Ingredient We Love: Sunflower
Posted on December 08 2021
We’re obsessed with nature-derived ingredients, and that’s why they’re part of the foundation of our brand.
One of our favorites is Sunflower—also known as Helianthus Annuus, Cetyl Palmitate, Octyl Palmitate, and Lecithin—which is a plant powerhouse that provides moisture to your skin while helping it retain water and strengthening the skin. No wonder we use this botanical in so many of our products! The secret of this annual blossom is that it’s a natural humectant full of antioxidants and vitamin E, which help to fight off environmental aggressions and give your complexion an extra powerful barrier. Simply said, Sunflower strengthens and hydrates your skin to give it a more fresh and healthy appearance. What’s not to love?
With far-reaching benefits including preventing premature aging by protecting the skin from exposure to sunlight, nourishing and strengthening the skin barrier, acting as a humectant to help other beneficial ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin, and protecting your face from environmental damage, this ingredient is more than just a pretty face—it brings out the natural radiance your skin was meant to have. And it goes without saying that Sunflower is vegan and gluten-free.
