A gorgeous top~quality oil cold~pressed from organic Helianthus annus.
This light~colored oil, native to Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean region and North and Central America, comes from the seeds of the Sunflower plant. The oil provides a rich source of unsaturated linoleic and oleic fatty acids and Vitamin E andl is soothing, calming and caring to the skin.
Sunflower oil, like other oils, can retain moisture in the skin. It may also provide a protective barrier that resists infection in premature infants. Studies using sunflower oil have been conducted involving low birth weight infants who are often susceptible to infection due to their underdeveloped skin. The study determined that infants receiving a daily skin treatment of sunflower oil were 41% less likely to develop infections in the hospital.
Sunflower oil contains an extremely high amount of vitamin E. This vitamin is crucial in the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by ultraviolet light, or UVA, from the sun. Additionally, studies have shown that vitamin E may prevent scarring, smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and generally improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Because of the vitamins in sunflower oil, and the natural occurrence of healthy carotenoids (organic pigment) and waxes which help form a protective barrier on the skin, this oil is excellent when used to treat acne. Using a gentle cleanser and applying sunflower oil directly on acne prone skin helps keep bacteria out of pores and healthy moisture in.
