Clearly a magical ingredient for the skin and hair, Sunflower oil is extracted from the seeds of the Sunflower plant. This oil can be used for medicinal as well as cosmetic purposes. Sunflower oil is light in color and pretty light in comparison with other oil based products. Hence, easy to absorb. Sunflower Oil contains beta-carotene in plenty. This is a fat soluble compound that gets converted into Vitamin A which is important for the shine and suppleness of the skin. Skin sensitivity against the sun is drastically reduced as the beta-carotene antioxidants neutralize the free radicals present in the UV rays which are capable of causing skin cancer. Vitamin E is another positive about Sunflower Oil that fights premature skin aging. The over exposure to sun causes an accelerated release of free radicals which in turn wrinkles the skin, soaks away the moisture and causes dryness and patches. Vitamin E takes care of your skin like no other by locking the moisture and emending the harm caused.
