          There are two main types of refined safflower oil.
          1.    High Linoleic acid safflower oil
          2.    High Oleic acid safflower oil
          High Oleic acid safflower oil is chosen mainly for its greater stability and longer shelf life, however both forms have improved shelf life over unrefined.
          Safflower oil High in polyunsaturated Linoleic acid creates a barrier that helps the skin to retain moisture and softens dry areas. Its hydrating properties lend skin a healthy glow, promote elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles. Linoleic acid cannot be synthesized by the body so it is an essential fatty acid necessary for good health. It also has better antibacterial qualities useful for minor skin problems such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
          Safflower oil may also slow hair fall by nourishing the hair follicle and scalp while the mild anti-infective qualities reduce the severity of attacks on hair and scalp. The oleic acid improves circulation to the surface of the scalp.
         The oil is light, fast absorbing and non-greasy.
         Naturally extracted vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopherol) added for improved shelf life.
