What is sunflower oil?

Sunflower oil is derived from the seeds of sunflowers, commonly used as both a superfood and a skincare ingredient. Besides beautifying fall floral arrangements prior to harvesting, sunflower oil is a superstar skincare agent you’ll definitely want to join forces with on your next adventure.

Is sunflower oil good for your skin?

Yes! In addition to the above-mentioned health benefits, sunflower oil is linked to healthier skin due to being high in vitamin E – a bare necessity for glowing, supple skin. It’s also got omega-6 and omega-9, which are known to strengthen overall tissue strength.

Does sunflower oil cause breakouts?

Nope! It’s a non-comedogenic carrier oil, so it won’t clog pores. It’s also super hydrating, bringing many health benefits to your skin – which is also the largest organ in your body. In fact, with the omegas in it as well as the high percentage of vitamin E, sunflower oil actually helps protect your skin from sun damage and free radicals.
