    fwiw, being extremely hypothyroid for an extended period of time causes thickening of the skin -- a glue like substance forms under the dermis.

  3. Not really sure it is either, but they do help maintain healthy skin by ensuring there are enough fatty acids to maintain the lipids in the skin which can help with dry skin or eczema.
