Skin care facts
The skin is the largest organ of the human being with about 1.5 - 2 m² (adults) and accounts for about 1/6 of the body weight.
It consists of three main layers:
- Upper skin (epidermis)
- Sclera (Corium)
- Lower skin (subcutis)
The epidermis is the outermost contact layer of the body to its environment. Depending on the part of the body, it is between 0.03 - 4 mm thick.
The skin has a multitude of tasks to fulfil: It reports heat, cold, pressure, touch, pain, regulates temperature, protects against mechanical wear, heat, cold and dehydration.
Overall, the skin is one of our most important organs. That is why it is all the more important to counteract its damage and disease caused by harmful external influences with a skin protection and skin care cream.

Our skin is exposed to a wide variety of stresses in everyday life. Environmental and weather influences as well as various everyday situations put a strain on the largest human organ. Therefore, the skin must be regularly protected and cared for. This is particularly recommended in the case of extraordinary stresses, such as household chores, frequent bathing or showering as well as sunbathing and the cold in winter.
The correct daily use of a high quality skin care product is the best guarantee for healthy skin.
