Which waste product does the skin get rid of?

The skin plays a role in excretion through the production of sweat by sweat glands. Sweating eliminates excess water and salts, as well as a small amount of urea, a byproduct of protein catabolism. The liver is a very important organ of excretion. The liver breaks down many substances in the blood, including toxins.
