Composition

Composition of fatty acids - lot 19HV0154 :

  • Polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA): linoleic acid (omega 6) (8.80%)
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids (MIFA):  oleic acid (40.55%)
  • Saturated fatty acids (AGS):  palmitic acid (42.95% ), stearic acid (4.28%)

Zoom on palmitic acid: This saturated fatty acid is responsible for the semi-solid consistency of palm oil. It is also ideal for adding hardness to soap. Its chain length of 16 carbons makes it a fatty acid, quite heavy, with a rich and emollient touch and which, once saponified, produces soaps that are very soft and pleasant to the touch and brings smoothness to the foam.

Other active constituents :

  • Vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols): a natural antioxidant
  • Carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene): vitamin A precursors, natural antioxidants, skin regenerants
  • Phytosterols: antioxidant, healing, restorative and soothing action
  • Squalene: helps regenerate the lipid cement of the stratum corneum (squalene is naturally present in the skin and sebum).
Storage conditions
Stable vegetable oil. Keep dry, away from heat and light.
