1. Prevents wrinkles
Due to its high antioxidant properties, sunflower oil has shown to be a valuable anti-aging ingredient. In addition, sunflower oil is a great source of retinol-- an agent that has been demonstrated to effectively prevent wrinkles.
2. Thickens hair
Sunflower oil is a natural emollient, or thickening agent, that can have a softening effect on hair and prevent dryness. Furthermore, sunflower oil prevents breakage and is able to strengthen hair and contains the fatty acids that are essential to hair health.
3. Protects against sun
Sunflower oil can also protect you from sun damage, as it is a great source of beta-carotene, which makes your skin less sensitive to the sun. Naturally, this is beneficial in keeping your skin healthy and fighting off sun burns.
