Organic safflower oil is a gentle, highly moisturizing skin care oil with a similar makeup to sunflower oil. On average, however, safflower oil contains a higher percentage of linoleic acid and a lower percentage of oleic acid than its sunflower counterpart. Linoleic acid is excellent at breaking up blackheads, unclogging pores, and balancing sebum levels of the skin (excess sebum is one of the main causes of acne). This makes safflower oil a great carrier oil for the oil cleansing method–especially for those with acne prone and oily skin. Oily skin types might also enjoy using an organic safflower oil as a body moisturizer because of its light consistency and ability to absorb quickly into the skin.
Organic safflower oil is a key ingredient in the Volcanics Anti-Aging Cream.
