Sunflower Seed Oil (Helianthus Annuus)
Sourced from one of So They Can’s social business projects in Tanzania, our sunflower oil is rich in Oleic Acids and contains a high content of Vitamins A, D & E to provide moisture and a protective layer to the skin.
Vitamin and antioxidant rich, this all purpose oil contributes to the health and vitality of the skin.
Sunflower is also a good source of beta-carotene, which has shown in studies to help make the skin less sensitive to the sun. This and other antioxidants help shield the skin from environmental damage while preventing premature signs of ageing.
Sunflower seed oil contains essential fatty acids which are perfect for encouraging the formation of collagen and elastin, promoting skin that has a soft, smooth appearance. These fatty acids also create an antibacterial effect, protecting the skin from bacteria and lowering the occurrence of acne.
Finally, sunflower seed oils can help moisturize the skin, while also helping the skin to retain more of that moisture, providing a strong skin barrier and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
