Liceryl™-12 and Eceryl™-12 are esters derived from linoleic and erucic fatty acids, respectively, and act as co-surfactants with emollient and solubilizing properties. They reduce skin erythema and skin barrier function disruption caused by surfactant penetration in the skin. Liceryl™-12 and Eceryl™-12 are synthesized with glycerin; an endogenous component of the skin known for its humectant properties. Linoleic acid is an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid (18:2 -6) and prevalent in soybean oil (Glycine max). Erucic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid (22:1 -9) found in rapeseed oil (Brassica napus).
