Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Seed Oil



Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Seed Oil description

Raphanus sativus (radish) seed oil is non-fragrant plant oil that's a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids, including oleic, erucic, palmitic, and linolenic, all of which help replenish skin by strengthening its surface against moisture loss. This plant oil also contains potent antioxidants known as flavonoids, including sulforaphane, and is capable of neutralising many types of free radicals before they can damage skin. The antioxidant benefits of this oil are also helpful in keeping other cosmetic ingredients stable in formulas.
