This gentle oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Sunflower. Its thin texture absorbs well into the skin without clogging pores. Organic Sunflower Oil contains high amounts of Vitamins A, B, D and E, minerals, and oleic acids (omega 9 fatty acids), which tend to be very moisturizing and hydrating to the skin. These properties make Organic Sunflower Oil deeply nourishing, conditioning and hydrating so it is highly recommended for treating dry, weathered, aged, and damaged skin. Organic Sunflower Oil also helps the skin to retain moisture by providing a protective barrier that resists infection, especially in pre-term infants. Did you know? Studies have shown that infants receiving daily skin care using sunflower oil are less likely to develop any skin related infections.
