Shark liver oils are the source of alkylglycerols and squalene but contain relatively low amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids (EFA). They are modulators of immunity to infections and cancers. Their protective action from bacterial and fungal infections indicates that they should be recommended in the patients suffering from atopic dermatitis. Those patients because of xerosis and disturbances of skin barrier are susceptible for that kind of infections.
