Description – Sunflower oil is economical and easy to work with, often overlooked in cosmetic applications. It is often used as the medium for macerating oils or diluting essential oils thanks for its stability and inert nature. This is cold pressed sunflower oil which is a superior quality, more nutrient rich oil than that which is mass produced by solvent extraction for use in the food industry and supermarkets. Its strong smell and taste is removed during processing.
The pant matter used to produce organic oils is grown without the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides. There are also strict controls related the growing and extraction of the oil to minimise negative environmental impact and ensure sustainability.
