i was wondering if anyone has a list of the individual lipids that are 
present on the skin, from both sebaceous and epidermal origin. I've looked at 
a number of papers on skin/sebum lipid composition but they all seem to give 
just the general lipid groups present (triacylglycerols, sterols, wax esters 
etc.), not the actual lipids themselves or any form of quantitative 
Any help (refs etc.) will be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance
