Mariana, very few elements and minerals are absorbed by the skin in measurable quantities. This is because they have to be both water and oil soluble. I don’t know where you can find the list that you’re after, but you can try searching the librarians index at www.lli.org. You can also drop the skin doc a line. Good luck.
