Lipids in Personal Care and Cosmetics
This course provides a detailed look into the roles that plant-based lipids play in personal care and cosmetic formulations. Benjamin Schwartz, Senior Personal Care Application Specialist, AAK USA Inc. highlights how the structure of fatty acids found in plant-based lipids, and more importantly the triglycerides and wax esters that contain them, determine the interdependent properties of oxidative stability, compatibility, solid fat content, and crystallization types of various oils, fats, and waxes. Take this course to learn how these properties can inform choices of oils, fats, waxes, and their derivatives within different personal care and cosmetic products, including anhydrous and emulsion-based products.
