Epax launches Omega-11 cetoleic acid

Epax has launched a new product that derives its benefits from cetoleic acid – an ingredient outside the traditional Omega-3 category.

The marine lipid innovator specializes in high-purity, condition-specific EPA and DHA products for nutraceuticals. However, its new Epax® NovusLipid portfolio features less familiar ingredients.

The first product from the range is EPAX® Cetoleic 10, which contains cetoleic acid – an Omega-11 marine lipid – and gondoic acid (Omega-9). Rich in long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids (LC-MUFAs), new Epax research indicates that it may have particular benefits for skin health.
