They do not dissolve or expand corneocytes, and as a result they have no effect on the structural integrity of keratin squames.
There are two routes for products that are applied to intact skin: one, penetration via pores and their associated glands, which exude sebum or sweat that is destined for the surface of the stratum corneum, and/or two, penetration through the extracellular lipid matrix that holds the corneocytes together.
The stratum corneum provides mechanical protection of the body on the macro-scale and its barrier function has two components: corneocytes and epidermal lipids.
Daniel Maes, Estee Lander, provided details on the Maturation Index, a new marker of the differentiation process that reflects the condition of the epidermal barrier function as it relates to the structure of highly cross-linked rigid corneocytes.
This retinoid-like ingredient activates the proliferation of keratinocytes and inhibits the differentiation of corneocytes.
The sequence of this tripeptide has been designed to gently and regularly peel off the corneocytes and to speed up epidermal cell turnover.
The association of intercellular lipids with the corneocytes of the SC is crucial for maintaining barrier function and water-binding capacity.
It will include "The skin barrier: a unique interplay between corneocytes and lipids;" "Clinical efficacy of 2% polyphenone (green tea extract) in a hydrophilic gel on aged and damaged facial skin;" "The vexing problem of dry skin" and "Identification of another barrier in human stratum corneum; the water barrier.
Rather than abrasives, the pulp-like product contains micropearls that swell like tiny sponges and slip under the corneocytes to gently dislodge them.
The enzyme, caspase-14, is said to be activated during the differentiation of keratinocytes into corneocytes, which forms the stratum corneum, the skin's protective layer.
