Linoleic Acid is a polyunsaturated essential fatty acid found mostly in plant oils. It is used in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and cell membranes.
It has a mildy astringent quality which helps to tighten and tone the skin, making it useful for acne and other skin problems. It is rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid important for the skin and cell membranes.
