Plant Oils As Sunscreens

Plant oils as sunscreens

Researchers have found that some plant oils contain natural sunscreens. For example, sesame oil resists 30% of UV rays, whereas coconut, peanut, olive, and cottonseed oils block out about 20%. Although mineral oil does not resist any UV rays, it helps to protect skin by dissolving the sebum secreted from oil glands, thus assisting evaporation from the skin.

Also Red Raspberry Seed, Cranberry Seed, Carrot Seed, and Jojoba have been linked to sun protection.

Most of I'm Fabulous Cosmetics skin care products are created with plants oils that been linked to sun protection.
