The Matrix: essential for nail growth

The nails are an essential component of our fingers, play a protective role and often reflect our state of health. Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will reveal to you the matrix that is important for nail growth. Just keep reading!

On the surface, the nail is made up of a rigid layer of keratin and mineral salts such as calcium, sodium, magnesium, etc. This rigid Keratin plate, also called “nail plate” rests on a very thin skin called the nail bed which gives it its pink tint and ensures its adhesion.

At the base of the nail, protected under the epidermis, is the nail matrix. It is partly visible by transparency under their surface in the shape of a small white crescent called a lunule. It is within the matrix that the cells multiply and become loaded with keratin, thus giving a solid and uniform structure to our nails.

Small skins at the base of the nails, called “cuticles”, ensure the protection of the matrix. They form a tight barrier at the junction of the keratin plaque, preventing water and any bacteria from entering. As you will have understood, the nails are alive, fragile and complex in their anatomical structure. Each of its parts has a role to play and specific needs to maintain good health.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for nails.
