Water Content

Various researchers studied ethic differences in water content (hydration) of the skin on multiple body sites using various techniques (in vivo resistance, capacitance, conductance, and impedance) (Table 2) (4-6,8,10,13,14). The results of the stratum corneum water content of the various studies are difficult to interpret, as other factors (e.g., sweat production, hair on the site of measurement) might impair the quality of the electrode contact with the skin. Overall, the studies indicate that racial differences in water content measured by resistance, capacitance, conductance, and impedance are inconclusive.
