Organic Broccoli Oil-30ml
Broccoli Oil- Organic, Cold-pressed
INCI Name: Brassica Oleracea var. Italica.
Properties: Broccoli seed oil is loaded with moisturizing essential fatty acids, vitamin A (without undesirable side effects) and linoleic acid.
- As an alternative to synthetic silicone, broccoli seed oil can make an awesome addition to your hair care lineup. Using broccoli seed oil on your hair adds moisturizing fatty acids as well as vitamins that are essential to healthy hair growth. Applying broccoli seed oil for flyaways, frizz, split ends or just as a leave-in treatment adds a noticeable shine to improve the appearance of your hair.
- Prevents UV Damage- Broccoli seed oil may protect the skin from UV radiation and sunburns and therefore possibly help prevent skin cancer.
- Natural Alternative to Retinol- Broccoli seed oil doesn’t just contain helpful fatty acids — it also contains beneficial vitamins like vitamin A. Some people are turning to broccoli seed oil as a healthier alternative to prescription or over-the-counter retinoid or retinol products. These products all utilize a form of vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself faster.
- Anti-Aging Effects- In addition to vitamin A, broccoli seed oil also contains linoleic acid, which promotes ceramide synthesis. Why is this great for skin health? Ceramides, found in the top layer of the skin, not only regulate the skin cells, but they also help form a protective layer that retains moisture and visibly plumps the skin. By promoting ceramide production, broccoli seed oil can be especially helpful to mature skin that’s looking for added moisture and a more youthful appearance — another way to help naturally slow aging.
