Fatty acids are wonderful substances spread onto the skin to hold in moisture and keep water loss to a minimum; and are not to be thought of as a "burning" acid, but rather as mild emollient acids. Note in the mink composition above, the total unsaturated fatty acids in mink oil account for more than 75% of the fatty acids content.
Mink Oil is the closest in structure to human sebum, (the oil producing glands found under human skin). While other oils and skin care products are absorbed through the epidermis layer of the skin, mink oil is absorbed through the pores.
