WHY IS IT SO GOOD
The humble safflower seed oil is loaded with skin loving nutrients and
a lot of the great properties of safflower oil can be attributed to its rich content of essential fatty acids, especially Linoleic acid (about 75%) It helps to restore elasticity and reduce degeneration of skin cells by encouraging the formation of collagen and supporting skin cell rejuvenation.
It is also non-comedogenic and easily absorbed without leaving an oily feel.
The fatty acids of Safflower oil are also extremely beneficial to the hair and it gives shine and lustre to dry and damaged hair.
