Ingredient Spotlight 2 : Organic Sunflower Seed Oil

te+te Sunflowers


A special spotlight is due for one of our sunniest ingredients, organic sunflower seed oil. This clean moisturizing ingredient can be spotted in our Hinoki Moisturizer, which features a plant-based and lightweight formula that quenches dry and dehydrated skin. 

Similar to many of our other choice ingredients, its benefits and use aren’t recent news. In fact, sunflower seed oil is another ingredient with a lot of history as a treatment discovered and used by ancient peoples. Notably, sunflowers were cultivated by Native American tribes and used to treat snakebites as well as to condition the skin and hair. 

Aside from its cultural and historical significance, sunflower seed oil is non-comedogenic (meaning, it doesn’t clog pores) and is an effective skincare essential. Organic sunflower seed oil is high in Vitamin E which helps to combat inflammation, redness, and irritation. It helps retain moisture, keeping skin hydrated for longer periods of time. Vitamin E helps to create a barrier which can protect skin cells from harmful agents stemming from environmental exposure.

Thanks to this protective function both against environmental factors as well as the protection that it provides for collagen and elastin, it is also often referred to as an anti-aging skincare solution. Organic sunflower seed oil is one of the most hardworking ingredients for both summer and winter with both its protective and long-lasting hydrating properties making it the perfect member of the Hinoki Moisturizer ingredient club! 

The Hinoki Moisturizer blends organic sunflower seed oil with organic ingredients including hydrating aloe vera and shea butter, together with TeplusTe’s naturally antiseptic and antimicrobial hinoki essential oil. The Hinoki moisturizer is carefully balanced at a pH of 5-6, the ideal pH level for skin.
