S like Sunflower

Sunflower plant oil (Helianthus annuus) is often used in cosmetics because it is rich in unsaponifiables - vitamin E and phytosterols with antioxidant properties - and in essential omega 6 fatty acids, to act as a protector. It also has a texture that penetrates well. In a body treatment, it is perfect for bringing the little “dry oil” side that is so important before getting dressed.

Sunflower oil is a popular vegetable oil used in cooking and in food products. Here are some of the virtues of sunflower oil:
- Rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids: Sunflower oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid, which are essential fatty acids important for the health of the heart and blood vessels.
- Rich in Vitamin E: Sunflower oil also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that can help protect cells in the body from free radical damage.
- Good for the skin: Sunflower oil can be used to moisturize the skin, improve its appearance and help treat skin problems such as eczema and dermatitis.
- Aids in digestion: Sunflower oil can help stimulate bile production and improve the digestion of food.
- Source of energy: Sunflower oil is a source of calories and can provide energy for the body.
- May reduce inflammation: Some studies have suggested that sunflower oil may have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation in the body and prevent certain chronic diseases.
- May reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease: The polyunsaturated fatty acids in sunflower oil may help lower levels of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) in the blood, which can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
