What are Omega 7 Fatty Acids?

Omega 7 Fatty Acids are sustainably extracted from Nannochloropsis Algae.

These healthy fats have been found to promote skin health and can provide a youthful appearance when included in advanced skin care formulations.

Here are ten leading skin care benefits of Palmitoleic Acid, an Omega 7 Fatty Acid extracted from Nannochloropsis Algae:

  1. Moisturises skin and enhances skin hydration.
  2. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Increases skin elasticity and firmness.
  4. Boosts collagen production.
  5. Calms inflammation and soothes irritated skin.
  6. Brightens and evens skin tone.
  7. Protects against environmental damage.
  8. Improves skin texture and smoothness.
  9. Helps to heal and repair damaged skin.
  10. Delivers essential nutrients and antioxidants to the skin.

Nannochloropsis Algae use Omega 7 fatty acids as a source of energy and for their own survival in various ways.

Omega 7 fatty acids are important components of the cell membrane in algae, which act as a barrier to protect the cell which survives in very harsh environmental conditions and regulate the exchange of substances with the environment.

They also play a crucial role in maintaining membrane fluidity and stability, which is essential for the cell to function properly.

In addition to their structural role, Omega 7 fatty acids also serve as a source of energy for algae. During photosynthesis, algae use sunlight to produce energy in the form of glucose. This glucose is then converted into lipids, including omega 7 fatty acids, which are stored in the cell for later use. When the cell requires energy, these lipids are broken down, releasing energy for the cell to use.

Furthermore, omega 7 fatty acids in algae also help to protect the cell from environmental stressors such as high salinity, high temperature, and UV radiation.

These stressors can cause damage to the cell membrane, leading to cell death. However, omega 7 fatty acids help to maintain the integrity of the cell membrane and protect it from damage caused by these stressors.

Overall, omega 7 fatty acids are crucial for the survival of algae as they provide structural support, a source of energy, and protection against environmental stressors.

Certain advanced skin care formulations include this ingredient for the above reasons.

Kalōnology's Advanced Skin Recovery Serum, once such product is specifically formulated to repair and restore damaged skin. It contains a powerful combination of Perfluorodecalin and Perfluorohexane, which are liquid oxygen compounds, along with Vitamin C and E oils at a concentration of 3%. The serum's liquid oxygen formulation is heavier than water, allowing it to penetrate the skin's epidermis quickly.

This process delivers oxygen and neutralises carbon dioxide, optimising skin metabolism, and speeding up skin renewal from deep within the dermis layers.

The Palmitoleic Acid extracted from Nannochloropsis Algae in the formula delivers optimum levels of Omega 3 and 7 to protect against oxidative stress on DNA and repair cell membranes damaged by environmental and other aging factors.

Additionally, the formula includes Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant extracted from Haematococcus Algae.

Astaxanthin is known for its potency, being 65 times more potent than Ascorbic Acid, 800 times more efficient than Co-Q10 in recycling Vitamin C, and 550 times more powerful than Green Tea extracts.
