What is Sunflower Oil?

It’s probably safe to say that everybody knows sunflowers.  They’re the gorgeous, tall, yellow flowers that remind us all of summer. But, did you know that oil can be made from sunflowers and that oil has benefits? 
 
Understanding various plants is important when you’re shopping for CBD topical products.  Each brand will choose what carrier oils and other ingredients they want to include in their topicals, so that their CBD product has additional benefits and is easy to apply. 

Sunflower oil is a popular ingredient for CBD topicals because it’s a great way to get vitamins and promotes healthy skin.  Sunflower oil can be used topically, consumed orally and is also a component of some cosmetics.  There are so many different ways you can use sunflower oil, making it one of the most versatile and usable compounds in many different products. 

There are many benefits of sunflower oil, but one of the most mentioned is its high amount of Vitamin E.  Vitamin E has so many different health benefits, including properties that include eye health and immune support.  Finding ways to incorporate Vitamin E into both your beauty and health routine is an excellent way to get a large range of health benefits.   

Not only does sunflower oil have Vitamin E, but it also works as an antioxidant and protects the skin.  Because topical products are applied directly to the skin, it is essential that all of their ingredients are healthy and have no problems being in contact with dermal tissue.  This is one of the reasons why sunflower oil is so popular in topical products, as it is not only safe for the skin, but also beneficial for its health. 

If you’re beginning the process of shopping for a CBD topical product, it's worth taking a look to see if it incorporates sunflower oil into it's formulations. Sunflower oil is an excellent addition to CBD products.  It’s especially useful for those wanting to protect their skin and get some extra Vitamin E.
