12-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE) is a derivative of the 20 carbon polyunsaturated fatty acid, arachidonic acid, containing a Hydroxyl residue at carbon 12 and a 5Z,8Z,10E,14Z Cis–trans isomerism configuration (Z=cis, E=trans) in its four double bonds.
Fatty acid sources "Eicosanoid" (eicosa-, Greek for "twenty"; see icosahedron) is the collective term for straight-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of 20 carbon units in length that have been metabolized or otherwise converted to oxygen-containing products. en.wikipedia.org

Arachidonic acid (AA) is the second most abundant PUFA in the epidermis, accounting for approximately 9% of total epidermal fatty acids.It is a structural component of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylserine, phospholipids found in the membranes of epidermal keratinocytes. lpi.oregonstate.edu
Oral green tea catechin metabolites are incorporated into human skin and protect against UV radiation-induced cutaneous inflammation in association with reduced production of pro-inflammatory eicosanoid 12-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid. www.acneeinstein.com
