We feature Pumpkin Seed Oil inside our Pro Age Eye Cream
These pretty yellow buds are not just for admiring this summer but have great skin benefits too! That's why we use Sunflower Oil in more than just one of our products. Some of the amazing benefits include:
Sunflower oil has emollient properties that help the skin retain its moisture. Vitamin E helps lock moisture inside skin cells, keeping skin hydrated for a longer period.
Sunflower oil is extremely high in vitamin E – an antioxidant that helps protect skin cells from harmful UV rays from the sun and other environmental stressors.
In addition to vitamin E, sunflower oil is also rich in vitamins A, C, and D, making it effective in the treatment of acne. Sunflower seed oil contains vitamins and fatty acids that act as antioxidants to regenerate new skin cells and help our skin rid itself of acne-causing bacteria.
Sunflower oil is an excellent source of beta-carotene, a fat-soluble compound that can be converted into Vitamin A. Beta-carotene’s antioxidant properties are beneficial for the appearance of our health and skin.
PREVENT PREMATURE AGEING
The antioxidant properties of sunflower oil help in preventing premature signs of ageing, as it helps protect the skin from exposure to sunlight. The vitamin E in sunflower seed oil can help protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in our face.
HEAL DRY SKIN
Sunflower oil has natural calming properties that improve our skin’s moisture retention capacity and is beneficial for individuals with dehydrated or sensitive skin. Using the oil regularly can help remove dead cells and impurities, leaving behind smooth, moisturised skin.
Sunflower seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help lower skin redness and roughness. It is high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid and vitamin E. Omega-6 acid helps decrease inflammation in the skin and enhances the development of new skin cells.
