Course Summary

While plant oils and fats (butters) are often chosen as ingredients for their particular fatty acid profiles and corresponding triglyceride compositions, there remain a number of highly functional and valuable components present in the unsaponifiable (non-triglyceride) fraction of these oils and fats. Additionally, there are many useful lipophilic components present in the plant tissues of feedstocks used for many industrially produced oils and fats.

In this course, we will take a deeper look at these lesser known lipids and how their unique properties can be utilized for personal care applications.

These lipid components will include tocopherols, sterols, triterpenes, phenols, phospholipids, ceramides, sphingolipids, galactolipids, and waxes.

Focus will be brought on how the different functional groups of these compounds produce their respective chemical properties, and further how those chemical properties can be used to produce the performance characteristics of numerous personal care products.
