Sunflower oil is a rich natural source of Vitamin E, a skin-moisturising antioxidant. This oil is also rich in linoleic acid (Omega 6), an essential fatty acid which works to nourish the skin, support the natural barrier, and provide some anti-inflammatory benefits.
Sunflower Oil is a vegetable oil derived from sunflower seeds (Helianthus annuus). In skincare, it is used for its potential moisturizing, nourishing, and skin-soothing properties.
Sunflower oil offers benefits such as: - Provides lightweight and non-greasy moisture to the skin, helping to improve skin hydration and maintain a soft and supple complexion. - Offers emollient properties, creating a protective barrier on the skin's surface to prevent moisture loss and promote a smooth and silky feel. - Can help soothe and calm irritated or sensitive skin, making it beneficial for individuals with dry or reactive skin. - Assists in improving skin texture and promoting a more even and radiant complexion.
