The Sweat Glands
Our skin is covered in sweat glands that produce sweat.
Sweat consists mainly of water, but it also contains salts and waste products.
When sweat is secreted through pores in the skin to keep us cool, the waste products are eliminated. That is why sweat glands are considered part of the excretory system.
The pores in our skin are very small openings which allow the sweat to leave our body.
Sweat glands are long tubes found under the surface of the skin. Each sweat gland connects to a pore.
