Abstract
Quantitative thin-layer chromatography was employed for the analysis of forehead surface lipid from adult males over periods of up to fourteen months. For each subject the lipid composition remained relatively constant. Large differences between individuals were observed in the degree of hydrolysis of triglycerides to free fatty acids. Cholesterol, cholesterol esters, wax esters and squalene did not vary appreciably between different individuals.
