    For moisterising and hydrating purposes its the fatty acids in it, namely linolic acid. Its an omega 6 fatty acid that also has the anti-inflammatory properties.

    Do you mean for consumption or topical application? Well I guess either way fatty acids would be beneficial because it is saturated fats which are decent (good kind)

    Aside from the linoleic acid there is also the popular lauric acid. I think the guy above is mixed up between the two.

    Lauric acid is the saturated fat good for consumption and linoleic acid for the anti-inflammation.
