Sunflower Seed Oil
Helps to maintain the natural skin barrier, supporting its ability to retain moisture. Has anti-inflammatory properties making it beneficial for dry skin conditions.
Sunflower oil has been used for centuries as a cooking oil and as a cosmetic ingredient. It is high in monounsaturated fat, and low in saturated fats, making it an excellent alternative to many other oils such as canola oil or olive oil.
Sunflower oil is a non-comedogenic oil. Non-comedogenic means that it will not clog pores. It can be used on all types of skin, including dry, normal, oily, and acne-prone.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can protect the skin from free radicals and sun damage. Using a sunflower oil-based skincare product with vitamin E in it is a great way to achieve optimal benefits for the skin.
Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid found in high concentrations in the skin. It’s the main component of sebum, which is natural oil that keeps the skin moisturized and healthy. Linoleic acid also has anti-inflammatory properties when used topically. It works particularly well for dry skin and eczema, two common conditions that affect millions of people around the world.
Like your natural skin oils, sunflower oil is an emollient. It is also known as a humectant which means it helps to retain water in the skin. That makes it a perfect moisturizer for dry skin.
Sunflower oil, rich in antioxidants, can help protect your skin from further damage. Also, due to its ability to retain moisture and its ability to absorb into the skin, sunflower oil can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
