It works with the Immune System to help protect your body. The Nervous system relies on your skin to help feel the outside world. The circulatory system has capillaries throughout the skin to help with the blood flow. It also works with the digestive system by absorbing nutrients to then give to the capillaries which flow throughout the body. It also Works with the Muscular system for support and the endocrine system for the sweat glands which help you regulate your temperature. The Integumentary system also relies on fats and oils to make the protective oils for our skin and hair. Important Organs of the Integumentary System are the Skin. The Skin Consists of many layers Like the Hypodermis, the dermis, and the Epidermis. another organ is Hair, which are made of lots of tiny strands. The nails are also part of this system. A Slogan for this system is: 'Integumentary keeps you Intact and Hairy'.
