Organic sunflower seed oil is a gentle antioxidant rich skin care oil that is perfect for beginners. Made from cold-pressed sunflower seeds, sunflower seed oil is light and is easily absorbed by the skin without clogging pores. The most unique feature of sunflower seed oil is its high Vitamin E content. Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant and skin regenerator that can actually help reverse and prevent sun damage, environmental damage, and premature aging caused by free radical damage. Additionally, organic sunflower seed oil protects the skin’s precious collagen and elastin supply, resulting in a more toned youthful appearance. Like safflowers, sunflowers are members of the ragweed family and the oil should be avoided by those with ragweed allergies. Teenage skin and those who suffer from acne will also benefit because of sunflower seed oil’s potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and low comedogenic properties. Continuous use can eliminate acne while significantly reducing water loss through the skin; thus, resulting in clear and hydrated skin. Sunflower seed oil comes in three varieties: high, moderate, and low oleic acid (which explains the high oleic acid range above). Stick to low oleic acid content sunflower oil as the higher oleic acid content types will have a higher comedogenic rating. Other than that, the purest sunflower seed oil is going to be certified organic, unrefined, and cold-pressed.
Organic sunflower oil is a key ingredient in the Volcanics Anti-Aging Cream.
