Products of the Week: Organic, Unrefined Safflower Oil!
22nd August, 2018
For a very long time the safflower has been a quiet little worker offering its talents in a number of applications. (gastronomical, medicinal, industrial) Then in the latter part of the 20th century it turned out to have another set of talents in the cosmetic world that surprised a lot of people and still does today.
Imagine a light non-greasy oil that wants to take care of many needs, but not be too overwhelming. Organic Unrefined Safflower oil is that dreamboat. It rolls up onto the scene full of valuable things like oleic, linoleic, palmitic, stearic, and linolenic acids. These polyunsaturates make it possible for safflower oil to do marvelous things for hair and skin. It is there year-round to protect the skin from the elements be light, radiation, or the bitter cold; while offering to hold in moisture, and lessening the appearance of wrinkles. It is an emollient that glides over the skin and avoids clogging pores and assists in cleansing t\he skin. It is gentle, hydrating, and anti-inflammatory for those with a number of skin conditions. But does it stop there? No it does not. It pulls antioxidants, scar-lightening, and toning out of it’s deep bag of skills. It is there to keep hair and scalps healthy. It softens hair without leaving it sticky or greasy. Safflower oil wants nothing more than for everyone to look and feel their best. The most pleasing thing is how it can work well neat or in a number of applications. Creams, lotions, hair care products, even lip balms. Safflower oil likes to commit without smothering. A rare combination indeed.
