A lot of people are eating predominantly unstable polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) instead of stable saturated fatty acids. Most people are consuming PUFAs orally and slathering PUFAs all over their skin! PUFAs are long chain molecules that contain multiple double bonds. They are very prone to oxidation by heat, light and oxygen. What happens when someone applies PUFA-laden products to their face and then goes out in sunlight? They oxidize and contribute to accelerated aging of the skin! They also speed up the formation of lipofuscin or age spots. Stephanie started a skincare company called Kossma with all of this in mind. She created products that not only aren't harmful but help to reverse damage that's already been done by PUFAs. In this interview she explains the different skin types, the truth about parabens, why to use caution with essential oils, and more.
