Palmitic Acid

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Palmitic Acid

Palmitic acid is the most common saturated fatty acid found in animals, plants, and other microorganisms—including the stratum corneum of our skin. It is a non-essential fatty acid that can be synthesized by our bodies. Palmitic acid is a great emollient and is a permeation enhancer, which means it helps other ingredients sink deeply into the skin.1 It may be drying on skin if not blended with other types of fatty acids or barrier supporting ingredients.
