Sunflower oil is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, making it it one of the more cost-effective oils. It produces a lather that is incredibly conditioning on the skin. This oil does tend to leave a more oily feeling on the skin. It can be used in cold process recipes up to 100%, but we recommend 20% or less.
Sunflower oil is a good oil to blend with other base oils in massage or perfume bases. It is a lightweight oil so it's wonderful in bath oils and lotions but does have a slow absorption rate (thus the oily feel).
