When choosing a Vitamin C product, it’s important to find one that contains the lesser hyped Vitamin F as well, and here’s why…

Cigdem Kemal-Yilmaz, Chemical Engineer and Founder of Skin Masterclass says, ““Essential fatty acids are generally called Vitamin F, even though they do not correspond to the classical definition of vitamins. These fatty acids, especially linoleic acid, are extremely important for maintaining an intact lipid barrier and its physiological functions such as energy balance, boosting immunity, and the structure of the lipid barrier to name a few. Linoleic acid is found in natural plant oils mostly as tryglycerides. Deficiency of essential fatty acids leads to several negative consequences such as dry or scaly skin, thin and brittle hair or hair loss as well as having an influence on skin diseases such as acne, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.”
