Sunflower Oil (Refined)


Sunflower Oil, also known as Sunflower Carrier Oil, is obtained from the ripe fruit of the Sunflower plant and contains a vast amount of minerals, essential fatty acids (linoleic and oleic) and Vitamins A, B, D, E & K. Because of this, it is highly valued in the skincare industry and is a preferred oil for diluting essential oils.


• Sunflower Oil is readily absorbed into the skin and is an excellent moisturiser and emollient.


• It also contains powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and regenerating properties that are incredibly beneficial for the skin.


• When used topically, it can act as a protective layer on the skin, helping to shield from environmental damage and reduce moisture loss, and can even help to heal or prevent skin infections.


• Sunflower Oil is commonly used by manufacturers, massage therapists and aromatherapists, and as a general-purpose oil it suits many cosmetic applications such as hair care products, soaps, massage oils, nail products, scrubs, creams, lotions and body butters.


AWO’s Sunflower Oil has been refined, making it excellent for use in cosmetic formulations.
