What are Fatty Acids?

Fatty Acids are long strings of hydrocarbons with a carboxylic acid functional group on one end. This means that they can act as hydrogen bond acceptors and donors, making them perfect for hydrogen bonding. What does this have to do with skincare? Ingredients that can participate in hydrogen bonding can make for high-quality humectants. A humectant moisturizer contains ingredients that sit on the skin where they grab onto water and keep it from evaporating. So, fatty acids are great for keeping the skin hydrated and are an excellent ingredient choice for a first-rate facial moisturizer.

Key Components

Vitamin E

  • Vitamin E is a powerful ingredient when it comes to skincare. It is a barrier booster that seals in moisture, smooths skin, and is an antioxidant. It keeps lipids fresh in the skin, which helps keep the skin’s protective barrier intact, allowing for long-lasting moisture retention between skin cells.

Beta Carotene

  • Biological precursors are inactive substances that the body can convert into active ones. Beta Carotene is a precursor to vitamin A. It enhances the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. Beta carotene also helps neutralize free radicals and protects against UVA light damage.

Omega Fatty Acids

  • Omega fatty acids are a particular type of fatty acid called an essential fatty acid (EFA). EFAs are integral for good health but can’t be produced by the body itself. The most beneficial EFAs for the skin are linoleic acid (omega-6), alpha-linoleic acid (omega-3), and oleic acid (omega-9). They act as building blocks in skin cells, helping to strengthen and repair the skin for a smoother, more youthful complexion.
