Organic Sunflower Oil
Since sunflower oil is non-comedogenic, it won’t clog pores. It’s a super absorbent carrier oil and typically won’t irritate most people. Sunflower oil can be used on all skin types, including dry, normal, oily, and even acne-prone. The oil has several compounds with significant perks for the skin, including oleic acid, vitamin E, sesame, and linoleic acid.
BENEFITS OF SUNFLOWER OIL FOR SKIN
Chock full of skin-boosting compounds, sunflower oil delivers plenty of perks to your complexion. These are the benefits of sunflower oil:
- Strengthens the skin barrier: Sunflower oil is rich in linoleic acid, which is a fatty acid that's good for limiting water loss, so it’s good for the skin barrier.
- Delivers antioxidants: Sunflower oil is rich in vitamin E, which is an antioxidant. Vitamin E will help guard skin from free radicals and damage from the sun, including fine lines and other signs of aging.
- Soothes irritated skin: Sunflower seed oil is also thought to have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to calm the skin. It has been well studied to treat skin conditions like dryness and eczema.
- Helps with wound healing: For wound healing and acne or inflamed skin, sunflower oil will help. Oleic acid may be responsible for helping to heal wounds faster.
- Doesn’t trigger breakouts: Sunflower oil is non-comedogenic. It is one of the few oils that can be used in patients who have acne-prone skin, as it should not block the pores
SIDE EFFECTS OF SUNFLOWER OIL
You aren’t likely to experience any consequences when using this nourishing oil. Sunflower oil is very low risk. Because it's an anti-inflammatory, that's helping patients that have barrier issues in atopic dermatitis, and it is unlikely to cause a reaction. Usually, those ingredients that have that kind of interaction with the body very rarely end up causing any negative impact.
HOW TO USE IT
Sunflower seed oil can be used on a daily basis. If you’re using a pure oil, it can be applied after washing and layered underneath your moisturizer. Those who are using it to treat a compromised skin barrier, eczema, or atopic dermatitis should use it more regularly to see results, At night, that becomes your last layer.
Organic Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture.
Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
One common use of cocoa butter is to smooth scars, wrinkles, and other marks on the skin. Many women believe cocoa butter creams and lotions can be used during and after pregnancy to prevent and minimize the appearance of stretch marks. Cocoa butter has also been promoted to heal rashes from conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
Cocoa butter is considered safe to use on your skin. The makers of cocoa butter creams say it’s safe to use during pregnancy. For people who are sensitive to cocoa butter or other ingredients found in cocoa butter products, it may cause a rash or other allergic reaction.
