Sunflower oil has large amounts of essential fatty acids as well as a high amount of Vitamin E. Sunflower oil is a good oil to blend with other base oils in massage or perfume bases. This oil does tend to leave a more oily feeling on the skin. It helps to provide a stable, conditioning lather in soap. 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).
