Fatty acid profiles
Each oil has its own unique fatty acid profile. Seatons oils contain mainly the C18 fatty acids namely Oleic, Linoleic, Linolenic, Ricinoleic and Eleostearic acids. These fatty acids differ in the number of carbon-carbon double bonds present in the chain and in the case of Ricinoleic acid the presence of an OH group. The percentage of these fatty acids in the oil determines the properties of the oil.
