Posted by Jasmine Dayal on

Helianthus Annuus or Sunflower seed oil is one of the main ingredients in the Satin Sheen Multistick.

What is sunflower seed oil?

Made by pressing sunflower seeds, sunflower oil is a highly absorbent non-comedogenic carrier oil. Noncomedogenic oils are great for all types of skin.

Sunflower seed oil hydrates skin without clogging the pores

They help keep dry skin supple and oily skin acne-free allowing your skin to breathe easy. Sunflower oil contains several compounds that have amazing benefits for your skin including: Vitamin E, Oleic Acid and Linoleic Acid.

Oleic acid penetrates deeply into your skin’s surface allowing it to replenish the lost moisture that occurs with aging. Without clogging pores, it helps prevent moisture from evaporating and helps fight off fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, a decline of skin elasticity and dark spots. Oleic acid can also help repair, balance and calm irritated skin, helping even with conditions such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.

Sunflower seed oil is anti aging

Sunflower oil contains a high amount of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays as well as other environmental pollutants. These antioxidant properties aid greatly in preventing premature signs of aging and protect the collagen and elastin in skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the Vitamin E helps retain moisture within your skin cells allowing the sunflower seed oil to act as an emollient, softening and smoothing your skin.

It is anti-inflammatory

When used topically, linoleic acid has an anti-inflammatory effect extremely beneficial for sensitive skin. It helps to maintain your skin’s natural barrier, supporting moisture retention and enhancing the development of new skin cells.

Sunflower seed oil prevents blemishes

Along with linoleic acid, sunflower seed oil contains rich amounts of vitamins A, C, and D which all together make an effective treatment for acne as they help rid your skin of the bacteria that causes it.The regular use of sunflower oil helps remove dead cells and impurities, leaving behind smooth, moisturized beautiful skin.
