Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil

Also-called-like-this: Safflower Seed Oil
What-it-does: antioxidant, emollient
Irritancy: 0
Comedogenicity: 0-2


The oil coming from the seeds of the yellow flowered safflower plant. Similar to other plant oils, it's loaded with nourishing and moisturizing fatty acids: it's a high linoleic acid oil (70%) and has only smaller amounts of oleic acid (11%) (this might be great for acne-prone skin). It also contains antioxidant vitamin E (44mg/100g alpha-tocopherol).
