Sunflower Oil

sun-flower-oil

Sunflower Oil is a relatively cheap good all rounder carrier oil. It is high in antioxidants and is a good source of beta carotene. One of the benefits of beta carotene is that it contains antioxidants which can penetrate the skin helping to neutralize free radicals. This can help with sun damage and also protect against the early signs of skin aging.

One of the constituents of Sunflower oil is Vitamin E. This is a great emollient and is beneficial for dry, mature and aging skin. It has a neutral odor and absorbs nicely into the skin without leaving a oily film or feeling of greasiness.
