INGREDIENT FOCUS: WHAT IS SAFFLOWER OIL?
What is it?
Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) is an annual, thistle-like plant with many branches, the plants are 30 to 150 cm tall with circular flower heads having yellow, orange, or red flowers. Safflower is primarily used for its oil which is extracted from the seeds, Safflower Oil is an unsaturated oil from which contains beneficial fatty acids, primarily linolenic acid.
How can Safflower Oil help my skin?
Safflower oil is found to be ideal for improving the quality, texture and tone of skin due to the abundance of linoleic acid which is vital for healthy skin.
The high content of linoleic acid in safflower oil makes it ideal for boosting the quality and appearance of your skin. This non-occlusive emollient allows skin to breath whilst preserving the skin’s natural barrier to soften and smooth dry areas whilst revitalising, hydrating and preventing moisture loss. Linoleic acts as a lubricant that prevents water from leaving your skin, and therefore locks in moisture for beautiful, healthy skin.
Safflower Oil is suitable for all skin types, with another of its benefits being able to help with acne prone skin. Linoleic acid is lacking in the oil of acne-prone skin and can combine with sebum to unclog the pores and reduce blackheads, as well as acne, which is a result of sebum build-up under the skin. Furthermore, linoleic acid stimulates the regeneration of new skin cells, meaning that it helps to clear up scars and other blemishes from the surface of the skin for an even and glowing complexion.
