Benefits of Safflower oil for skin and hair care formulations

Safflower oil is a light, highly nourishing carrier oil used in cosmetic formulations to create intensely moisturising products. Rich in linoleic acid, safflower oil has considerable regenerative properties, relieving symptoms of irritated and inflamed skin, providing lasting moisture. It is particularly suited for products geared towards combating very dry skin, as safflower oil instantly softens, soothes and bolsters skin’s natural moisture barrier - supplying vital lipids to the outer layers of skin. Its natural high levels of antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamin B6 provide considerable benefits for those with acne-prone and sensitive skin.
