Sunflower oil was first discovered and used by First Nations people to heal snake bites and condition skin and hair… today it’s now known to heal acne, moisturize skin, protect skin pollution and UV rays and protect collagen and elastin in your skin.
Sunflower oil used regularly can help remove dead cells and impurities, leaving behind smooth, moisturized skin. It creates a barrier over the skin protecting it from environmental pollution and UV rays. Along with these many benefits it also provides the skin with the following vitamins;
- Vitamin E - heals scars, combats acne, inflammation, redness, roughness and irritation.
- Vitamin A, C, and D that act as antioxidants to regenerate new skin cells and help rid skin or acne-causing bacteria.
- Beta-carotene, an antioxidant beneficial for the appearance of healthy skin.
- Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids that prevent premature signs of aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face.
