How is Sunflower beneficial?
Organic sunflower oil is high in Vitamin A , E, B & Oleic acid as well as linoleic acid, lecithin, and carotenoids. sunflower oil acts as emollients to holds moisture inside the skin cells and retain skin hydration.
As a strong antioxidant, sunflower helps to protect the collagen and elastin in the skin to improve the skin’s tone. The high amounts of Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid reduce inflammation (anti-inflammatory) to decrease skin inflammation - dermatitis.
