Safflower oil’s usefulness as a cooking oil and a skin care product stems from its healthy fat content. Safflower oil
is rich in omega-6 fats, also known as linoleic acids. It acts as heart-healthy cooking oil as well as a nourishing, clear carrier oil for sensitive skin. If you can’t obtain safflower oil, or have an allergy to it, other oils exist which can substitute for safflower oil for food or cosmetic use.
