Hydrogenated vegetable oil and oleic acid – a multitude of skincare uses
High-quality vegetable oils are particularly valued in cosmetics products. The constituents of various vegetable oils have a range of properties that support skincare and often have a lipid-replenishing effect. Vegetable oil-containing products can also improve the skin’s natural retention of moisture. The oils and fats are often very similar to or even the same as the skin’s own lipids, so they are very well tolerated by most types of skin. This means that they are also able to transport valuable active ingredients and nutrients to the body across the skin barrier.
