Sunflower Oil - Our high oleic sunflower oil has large amounts of essential fatty acids as well as a high amount of Vitamin E. As one of the more cost effective oils, it is a good oil to blend with other base oils in massage or perfume bases. This oil does tend to leave a more oily feeling on the skin. Some soapmakers choose to use it in large percentages in their soaping recipes as a nice alternative to the higher priced Olive Oil. It helps to provide a stable, conditioning lather in soap. It is a more lightweight oil so it's wonderful in bath oils and lotions but does have a slow absorption rate (thus the oily feel). Refrigerate this oil to help increase the life of the oil. Some oil experts suggest a shorter shelf life than 6 months.

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:   Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil

Sunflower oil
I started experimenting with using sunflower oil a while back. I tried using it in bath oil but found it was a bit to greasy for me. I also tried cutting back on the amount of olive oil in my soap recipe and replaced it with sunflower oil. I found that it added a nice quality to my soaps. I've used it all now and I'm not sure if I'll keep it in my main recipe or not. If I decide I want to use it again I'll definitely order more from BB.
