Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil

Sunflower oil is a mild tasting, amber-coloured oil expressed from the seeds of sunflower (Helianthus annuus). Cultivated globally, sunflowers typically grow to about 3 meters tall in sunny climates, with distinctive large bright-yellow flower heads containing spirals of seeds. Sunflower oil is particularly high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that is known to benefit the skin with its anti-inflammatory and moisture-retaining properties. It is also rich in vitamin E and oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. Sunflower oil is used in many industries including in cooking as a carrier oil, in beauty products as an emollient and even as a biodiesel.
