Laurinovy acid in cosmetology
Properties of acid laurinovy
Protective (protects skin from external factors: strong wind, sunshine, frost, etc. );
In skin care products it is often possible to meet laurinovy, or dodecanew, acid. Its Latin name lauric acid. Thanks to a natural origin (it is developed by sebaceous glands of the person) its influence is quietly perceived by skin.
The product has the drying effect. Laurinovy acid can help with fight against such widespread problem as an acne disease. Delivery of medicine with the high content of this substance directly to a bacterium several times increases efficiency of antimicrobic medicines. The probability of side effects, thanks to proximity of structure of pH of skin, is minimized. Laurinovy acid also has the rejuvenating, tightening effect, helps to slow down process of aging of skin. It does it smooth and velvety, gives healthy shine and a well - groomed look. Thanks to the regenerating property it helps the fastest healing of wounds and cracks on skin.
Use of laurinovy acid in the cosmetic industry
The main mission of acid in the field – high extent of clarification from dirt and fat and ensuring plentiful foaming.
Any person who is fond of creation of manual soap "from scratch" also does not do without it. Addition about 6 - 7% of laurinovy acid will provide it the hardness and remarkable clarification from different pollution. Laurinovy acid is the Emulsifying component, an anti - septic tank, a thickener, shows antibacterial action, aromatic ingredient.
This connection is one of the main components:
solid and liquid soap;
Derivatives of laurinovy acid widely apply as ionic and not ionic surfactant
Laurinovy acid in women's milk
Content of laurinovy acid in women's milk, in early terms of a lactation, in % to the sum of fatty acids on weight (Fateeva E. M. , Mamonova L. G. ):
- in colostrum — 1, 9 - 2, 4%
- in transitional milk — 3, 2%
- in mature milk — 7, 3 - 10, 5%
Antibiotic activity of laurinovy acid
Laurinovy acid (along with sapiyenovy) is emitted with sebaceous glands of skin of the person and has the expressed antimicrobic properties, in particular concerning grampolozhitelny bacteria, such as
and drozhzhepodobny fungi
of Candida albicans
Antibiotic activity of laurinovy acid significantly depends on acidity of the environment. At rn the =6th laurinovy acid affects only grampolozhitelny bacteria. At increase rn activity of laurinovy acid in relation to Staphylococcus aureus and other grampolozhitelny bacteria quickly falls. Concerning gramotritsatelny bacteria a situation opposite: at rn less 7th laurinovy acid almost does not work, but becomes very active at rn more than 9 (Shemyakin M. M. ).
Laurinovy acid has the greatest antibiotic activity among saturated fatty acids with even number of atoms of carbon. It is the most active concerning grampolozhitelny microorganisms among all fatty acids with short, to 12 atoms of carbon, a chain (Rybin V. G. , Yu. G Pancakes. ).
Laurinovy acid has the bactericidal, viritsidny and fungicide activity leading to suppression of development of pathogenic microflora and barmy fungi. It is capable to exponentiate antibacterial action of antibiotics in
that allows to increase significantly efficiency of treatment of sharp intestinal infections of a bacterial and virus and bacterial etiology. Besides, laurinovy acid act and as a good immunological stimulator at interaction with bacterial or virus anti - genes, promoting increase in the immune response of an organism to introduction of an intestinal pathogen (Novokshenov A. A. , etc. ).
