The outermost layer of the skin is called the Epidermis
The most common form of skin cancer is Basal cell carcinoma
A group of tissues that performs a specific function is called an Organ

The cells producing the pigment responsible for skin color are the Melanocytes
The protein that helps protect the skin and underlying tissue is Keratin
"Subcutaneous tissue anchors the dermis to underlying structures and acts as an insulator therefore helping to prevent heat loss."
