It’s not just pretty to look at; the abundance of minerals, vitamins, omega fatty acids, and other natural properties make Sunflower Seed Oil (Helanthus Annuus) a top choice in cosmetic preparations.


 
 
 
 
 
 
This oil is rich in the minerals, zinc, phosphorus, iron, and potassium, as well as Vitamins A, D, K, and E. It also contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. But how does all of this help your hair?  
 
 
 
  

 

Heliogenol

High-quality Sunflower Seed Oil extract possesses a strong activity against free radicals, prolonging color-treated hair as free radical scavengers reduce the fading of dyes. The oil’s powerhouse component, Heliogenol™ is to thank for this miracle. This concentrated glycolic extract of sunflower seeds is titrated in polyphenols, which makes it possible for products containing top-quality Sunflower Seed Oil to protect hair and repair damage caused by free radicals of any nature and origin.

 

Antioxidants

Sunflower Seed Oil also contains more Vitamin E than any other oil used in haircare. Vitamin E is a super-antioxidant, protecting your locks from environmental damage, mainly from UV rays, and chemicals traced in medications and certain foods. This natural UV ray protection (like Heliogenol™ offers) prevents your haircolor from fading and further makes rich tones last, especially those stubborn reds. That’s double the protection!

 

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in Sunflower Seed Oil are also antioxidants, offering further protection and act as an anti-aging ingredient. Linoleic acid can even repair damaged cells and preserve the DNA of your hair within the cells. The dynamic combination of Vitamins A, D, K, and E are also vital to cell growth. Their presence in any haircare product literally strengthens the hair by keeping cells healthy, deep within the structural zone.

 

Minerals

Even more, the zinc, phosphorus, and iron found in Sunflower Seed Oil extract helps to slow hair loss and thinning, while Potassium is shown to help with hair growth. It is also a natural pH balancer, making it safe and calming to for the scalp and skin. On top of that, Potassium provides a longer shelf life for products, without the need for chemical additives!

 

Emollient

Lastly, Sunflower Seed Oil is a natural emollient, which keeps the hair soft and manageable. It works to control frizz and help the hair retain moisture, imparting an optimal conditioning result to the hair. This very light oil also lends to natural shine, without any added weight.
