More than just a cheerful flower, sunflowers produce an oil which can be extracted from their seeds. Bursting with Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil (also known as Helianthus annuus) has many powerful benefits when used as a skincare ingredient.
Along with moisturising the skin and keeping it hydrated for a longer period of time, Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which can help to fight any damage caused by free radicals. Studies have shown that the use of Vitamin E in skincare products may help to protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The combination of Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid and Vitamin E which occurs naturally in Sunflower Seed Oil gives it anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and regenerative properties, helping to reduce any redness and roughness in the skin and evening out the complexion. Linoleic acid can decrease inflammation in the skin which occurs as a result of sunburn and skin conditions such as acne and dermatitis.
So, for a deeply nourished and glowing complexion, try incorporating some Sunflower Seed Oil into your daily regime.Products containing this ingredient:
