Sunflower Seed Oil obviously comes from the seeds of the Sunflower, duh! These tasty snacks also produce excellent, lightly textured, oleic acid-rich emollient oils. What’s so great about that? Well that oil contains large amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, making it ideal for use on delicate, sensitive skin.
Sunflower seeds also contain helianol (a component of triterpene alcohols present in the flowers), which has potent anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
This tiny little seed doesn’t stop there. Sunflower seed oil is one of several plant-derived emollients that mimic the lipid, or fat, content of the skin. Which means; this delicately textured oil extract helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the skin’s complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage, and promoting skin with a soft, smooth, healthy appearance.
