Unrefined organic Sunflower seed oil is a base oil that’s bursting with benefits. When cold-pressed into a golden oil, it unleashes an avalanche of skin barrier reinforcing fatty acids and vitamins to feed the skin barrier exactly what it needs to stay, calm, soft and protected.
Here we explain why everyone should incorporate the benefits of Sunflower Seed oil into their organic skin care routine.
Is Sunflower Seed oil good for skin?
Sunflower Seed oil is great for the skin. Ultra-soothing, skin-barrier supporting and suitable for skin that’s prone to eczema and psoriasis, we have so much faith in the humble Sunflower Seed that you will often find its oil listed as Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil in our INCI lists (ingredients list).
Read on to discover some of the reasons we love using Sunflower Seed oil in our organic skin care are:
7 Sunflower Seed oil benefits for skin
- Sunflower Seed oil is especially high in vitamin E which helps to prevent skin dryness
- Sunflower seed oil is anti-inflammatory and calms skin redness and irritation
- Sunflower seed oil is very moisturising and helps to soften the skin
- Sunflower seed oil contains antioxidants which help fight free radicals
- Sunflower fortifies the skin barrier to help protect skin prone to dryness and eczema
- Sunflower seed oil is non comedogenic and won’t clog pores or trigger blemishes
- Sunflower seed oil is non-irritating and has a low-risk allergen profile
We use unrefined, organic Sunflower Seed oil in our skin care as this natural ingredient contains the purest and most concentrated form of:
Vitamin E - A vital antioxidant vitamin that maintains skin elasticity and protects against dry skin and skin sagging.
Omega-6 - This soothing, anti-inflammatory fatty acid helps to preserve the integrity of the skin’s stratum corneum (defensive barrier) and moisturises skin from the inside to improve skin hydration. If your skin is dry, flaky and dull, you may be low on omega acids.
Did you know? Omega-6 is not the only fatty acid present in Sunflower Seed oil. This humble seed is also rich in oleic acid, palmitic acid and the vitamins E, A and D. This rich nutrient content makes Sunflower Seed oil not only suitable for sensitive skin types but also an essential oil for everyone.
The best Sunflower Seed oil skin care for face
In UK summers, a must-have for every day is an SPF facial sun cream. Our vegan Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF30 is quickly absorbed and blends safe effective high-factor SPF with skin-nourishing, age-defence plant oils and plant emulsifiers - including organic Sunflower Seed oil.
If you prefer to apply an SPF moisturising cream with Sunflower Seed oil, try our Day Solution Cream SPF15. This rebalances the skin as it moisturises and is rich in organic Sunflower Seed oil.
SPF should be worn year-round but if your skin gets drier in the winter months you can give your skin some extra nourishment with our rich Vita Min Fix cream. This blends the benefits of Sunflower Seed oil, Shea butter and Squalane to deliver skin replenishment and hydration.
The lips don’t have sebaceous glands so are more prone to becoming dry. Regularly replenishing them with our soothing One Balm cocoons skin in a protective layer of soothing Myrrh, regenerating Frankincense, antioxidant Pomegranate, reparative Rosehip and Omega-rich Sunflower seed oil.
The best Sunflower Seed oil skin care for body
The skin on our body can be as prone to dryness as the skin on our face. Smooth our Sunflower Seed oil body oils onto the skin after showering and skin will feel soft, hydrated and soothe.
The best Sunflower Seed body oils
Pure Luxe Oil is the Sunflower Seed body oil we recommend for indulgent post-bath pampering. This silky, luxurious oil oozes with plant oil goodness and blends Sunflower Seed oil with Pomegranate oil, Safflower oil and Cranberry Oil and is bursting with antioxidants.
The best Sunflower Seed oil deodorants
Shaving and clothing friction can leave the delicate underarm skin sore but the blend of Sunflower Seed oil and Shea Butter that we use in our skin-soothing deodorants keep underarms soft and calm whilst Prebiotics, Zinc ricinoleate and Potassium alum inhibits bacteria which cause BO to stop body from becoming airborne.
