The high contents of omega 6 fatty acids can assist with skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is rapidly absorbed by the skin, so it makes a good massage oil. It is light and dry and you can use it wherever you might use a high linoleic oil or in cosmetic formulations to tone up the skin. It is widely used in skin with acne and cellulite. There are some good phytosterols in this oil which are 0.8% to 1.5% unsaponifiable. It contains campesterol, beta-sitosterol, and stigmasterol, all of which helps protect the skin's moisture barrier and relieves itching due to dry skin. With a high content of linoleic acid the oil provides moisturizing benefits and prevents water loss. It is a great choice for any skin care formulation meant for dull and stressed skin.
