Composition

Composition of fatty acids - gas phase chromatography of batch 19HV0047:

  • Polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA or EFA) or vitamin F:  linoleic acid (omega-6) (76.11%), gamma-linolenic acid (omega-6) (9.24%)
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids (MIFA): oleic acid (omega-9) (6.19%)
  • Saturated fatty acids (AGS): stearic acid (1.94%), palmitic acid (6.53%)

Composition of fatty acids - gas phase chromatography of batch 20HV0039:

  • Polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA or EFA) or vitamin F:  linoleic acid (omega-6) (74.42%), gamma-linolenic acid (omega-6) (9.33%)
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA): oleic acid (omega-9) (6.76%)
  • Saturated fatty acids (AGS): stearic acid (2.04%), palmitic acid (6.52%)

Focus on gamma-linolenic acid: Gamma-linolenic acid is a fatty acid synthesized naturally by our body from linoleic acid. This fatty acid is essential for immunity, anti-infectious and anti-allergic defenses. In addition, it plays an important role in the hydration and suppleness of the skin.

Unfortunately, very often, the transformation of linoleic acid into gamma-linolenic acid is weakened. It is therefore important to bring it directly from the outside. Only a few vegetable oils contain gamma-linolenic acid in these proportions: borage oil, evening primrose oil is the best known.

Focus on omega 6s: Omega-6s are classified as essential fatty acids because the human body cannot produce them. An external contribution is therefore essential. Omega-6s, represented by linoleic acid, are used in the composition of ceramides. They participate in the reconstitution of epidermal lipids and are involved in membrane fluidity. Linoleic acid helps limit water loss from the skin while having softening and nutritive qualities.

Other active constituents :
Unsaponifiables (1.5 to 2%) of which:

  • Phytosterols: healing and repairing action. They also reduce inflammation.
  • Triterpenes: anti-radical action, they protect the tissues from degeneration.
  • Sterols including vitamin E: natural antioxidants

 Storage conditions...Vegetable oil sensitive to oxidation. Store in a cool place (temperature below 20 ° C) away from air and light.
