Derived from coconut oil, cocoglycerides are frequently used due to their high composition of saturated fatty acids and, above all, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and to their high percentage of unsaponifiable content (carotenoids, tocopherols, sterols, hydrocarbons). The PUFAs in particular are very important for healthy skin in that they are involved in numerous balancing mechanisms in the skin and in the composition of cell membranes and sebum. Cocoglycerides are very important in sunscreens in that they promote the optimal distribution of filters on the skin, thereby augmenting the actual sun protection factor (SPF).
