Skincare Oils and Free Fatty Acids: The Science | Lab Muffin Beauty Science

CBD
Skincare oils contain different fatty acids like linoleic, oleic and lauric acid, right? Well… kind of, but not really! Skincare oils contain triglycerides, which are made FROM fatty acids, but the actual acids have been reacted away.

But can the oils break down on your skin to produce the free fatty acids again? If so, then oleic-containing oils will disrupt your skin barrier, and lauric-containing oils will be more antibacterial than benzoyl peroxide!

This question doesn’t really have a definitive answer, but in this video I present the evidence that suggests that oils WON’T break down on your skin.

Strap in for some serious skincare nerdery!
