If the skin had no cornified layer as a barrier, the body would suffer a water loss of ca. 20-30 liters per day. In spite of this, the skin is of course not completely impermeable. Every day we lose ca. 300 ml of water through the skin surface.

The water loss can be measured (transepidermal water loss = TEWL).

This value enables us to draw conclusions about the functional capacity of the skin barrier.
