Sunflower oil is light, easily absorbed by the skin and rich in fatty acids and vitamins - especially vitamin E. It is also a great source for beta carotene, which converts into vitamin A, which in turn has fabulous antioxidant properties - great for your overall health and your skin health too.
It is wonderful for all skin types, especially mature, sensitive and dry, damaged skin.
Sunflower is a good carrier oil to use, as part of a blend, for both body and facial massage. It is a moisturising oil that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.....plus its antioxidant properties help keep wrinkles at bay!
This oil is extracted from the seeds of the flower which makes it ideal to use with people who may suffer from nut allergies.
Because of its numerous health benefits and the fact that it is inexpensive to buy, it is often included in soaps, lotions, creams and moisturisers. I often use it as part of an oil blend when formulating my natural skincare products.
Colour, Viscosity and Aroma:
Clear pale amber with thin viscosity and a faintly sweet, light aroma.
Inexpensive with a shelf-life of about 12 months.
