|I have a bad habit of removing labels *feeling sheepish*|
I had bought it for culinary purposes but unfortunately, it expired without getting completely used up and I don’t think I’ll ever buy it for culinary purposes ever again coz it gives too much of a nutty taste and smells very strongly of peanuts and I don’t fancy the so-called aroma. Anyways, so I thought I would use it up for skin before the oil turns rancid. Well, here you might argue that it has expired but vegetable oils (not hydrogenated) don’t really go bad so easily so if its only external usage, I don’t really mind. Of course, I’ll never eat it. So, how did it fare for my skin.
Its major component fatty acids are oleic acid (46.8% as olein), linoleic acid (33.4% as linolein), and palmitic acid (10.0% as palmitin). The oil also contains some stearic acid, arachidic acid, arachidonic acid, behenic acid, lignoceric acid and other fatty acids. [Wikipedia]
