Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil
Sunflowers are beautiful to look at and they will always brighten up your day! And of course your face! Sunflower oil is an emollient, which means that it softens and moisturizes the skin and help the skin retain its moisture. Sunflower oil also traps the moisture inside skin cells with the help of vitamin E to keep the skin hydrated even on a deeper level for a longer period of time. The high amount of vitamin E also helps to protect the skin cells against harmful and bad mouthed UV rays. In addition the big E also protects the collagen and elastin which keeps the skin youthful by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunflower oil also contains vitamins A, C and D, which makes it a great warrior against acne. It is high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid, which has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and enhances the development of new skin cells.
