Skin barrier, stratum corneum is a natural shield against environmental stresses like PM. Therefore fostering skin barrier function becomes a fundamental strategy for developing anti-pollution/stress cosmetics. The epidermal differentiation process should be executed in a highly coordinated way.

The ultimate goal of this sophisticatedly regulated process is to form appropriate skin barrier, stratum corneum. Stratum corneum has two structural compartments, corneocytes (Bricks) and lipids matrix (Mortar) surrounding corneocytes. Recent studies on skin barrier focus on filaggrin for corneocytes maturation and the chain length diversity of fatty acids in ceramides.

In this regards, scientific implications of a novel ceramide, Ecoceramide will be discussed.
