Spotlight on… Sunflower

Cheerful, bright sunshine on a stem, sunflowers have a special place in our hearts (Shire Farm wouldn’t be the same without them). Not just pretty things loved by bees and hoverflies, they’re also multi-tasking health and beauty heroes thanks to their antioxidant and nutrient-rich seeds.


And how fitting that this complexion-boosting powerhouse was first cultivated for its beauty – sunflowers were initially brought to Europe from North America to adorn gardens as ornamental plants…


  1. Why your skin loves sunflower oil


Mild scent, check. Light texture, check. Sunflower oil is absorbed quickly and leaves no oily residue (just a silky feeling), making it an ideal addition to beauty formulations. And that’s not all.

Dreaming of supple, hydrated skin? Sunflower oil is packed with vitamin E, a supercharged antioxidant that does double duty by locking in moisture as well as protecting your complexion from environmental damage. High concentration of linoleic acid (omega-6) in sunflower oil also adds to its skin-soothing powers, making it ideal for dry or irritated complexion in need of some TLC.
