Sunflower Seed Oil | The Benefits of Sunflower for Your Skin
Sunflower oil is a non-comedogenic carrier oil that is highly absorbent, and won’t clog pores. It’s non-irritating for most people and can be used on all types of skin, including dry, normal, oily, and acne-prone.
Sunflower Seed Oil Benefits
Sunflower seed oil is rich in Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help protect skin from free radicals and from adverse effects of the sun, such as premature aging and wrinkles. Using a skincare product formulated with sunflower oil is a good way to obtain vitamin E’s benefits for the skin.
Linoleic acid helps to maintain the skin’s natural barrier, supporting its ability to retain moisture. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect when used topically. This makes it beneficial for dry skin and for conditions, such as eczema.
