New horizons in the development of natural oils and butters in cosmetic ingredients

Application of natural oils and fats were severely restricted due to oxidative degradation of lipids resulting in malodors, color change, viscosity increases, and changes in specific gravity, solubility and appearance. 

Researchers recently described the development of a unique means of stabilization of exotic butters and natural oils, thus avoiding any cumbersome application of antioxidants and avoiding heating, homogenization, extra labor and handling of additional powders.

While using natural oils and butters, one can use either the prperties of triacylglycerol constituents or non-triacylglycerol component or both, as per specific requirement of the product formulation in question.
