Carotene Infused Sunflower Oil is a highly moisturizing oil produced by infusing a carotene-concentrate derived from algae into sunflower oil.  Sunflower Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, primarily oleic (C18:1).The high oleic acid content, among other effects, has a positive effect on the oxidative stability of this oil.

When beta-carotene (Vitamin A) is applied topically to the skin, it converts to an active form of retinol. Retinol has been shown to boost collagen production, and cell turnover, as well as fade pigmentation.

The rich combination of naturally occurring omega fatty acids makes Carotene Infused Sunflower Oil a superior emollient that helps rebuild, moisturize and rehydrate skin cells, strengthen hair and acts as an antioxidant on the skin.
