Benefits of azelaic acid from high oleic sunflower oil

Azeco explains how it is now possible to formulate cosmetic products for both skin and hair care with a bio-based, multi-action azelaic acid active obtained by sustainable processes without using ozone

ABSTRACT

Azelaic acid is known for its efficacy and multi-action ability to offer lighter, healthier skin thanks to its antibacterial and antioxidant/lenitive actions. It is now possible to formulate cosmetic products for both skin and hair care with a multi-action azelaic acid active obtained by sustainable processes without using ozone, with raw materials in line with the European Union framework defining Safe and Sustainable-by-Design criteria for chemicals and materials.

Oilseeds from cultivated plants such as sunflower can provide oxygen-based molecules such as triglycerides with a much lower impact on the ecosystem than fossil feedstocks. Conventional sunflower oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids essential for humans: 50–73% linoleic acid (C18:2), also known as omega-6, and 13–36% monounsaturated oleic acid (cis-9-octadecenoic acid or C18:1), also known as omega-9
