Benefits of Sunflower Seed Oil for the Skin

Sunflower seed oil is such an amazing oil for the skin.  We use it in two of our products—our Mint Balm for Lips and our Rose Peppermint Lip & Cheek Tint.  It is truly a magical oil.  It is incredibly moisturizing and it has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, as well.  One of its most powerful attributes is that is contains Vitamin E, which assists in holding moisture inside the skin cells, leading to more hydrated skin.  Vitamin E also helps to decrease redness and roughness in the outer dermal layer of the skin.  Further, it acts as a powerful protectant shielding the skin from the environmental elements.  Our products containing sunflower seed oil are intended specifically for the lips and face, but if you want to apply sunflower seed oil directly to the body, it is best to apply it immediately after getting out of the shower so the skin can soak in the nutrients from the oil more easily.  With all of its amazing benefits, this oil is definitely not one to overlook.
