100% Pure Sunflower Carrier Oil The Sunflower Oil was used on the skin and hair, because is very high in essential fatty acids – fats which are essential to health but which the body cannot manufacture on its own – and, in particular, linoleic acid. Sunflower oil excellent as a carrier oil – either by itself or in blends with other oils – and is easily absorbed. Its combination of essential fatty acids and vitamins create a regenerating, softening, moisturizer which is good for all skin types and, in particular, dry, mature and sensitive skin. It speeds up healing of epidermal damage, including ulcers, bruises, wounds and acne. The oil helps seal in moisture, so its effects are long-lasting. The vitamins within many of the carrier oils contain a myriad of skin-building ingredients and sunflower oil is no exception: -The vitamin A stimulates and increases the deposition of collagen and supports elastin (which gives skin its elasticity). -The vitamin D promotes the skin’s barrier against foreign microbes. -The vitamin B2 has antioxidant properties and both help in blood cell production. -The vitamin B6 is thought to be effective in treating and preventing acne, as well as being important for nerve function and generating haemoglobin and antibodies. -The Vitamin E content of Sunflower Oil exhibits smoothing properties, which slows the look of wrinkles and fine lines. It also prevents blemishing and offers protection against the damaging effects of overexposure to the sun, one such effect being hyperpigmentation. How to use?
