Sunflower Seed Oil
The main component of sunflower oil is linoleic acid, a naturally occurring, colourless polyunsaturated fatty acid that functions as a skin-conditioning agent and cell-communicating ingredient. Linoleic acid research has shown that topical application helps improve many skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne and non-melanoma skin cancers.
Other components include oleic acid and palmitic acid, the latter being a particularly good emollient. It helps reinforce skin’s healthy barrier function for a smoother surface. These ingredients tend to be absorbed well by the skin, and offer softening and moisturising effects.
In addition, it contains lecithin, carotenoids (antioxidants), tocopherols (vitamin E), and appreciable quantities of vitamins A & D.
In general, Sunflower seed oil conditions the skin by slowing down evaporation of its natural stores of moisture.
