Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is defined as the measurement of the quantity of water that passes from inside the body through the epidermal layer to the surrounding atmosphere via diffusion and evaporation processes. Measurements of TEWL are useful for identifying skin damage caused by pathological conditions such as eczema, chemical exposure, or physical insult, as rates of TEWL increase in proportion to the level of damage.

Experimental groups in this study:
• None     • None     • None     • None     • None    

Procedures conducted:
• transepidermal water loss test  Transepidermal water loss in condenser chamber.

Mice: inbred w/CC8   8 strains   ♀♂   age 11-12wks   5 experimental groups
