin cells and is responsible for growth. Stratum Germinativum
Also known as derma, corium, cutis, or true skin; underlying or inner layer of skin. Dermis
Small, involuntary muscles in the base of th hair follicle that cause goose flesh, sometimes called goose bumps, and papillae. Arrector Pili Muscles
Outer layer of the dermis, directly beneath the epidermis Papillary Layer
Singular: dermal papilla. Small, cone-shaped elevations at the base of the hair follicles that fit into the hair bulb. Dermal Papillae
Small epidermal structures with nerve endings that are sensitive to touch and pressure. Tactile Corpuscles
The top of the papillary layer where it joins the epidermis. Epidermal-dermal Junction
Deeper layer of the dermis that supplies the skin with oxygen and nutrients Reticular Layer
Also known as adipose or subcutis tissue; fatty issue found below the dermis that gives smoothness and contour to the body, contains fat for use as energy, and also acts as a protective cushion for the outer skin. Subcutaneous Tissue
