Linoleic acid is an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid found in various seeds and nuts (we get ours from rosehip seeds). Used topically, it hydrates and conditions the skin, replenishing and strengthening its natural barrier and improving its overall appearance. An anti-inflammatory, it has wound-healing properties as well. Research has also shown that linoleic acid can help prevent acne and lighten skin discoloration and dark spots.
