Sunflower Oil


Sunflower oil is the non-volatile oil compressed from sunflower (Helianthus annuus) seeds. Sunflower oil is commonly used in food as a frying oil, and in cosmetic formulations as an emollient. Sunflower oil was first industrially produced in 1835 in the Russian Empire. The world's largest sunflower oil producers now are Ukraine, Russia and Argentina.

Sunflower oil is a monounsaturated polyunsaturated  mixture of mostly oleic acid (omega-9)-linoleic acid (omega-6) group of oils. The oil content of the seed ranges from 22 to 36% (average, 28%): the kernel contains 45–55% oil. The expressed oil is of light amber color with a mild and pleasant flavor; refined oil is pale yellow. Refining losses are low and the oil has good keeping qualities with light tendency for flavor reversion. The oil contains appreciable quantities of vitamin E, sterols, squalene, and other aliphatic hydrocarbons, terpene and methyl ketones (chiefly methyl nonyl ketone)

Sunflower oil is mainly a triglyceride, a typical constituent is shown.The British Pharmacopoeia lists the following profile:
    Palmitic acid (saturated): 5%
    Stearic acid (saturated): 6%
    Oleic acid (monounsaturated omega-9): 30%
    Linoleic acid (polyunsaturated omega-6): 59%

    Sunflower oil is mainly triglycerides (fats), typically derived from the fatty acids linoleic acid (with is doubly unsaturated) and oleic acid.

Several types of sunflower oils are produced, such as high linoleic, high oleic and mid oleic. Mid-oleic sunflower oil typically has at least 69% oleic acid. High oleic sunflower oil has at least 82% oleic acid. Variation in unsaturated fatty acids profile is strongly influenced by both genetics and climate. In the last decade, high stearic sunflower lines have been developed in Spain to avoid the use of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the food industry.[6][7]

The phosphatides (0.1–0.2%) present in the oil are lecithin (38.5%) and cephalin (61.5%); they occur in combination with protein and carbohydrates.

Sunflower oil also contains lecithin, tocopherols, carotenoids and waxes. Sunflower oil's properties are typical of a vegetable triglyceride oil. Sunflower oil is produced from oil type sunflower seeds. Sunflower oil is light in taste and appearance and has a high vitamin E content. It is a combination of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats with low saturated fat levels.

Pumpkin Seed Oil

                                           Pumpkin seed oil is rich in many nutrients including vitamin A, vitamin E, Zinc and precious omega 3 and omega 6. Pumpkin seed oil contains male hormone activator that can prevent prostate and improve male sexual function, so it is especially known as male healthy nutritional oil.
1.) Linoleic acid and linolenic acid in the oil show the obvious function in protecting and treatment for diabetes, to stimulate secretion of insulin in the body, prevent constipation, lower weight.
2.) Pumpkin seed oil is named as the health food for male sexual function which is given by the works of the God in foreign countries, the fatty acids are good for Male Sexual function, play the role in protecting and treatment of urinary system and prostate diseases.
3.)pumpkin seed oil has great healing qualities for skin problems such as sores and ulcers which makes it a good choice to include when mixing a massage oil or preparing a carrier oil blend.
