Safety / Purity
Sunflower carrier oil is a versatile and gentle oil that is considered a mild and safe oil for most skin types.
When applying essential oils to the face, it's recommended to use a lower dilution ratio due to the sensitivity of facial skin. If you have sensitive skin or are using essential oils that are known to be potent or potentially irritating, you may want to start with an even more diluted ratio. When using essential oils on children, the elderly, or individuals with sensitive skin, it's advisable to use an even more diluted ratio to ensure safety.
With essential oils, a little goes a long way. Using pure, undiluted essential oils does not mean you’ll achieve better, faster results or more benefits. When using Sunflower carrier oil as a base for essential oils, the recommended dilution ratio typically depends on the purpose of use and the specific essential oils you're using.
As part of our S.A.A.F.E. Promise™, we provide FAMES (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) test results from a verified third party, independent lab for each one of our essential oil products.
FAMES tests verify the purity and quality of all our oils, so you can trust that you're using the very best carrier oils and other essential oil products on the market.
