Cold Press Elderberry seed oil contains about 80% of essential unsaturated fatty acids (EFA), especially essential fatty acids (EFA) linoleic acid (38%) and alpha-linolenic acid (36%), and the unsaponifiable fraction in the form of tocopherols, phytosterols and phospholipids. Phytosterols and phospholipids present in the oil reduce TEWL, which is manifested by improved hydration and general condition of the skin, and tocopherols determine its antiradical, anti-inflammatory, normalizing and soothing effect.
Dermatological and cosmetic activity of EFA in Sambucus Nigra is related to the possibility of building them into the structures of intercellular cement, which results in the skin becoming more elastic, improves its barrier functions against harmful environmental factors (pollution, UV), reduces TEWL and as a result improves epidermis hydration and increases the production of anti-inflammatory factors.
