Detailed benefits of Sunflower seed oil seed below:
Oleic and Linoleic acid:
Concentration: Oleic acid: up to 42% Linoleic acid: up to 75%
Both have their benefits and concentrate on difference skin types but together they give the skin a balance of both. With Linoleic acid concentrating on the Epidermis and Oleic acid working on the Dermis you have the perfect choice for normal or combination skin types. Essentially Linolenic acid locks moisture in and balances Sebum levels while Oleic acid plumps and hydrates the Dermis, fading fine lines and wrinkles. Sunflower oil has a higher level of linoleic acid, while this doesn’t negate the benefits for dry and mature skin it does improve its benefits for balancing sebum levels and working on the epidermis.
Magnesium is a naturally occurring alkaline macro mineral, there is a direct link between a deficiency in Magnesium and reduced healthy Sebum and Collagen levels. When this happens, you are likely to have dry and uneven skin tones that eventually lead to an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.
