About this book

Lipids and Skin Health is the first effort to summarize and review the studies, ideas, and research that link lipid metabolism to the largest organ of our body, the skin.  The book covers the fundamental biology of the skin, and the major involvement of the transcriptional factors that govern lipid synthesis and the bioactive lipids in this intriguing organ. All layers of skin are presented, as well as their relevant lipids from the epidermis to dermis and even to the hypodermis.

The important and unique-to-skin biological pathways are laid out, with a special focus on the various models that demonstrate the essential role of lipid synthesis in skin pathophysiology. The use of lipids in the cosmetic industry is emphasized, and last but not least the involvement of lipids in the clinical setting is also discussed.  This book will appeal to healthcare professionals, researchers and dermatology professionals, and will help them to brainstorm new products and opportunities that will target the emerging importance of lipid metabolism in skin for acne, aging, and healthy skin.
