Recently a comprehensive review article from Albert M. Kligman has been published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science 33, 197-209 (2011). "Corneobiology and Corneotherapy - a final chapter" was drawn posthumously from a variety of his notes.
Corneobiology refers to biologic and biochemical processes in connection with the damage and recovering of the stratum corneum.
Corneotherapy refers to recovering and care of the stratum corneum by applying a physiologically appropriate skin care. Prevention plays a major role in this respect.
For further details please look at "corneotherapy".
