Sunflower Oil, A powerful friend in skincare.

Why we at Mil Balms use sunflower oil in our skincare products.

Sunflower oil is an all natural, healthy ingredient to heal skin and maintain its health. Sunflower oil has calming and moisturising properties which are well known among skin care experts. Sunflower oil has many medicinal and cosmetic uses and may be helpful if you are suffering from acne, eczema, and irritation of the skin.  It is also a great product to use on your newborn baby for extra skin protection.

Sunflower Oils Properties

A light coloured oil, sunflower oil has a delicate nutty scent. Perhaps the most important aspect of sunflower oil is its high vitamin E content. The health benefits of consuming vitamin E, or using it on the skin, have been studied for years and can benefit skin in many ways.  Vitamin E is crucial in the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by sunlight. Additionally, studies have shown that vitamin E may prevent scarring, smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and generally improve the appearance and health of your skin.  Sunflower oil is also high in vitamins A, C and D, all of which have protective qualities.

How to Use Sunflower Oil on the Skin

The best way to use sunflower oil is to find either a cleanser or moisturising product that contains the oil as one of its main ingredients.  Mil All Natural Balms use organic sunflower oil in our Baby Bum Balm. Combined with the other ingredients such as golden beeswax, jojoba and chamomile it forms a powerful and gentle diaper balm which protects and moisturises baby soft skin.

Mil All Natural Balms are so impressed with sunflower oil we have also used it in our Organic Baby Oil.  Once again the sunflower oil it is blended with organic jojoba to provide a powerful, gentle and simple body oil.   This blend is a wonderful all over body baby body oil keeping baby’s skin soft and supple.  It is particularly useful on dry skin and cradle cap.  Mums (in fact women of all ages) are also using it as a wonderful all over moisturising body oil.  Just massage small amounts in to dry warm skin, and let it work its gentle nourishing  magic!

Our Baby Body Oil is also being used by skincare professionals and many customers as a cleanser and moisturiser in one.  When using this blend to give your skin suppleness and remove dead cells and impurities. When using it as a cleanser, the combination jojoba and sunflower oil should not require any additional moisturising, as the oils themselves contain fatty acids and vitamins which will effectively, gently and naturally moisturise your skin.

Sunflower Oil is a powerful friend in natural skincare, we love it in our products.
