Three-dimensional molecular maps showing the localization of two compounds used in beauty products, sodium lauryl ether sulfate (left) and kaurenoic acid (middle), on the skin of a healthy human being. Also shown are molecular maps for sinapic acid, a food additive (upper right), and C18-sphingosine, a cell membrane phospholipid (lower right). Intensities of each molecule are represented with a color scale from blue (low intensity) to red (high intensity).
