High Oleic Sunflower Oil has large amounts of essential fatty acids as well as a high amount of Vitamin E. Sunflower oil is a good oil to blend with other base oils in massage or perfume bases. This oil has a slow absorption rate so it does tend to leave a more oily feeling on the skin. It helps to provide a stable, conditioning lather in soap.
