Granular layer (stratum granulosum) The granular layer contains cells that have a granular appearance. As the cells die, they fill with tiny granules called keratohyalin granules and so keratinisation (hardening of cells) begins to take place. This layer consists of living and dead cells. The keratin in this layer helps to prevent water loss from the skin. 4 Prickle cell layer (stratum spinosum) In the prickle cell layer, the cells are living. The cells interlock by arm-like fine threads, which give the cells a prickly appearance.
