What Is Sunflower Seed Oil?
Compressed from sunflower seeds, it’s a fast-absorbing and moisturizing oil that’s rich in linoleic acid, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid, and oleic acid, an Omega-9 fatty acid. Sunflower seed oil is used as an emollient and helps to keep skin soft, balanced, and healthy.
Benefits of Sunflower Seed Oil
Given the high content of fatty acids, sunflower seed oil is packed with natural antioxidants and vitamin E, which maintain the skin’s health and minimize a range of health conditions. Among these benefits? Sunflower seed oil improves heart health, boosts energy, regenerates skin cells, strengthens the immune system, lowers cholesterol, and reduces inflammation. With time and regular usage, many see a reduction in scars, quicker wound healing, and glowing skin. In a sense, this oil is a miracle worker!
