• Optimal balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 for improved skin health • Stable vegetable emollient for baby care and sensitive skin • Ease of use in manufacture and long shelf-life

Functionality and benefits Lipex® Omega 3/6 is a vegetable oil blend rich in essential fatty acids. It contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in a ratio that is optimal for improved skin health. The proportions are chosen to mimic those found in most body tissues, in particular the skin. Therefore it will easily be incorporated in the epidermal layer of the skin, where it replenishes the lipid content and balances the omega-3 to omega-6 content. With the Lipex® Omega range we have developed a line of oils that optimise the amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids with respect to oxidative stability. Thereby one of the main problems with oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly the omega-3 fatty acids, has been adressed. This has been obtained by the use of oils with high levels of natural antioxidants. Consequently, you can formulate a product with a longer shelf-life. In comparison, an oil based on capric/caprylic triglycerides with the same content of polyunsaturated fatty acids oxidises twice as fast as a Lipex® Omega oil when exposed to UV light (figure 1). Oxidation stability tests at elevated temperatures show a stability increase of 33 % for the Lipex® Omega oils compared with the capric/caprylic oil mixture.

Applications Lipex® Omega 3/6 is a good emollient and moisturizer in all types of skin care creams and lotions. The proportions of essential fatty acids in combination with the high stability makes it particularly suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products, since the need for added preservatives, antioxidants, or fragrances will be reduced. It can also be used as an emollient in stick formulations, particularly for colour cosmetics. Formulating with Lipex® Omega 3/6 also becomes a simple task. Fewer ingredients are required since this oil comprises both the base oil and the essential fatty acids in a stabilised blend. Naturally, the high stability also leads to a longer shelf-life.
