Renowned in natural and traditional beauty rituals, vegetable oils are a source of comfort and suppleness for skin and hair. Thanks to their moisturising, emollient, nourishing, or regenerating properties, they are suitable for all types of care.

For a cosmetic use, two features of the composition of an oil are important: its fatty acid composition and its unsaponifiable fraction.
The fatty acids contained in cosmetic vegetable oils can be of two types: saturated or unsaturated. Unsaturated fatty acids include polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (Omega 6), alpha linolenic acid (Omega 3), or gamma linolenic acid (Omega 6), and monounsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid (Omega 9) or palmitoleic acid (Omega 7).Depending on their plant origin, the oils thus have very varied fatty acid profiles, which will determine their main properties
The unsaponifiable fraction is generally very low in cosmetic vegetable oils (between 0.2 and 2%), with exceptions of avocado oil, wheat germ oil, or baobab oil.

The unsaponifiable fraction finds applications in cosmetics for its biological properties since it contains vitamins, minerals, squalene, etc.
