Glycolipids are carbohydrate-attached lipids. Their role is to provide energy and also serve as markers for cellular recognition.

They occur where a carbohydrate chain is associated with phospholipids on the exoplasmic surface of the cell membrane. The carbohydrates are found on the outer surface of all eukaryotic cell membranes.

Glycolipids when applied on the skin help control the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL). Hence they are an essential ingredient in the skin moisturization.
