Nonvascular layer of the skin. It is made up, from within outward, of five layers: 1) basal layer (stratum basale epidermidis); 2) spinous layer (stratum spinosum epidermidis); 3) granular layer (stratum granulosum epidermidis); 4) clear layer (stratum lucidum epidermidis); and 5) horny layer (stratum corneum epidermidis).

Scarf-skin, cuticle, the outer epithelial portion of the skin; it consists of five layers or strata, called, from without inward, stratum corneum or horny layer, stratum lucidum or clear layer, stratum granulosum or granular layer, stratum mucosum or mucous layer, and stratum germinativum or germinative layer; by some histologists the last two layers are regarded as one, called either stratum germinativum or stratum mucosum.

A transparent, dry, thin membrane, devoid of nerves and vessels, which covers all the surface of the body, except the parts that correspond to the nails. It appears to consist of minute scales, placed one above the other. Chaussier considers it to be formed and reproduced by an excretory action of the true skin; to act like a dry varnish, which prevents the immediate contact of bodies with the nervous papillae, and consequently to deaden tactile impressions, which, without its intervention, might be painful. The Epidermic, Epidermeous, or Epidermoid (as Bichat called it) System, in general anatomy, comprises three parts. 1. External Epidermis. 2. Epidermis spread over the mucous membranes. 3. The Nails and Hair.
