Properties and uses:
The main polyunsaturated fatty acids that make up vitamin F are: linoleic acid (C18: 2), which is the major acid with 40-60%, linolenic acid (C18: 3) representing 2-10% and acid Arachidonic acid (C20: 4).
Vitamin F is not really a vitamin, but a mixture of fatty acids. It is used in the form of glyceric ester, since it is less enriched. It is formed by a mixture of polyunsaturated fatty acids (mainly linoleic, linolenic, and arachidonic) esterified. It acts as a moisturizer and prevents skin aging due to its composition similar to the natural secretions of the skin, contributing to the maintenance of the cutaneous lipid film. It also acts as an anti-scaler and repairer of the skin, as it maintains the integrity of the cornea barrier, and in processes that dry dry skin and the epidermis. It is used in oily solutions, emulsions, gels, and shampoos.
