Researchers have illustrated that the caspase-14 protein – which has unknown function up to now, not only maintain the balance of moisture in the skin but also provide protection against UVB rays present in sunlight. Future planning is to increase the production of caspase-14 that will provide new possibilities of strengthening the skin as a barrier against all kinds of external stress.
