The cell membrane - the outer layer in animal cells and the layer beneath the cell wall in plants that is made up of a double layer of phospolipid molecules. The term semipermeable means that the outer layer only allows certain substances into and out of the cell, not everything.

What does a cell surface membrane do?

Cell membrane is the living outermost component of cell. It helps in protecting cell from mechanical shocks and also provide a confined shape and structure to the cell.
