Safflower oil is, as the name suggests, taken from the seeds of the safflower plant (a brother of the sunflower). Safflower oil helps to retain moisture in the skin, is packed with vitamin E to provide antioxidants and thoroughly nourish the skin. It also contains an essential fatty acid called linoleic acid which, even though it doesn’t have the most exciting name, has some amazing virtues. Linoleic, when combined with sebum (skin’s natural oil) actually reduces the risk of clogged pores and can reduce the size of blemishes (including blackheads) on the skin.
