Dragon fruit seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids and tocopherols. This oil has a lovely soft scent, has a light colour and it is similar to the feel of almond oil. The main fatty acids in this oil are linoleic acid (C18:2), oleic acid (C18:1), palmitic acid (C16:0) and stearic acid (C18:0).
The seed oils are interesting from a nutritional point of view as their contents are more than half essential fatty acids. Fatty acids are central to the use of energy in the skin, required to make new skin and maintain function and health. A significant amount of total tocopherols were also observed in which the α-tocopherol was the most abundant.
