How Sunflower Seed Oil Can Benefit Your Skin

Sunflower Seed Oil is the ticket to healthy, nourished skin. You may have guessed that Sunflower Seed Oil is extracted from sunflower seeds. The oil has many beneficial uses in diet and as a topical treatment for its healing and restorative properties for hundreds of years. Sunflower Oil is an emollient that is highly absorbent and won't clog your pores or irritate your skin. You can use this oil on its own or one of the countless skin care products available such as cleansers, oils, serums, and moisturizers.

What is Sunflower Seed Oil?

Sunflower Seed Oil is extracted from compressing the seeds of the sunflower plant. The oil has high levels of oleic acid, linoleic acid, and Vitamin E. It has been used to improve skin's hydration and provide protection by way of antioxidants. 

The linoleic acid reinforces the skin's protective barrier and locks in moisture on the skin's surface, preventing moisture loss. Vitamin E works to protect your skin from the free radicals running rampant in the environment. 

Hudson Valley Skin Care sources our Sunflower Seed Oil locally in Pleasant Valley from HV Cold Pressed Oils.  We choose to obtain our resources locally to fuel our community and bring the beauty of the Hudson Valley into your daily life.

Strengthen your skin’s barrier – The linoleic acid helps prevent your skin from losing water and helps boost the protection of your skin barrier. The anti-inflammatory properties make sunflower oil a good treatment for skin conditions such as eczema.  

Sunflower Seed Oil helps heal wounds and calms the skin – Sunflower seed’s oleic acid has anti-inflammatory properties that can help aid in healing wounds faster, such as acne, minor skin cuts and scrapes, and inflamed skin.
