The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of human epidermal stratum corneum as protein model soils for detergency test. The stratum corneum was collected by scraping of the skin and purified with solvent. The results obtained were as follows: 1. Purified stratum corneum contained $92.38\%$ of crude protein. 2. In the amino acid compositions, contents of glycine, glutamic acid and serine were high and methionine and cystine were low. They were similar to fibrous $\alpha$-keratin consisted of stratum corneum. Whereas the content of polar amino acids was decreased, that of nonpolar amino acids was increased after enzyme hydrolysis. 3. The hydrolysis of stratum corneum with enzyme increased muck at initial reaction time and levelled off in 4$\~$6 hours. The hydrolysis with enzyme was improved effectively at its optimum temperature and pH. 4. The hydrolysis of stratum corneum with enzyme increased by the addition of surfactants. The order of compatibility with enzyme was in the order of Triton X-100>AOS>LAS.
