Organic Safflower Oil is believed to be an excellent oil for skincare as it is rich in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants. It is packed full of Linoleic Acid (Omega-6) which make it particularly suitable for oily/blemished skin. Its emollient properties make it an effective moisturiser, hydrating, protecting and nourishing the skin.
Organic Safflower Oil is very light on the skin, with a non-greasy texture and can be absorbed fairly easily when applied to your body. For this reason, it can be often found listed as an ingredient in several skincare and haircare preparations for your everyday beauty routine. Its moisturising and emollient properties make this oil a popular choice in homemade recipes.
Organic Safflower Oil is also known to be beneficial to your hair and scalp and an excellent addition to your hair care regime for shiny and healthy looking hair.
Organic Safflower Oil has a high fatty acid content making it an effective addition to massage oil blends, the oil brings moisturising and lubricating properties that will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised. It is advisable to blend Safflower Oil with other carrier oils to extend its shelf life.
All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
