4 Top Skin Benefits of Essential Fatty Acids

We all want great skin. But sometimes searching for the secret to a smoothe, healthy and glowing complexion can feel like a long and difficult journey. 

It can lead us to products filled with false promises and feeling overwhelmed with choice. It can see us spending hundreds of pounds on products that don’t deliver. 

Certainly been there, done that! Do you relate?  

The truth is that great skin isn’t as complicated as it looks. 

By focusing on skin-loving ingredients and a smart, skin-supporting diet, you can achieve that sought-after glow. 

Some of the building blocks of great skin can be found in Essential Fatty Acids or EFAs.

EFAs are a group of naturally-occurring, unsaturated fats that offer a range of amazing skin benefits, whether you are applying them directly to your skin or eating them in your diet.  

There are two types of EFAs:

- The Omega-6 series derived from Linoleic acid

- The Omega-3 series derived from Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

The body can synthesise most of the fats it needs from the food we eat, but linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained from our diet.


This is also where skincare products containing Essential Fatty Acids play a crucial role in helping us maintain healthy, glowing skin through topical application.


Knowing about EFAs  and the effect they can have on our skin was one of the reasons I started experimenting with Facial Oils ages ago, and I've never looked back. 




Plant Oils like the oils that are included in the Glow in a Bottle Face Oil formula have an abundance of Essential Fatty Acid content to support the skin barrier and contribute to a healthy, glowing complexion. 

Want to learn more about Essential Fatty Acids? 

We have brought together 4 of their top skin benefits below: 

1. They are True Skin All-Rounders 

Essential Fatty Acids are one of the hardest working ingredients out there, tackling a range of skin problem areas without missing a beat.

Suffering from dry skin? EFAs can help. Acne or oiliness? They have you covered there too. Despite a common misconception of oils overloading skin, EFAs are great at bringing your skin into perfect balance. 

You will find plenty of hardworking EFAs in Glow in A Bottle. 

2. They have Anti-Ageing properties

Essential Fatty Acids are made up of two important acids, linoleic acid, and alpha-linolenic acid.

This combination is a turbocharged boost that helps to promote soft, supple skin and reduce fine lines alongside other signs of ageing. 

One of our favourite anti-aging heroes in Glow in a Bottle? Sea Buckthorn.

This amazing oil contains the rare Omega 7 Fatty Acid which helps to keep skin firm. It’s also a great source of vitamin C which promotes, healthy, glowing skin

3. They are Natural Exfoliators 

You probably don’t associate oils with exfoliation but that’s just what these clever EFAs can do if applied correctly.

The key to this natural exfoliation is linoleic acid which causes healthy skin shedding and renewal, helping to keep pores clear and your complexion bright. 

Macadamia and Olive Squalane are two Glow in a Bottle ingredients that are high in linoleic acid, promoting skin that feels renewed and revitalised. 

4. They Reduce Skin Stress

Many of us suffer from redness, dryness or irritation. These reactions are stressful to the skin causing it to feel tight and inflamed. This stress can be caused by a whole range of factors from sunburn to lack of sleep. 

Essential Fatty Acids can help to calm and soothe stressed skin, leaving you with what feels like a brand-new complexion.

Ready to incorporate EFAs in your skincare routine?
