Benefits of Fatty Acids in Skincare

Plant-based oils are made up of fatty acids and other essential nutrients.  Fatty acids are also found in the outermost layer of the skin and help the skin barrier to function properly...keeping external aggressors out and water in.  

Linoleic acid strengthens the skincare barrier and also balances out oil production to help clear up skin.

Oleic acid combined with other nutrients helps to reduce signs of dryness and sensitivity.   

Each plant-based has it's own unique make up of essential fatty acids.  Your skin has its own unique needs.  It's always good to try different plant-based oils to see which ones work for your skin.
