Sunflower Oil, the unsung hero of oils.

Soap Workshop

Who doesn't love watching Sunflowers swaying and dancing in the breeze,  watching them turn and follow the sun's rays as the day passes by? I think they are the happiest flower's.

Did you know that Sunflowers will turn and face each other on a cloudy day to share their energy with each other? What a truly beautiful big happy flower.

Did you know that the oil made from the Sunflower seeds has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the redness of irritated skin? Sunflower seed oil is high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid and vitamin E. Omega-6 acid which can help reduce inflammation of your skin and encourage the growth of new skin cells.

We have recently had some of our soap clients contact us and praise our Sunflower blended soap, apparently, it has helped reduce ongoing skin rashes and itchy dry skin. We are so happy to get this feedback.

Sunflower oil can also assist in reducing the scarring of the skin. The linoleic acid found in Sunflower oil has anti-inflammatory agents that can help heal your skin and repair your skin's barrier.

Wrinkles omg I'm really not impressed with wrinkles as I age, like seriously who wants wrinkles? The lipid structure of your skin consists of stacked lipid layers composed of ceramides (CER), cholesterol (CHOL) and free fatty acids (FFA) that just loves sunflower oil. 

Sunflower oil can assist your skin to retain its moisture and it can be applied directly to your skin, it is such a beautiful gentle oil that you will often find in babies and infant products.

Sunflower oil is high in Vitamin E, A, C and D as well. Making sunflower oil is one of our favourite oils we use to create ou soap with, it can be used as an all-over body and face soap. We just love the Sunflower oil in our soap, it is so conditioning for your skin and the bubbles are so gentle and fresh.
