Diagram of the Structure of the Skin

The Malpighian layer is another name for the germinative layer or the stratum germinativum.

This is the deepest layer of the epidermis and itself consists of the stratum spinosum and the stratum basale.

The skin is also known as the "integument", or "integumentary system".

 

To view the location of the Malpighian layer relative to the other key components of the skin see the diagram of the structure of the skin. This may be of particular interest to students of courses in massage, reflexology, beauty therapies, and other health science or clinical courses.
