High levels of the omega-6 essential fatty acid linoleic acid (LA) (Malacrida and Jorge, 2012). LA is essential in maintaining the integrity of the skin’s epidermal barrier and preventing transerpidermal water loss, thus playing a vital role in what is perceived as skin’s hydration and elasticity (Elias et al, 1980; reviewed in McCusker and Grant-Kels 2010, and Nicolaou et al, 2011). Furthermore, studies have shown that LA application aids in lightening UV induced hyper-pigmentation of skin (Ando et al, 1998; Jorge et al, 2012).
LA cannot be naturally synthesized in our bodies, it can only be obtained from outside sources.
Rich in polyphenols, a large family of naturally occurring plant products called phytochemicals (Santana et al, 2015). Different plants contain different types of polyphenols, many of which have recently been shown to have substantial skin benefits with their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and DNA-repair properties (Nichols and Katiyar 2010; Afaq and Katiyar 2011).
Rich in tocopherols (Santana et al, 2015). Tocopherols are one of the two classes of naturally occurring vitamin E, which is vital to skin’s health. Vitamin E is one of the most potent lipid soluble antioxidants, shown to prevent damage to skin caused by free radicals and oxygen reactive species (reviewed in Thiele et al, 2007 and Evans et al, 2010).
