Fats and oils are ubiquitous in personal care and cosmetic formulations. Here we’ll go through a brief overview of how the molecular structure of triglycerides, and the fatty acids that comprise them, determine the interdependent properties of oxidative stability, melt profile, and compatibility of different oils and fats. Knowing how these properties determine the unique characteristics of particular oils and fats can help us to make better choices for different product applications
