Docosanoic acid is a long-chain saturated fatty acid that exists naturally as a triglyceride in canola, peanut, and marine animal oils as well as animal milk fats and peanut skins. Commercially, docosanoic acid is regularly used to give hair conditioners and moisturizers their smoothing properties. As a dietary oil, docosanoic acid has poor bioavailability in humans, yet compared with oleic acid, docosanoic acid significantly raises serum total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations.1
