What is Safflower Oil and Why is it good for the Skin?


2 minute read

With more people taking a deeper look into what they consume and put on to their bodies. It is no surprise that natural products and skincare has experienced such a meteoric rise. Safflower seed oil is the latest plant ingredient gaining momentum within skincare companies as a favourable ingredient of choice thanks to its extensive list of benefits for the skin.

What is Safflower Seed Oil?

Safflower Oil is extracted from the seeds of a Safflower Plant and is known for its bright yellow and orange flowers.

Safflower plant

Safflower Seed Oil or 'Carthamus Tinctorius', is a natural oil that is packed with active ingredients which make them highly effective for treating skincare woes. The oil pressed from the safflower seeds is high in Vitamin E, which offers many health benefits.

We have compiled some of our favourite reasons why we think Safflower Seed Oil deserves a spot in your vanity or on your skincare shelf.

1) Research suggests it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.

2) Vitamin E is known for its potent antioxidant properties which makes it a great line of defense against free radicals. One of the biggest contributions to the reduction of collagen in the skin which leads to premature ageing.

3) Safflower oil is a natural source of linoleic acids also known as Omega-6 acids. This ensures your skin will trap and retain moisture which helps the skin to remain soft and hydrated. Linoleic acid is also great for strengthening the skins barrier so it can effectively keep water in and irritants out.
