Scientific Background: Rooted in Science - Sunflower oil, scientifically known as Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, is derived from the seeds of the majestic sunflower plant (Helianthus annuus). This annual plant can reach towering heights of up to 12 feet, with each sunflower head consisting of a splendid cluster of numerous tiny flowers. Remarkably, every sunflower head has the potential to yield an astonishing 2,000 seeds. Not only is Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil a remarkable source of vitamin E, but it is also abundant in essential fatty acids. These valuable nutrients contribute to its well-deserved reputation as a truly exceptional oil.

Plant Origin & Native Region - Sunflowers are native to North America and were cultivated by Native Americans for food, oil, and medicine. They were introduced to Europe by Spanish explorers and are now grown worldwide as an important oilseed crop.

Hair Specialty: Emollient - Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil is well-regarded for its ability to soften and moisturize hair while safeguarding it from potential damage. Despite its rich nature, this product excels in its ability to be quickly absorbed without leaving behind any unpleasant stickiness or greasiness. The antioxidants present in Sunflower oil help prevent damage caused by free radicals, making it an effective ingredient for reducing split ends, dryness, and brittleness of hair. Furthermore, sunflower oil aids in restoring damaged cuticles, helping to seal moisture into the scalp.
