Ingredient Highlight
Sunflower Oil


June 29, 2017

I wanted to highlight Sunflower oil because it’s one of the ingredients in our Indulge Total Body Elixir and has tons of benefits for skin and hair! Sunflower oil is packed with Vitamins A, B, C, E, beta-carotene, potassium, iron, calcium and Oleic acid. These vitamins and minerals make it a great moisturizer and skin protectant as well as an essential for promoting hair growth and preventing breakage.

I’ve listed many of the benefits of sunflower oil below. You’ll see why we had to include this botanical powerhouse in Indulge, which can be used head to toe and also as a bath oil.

Sunflower Oil Benefits skin hair nails

As you can see, sunflower oil is one of the healthiest oils. It’s light in texture, so it’s not too heavy on skin and hair. In addition to the incredible benefits it provides for skin and hair, sunflower oil contains antioxidant properties, which help prevent free radicals from damaging skin and hair.

 Try adding sunflower oil to your beauty routine with our Indulge Total Body Elixir. This total body treatment, as all of our products, is multi-use and can be used on skin, hair and nails.  My personal ritual is to apply to damp skin after bath or shower for a completely indulgent moisturizing experience.
