Finding our True North®

Why I LOVE Sunflower Oil!

Why I LOVE Sunflower Oil!

Did you know that... 

That EVERY True North Beauty product is formulated with Sunflower Oil?  

I know what you’re thinking, this must be some amazing oil in order for me to put it in ALL of my products. Well, it is! I saw the appeal of sunflower oil early on when I was first learning how to make bath and body products and knew I needed to use it!

Here are some of the reasons as to why I fell in love with this oil and use it in every product I create:

It's a light weight oil that penetrates well below the surface of your skin for deep nourishment and is perfect for making skincare products because it feels so light on your skin! The sunflower (Helianthus annuus) was first cultivated by American Indian tribes as far back as 3,000 B.C. to make oil from the seeds to help protect their skin from sun damage.

Sunflower oil is specifically related to improving skin health and regenerating cells. This means your skin is better protected against damage from the sun, as well as the natural degradation of age that occurs when free radicals are present in the body.

Sunflower oil is extremely high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals, keeping them from destroying or damaging healthy cells. This allows you to see an increased reduction in scars, quicker wound healing, and a healthier natural glow to your skin.

It has also been shown that Sunflower oil has natural calming properties that improve your skin’s moisture retention capacity and is beneficial for individuals with dehydrated or sensitive skin. Using sunflower oil regularly can help remove dead cells and impurities, leaving behind smooth, moisturized skin!

Amazing oil, isn’t it?! Everyone that uses my products always tells me how smooth and soft their skin feels and now you know the reason why. I put a lot of thought into formulating my products and every ingredient I use is chosen for a specific reason, but sunflower oil was so amazing that I had to use it in all True North Beauty creations!
