Safflower Oil is also known as Thistle Oil and is derived from the seeds of the plant. Safflower is native to arid environments having seasonal rain. It grows a deep taproot which enables it to thrive in drought conditions.
Safflower oil is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which make up to 80% of the content of the oil. Omega 6 is particularly good for oily skin, enlarged pores and other skin conditions. It blends well with other oils and it is recommended to blend it with softer oils such as Jojoba, Apricot Kernel or Sweet Almond for use in natural skin care.
Indigo Herbs is delighted to offer extremely high quality, cold pressed Safflower Oil - ideal for use on oily skin.
