Composition

Composition of fatty acids - gas phase chromatography of lot 18HV0161 :

  • Polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA or EFA) or vitamin F:  linoleic acid (omega-6) (60.34%)
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA): oleic acid (omega-9) (28.22%)
  • Saturated fatty acids (AGS): palmitic acid (6.62%), stearic acid (3.32%)

Focus on linoleic acid: linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid belonging to the omega-6 family. This fatty acid is not synthesized by the body. This is why it is said to be an "essential" fatty acid. An omega-6 deficiency can lead to intense dryness of the skin and allergies. At the cutaneous level, this fatty acid enters into the composition of ceramides. It participates in the reconstitution of epidermal lipids and promotes good cohesion of the skin cells with one another. Linoleic acid helps limit water loss from the skin while having softening and nutritive qualities. 

Other active constituents  : 

  • Unsaponifiables including:
  • Phytosterols (including beta-sitosterol) (4000 - 5000 ppm):  improve the barrier function of the skin and microcirculation, slow down skin aging, anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Vitamin E (600 - 700 ppm):  natural antioxidants
  • Mineral salts: potassium, magnesium, sodium, fluorine, chlorine

Storage conditions
Vegetable oil quite sensitive to oxidation. Store preferably in a cool place (possibly in the refrigerator), in its original packaging, closed, protected from air and light.
