Ozone has potent germicidal properties. Because of this, we use it for disinfection and sanitization in a variety of industries. In recent years, practitioners have also used it in dermatology to help with allergic diseases, wound healing, and ulcer recovery. These benefits make ozone popular in combination with an oil, such as sunflower oil, for topical usage. (3)
Sunflower oil is rich in omega-6 and -9 fatty acids, making it more reactive to ozone compared to other oils. These fatty acids make Ozonated Sunflower Oil our second most potent oil and, with its natural supply of vitamins, it provides many skin benefits. So, what can this oil do? (2)
Protect from Sun Damage
One vitamin in sunflower oil is vitamin E, which absorbs UVB light and is helpful for protecting the skin from damage caused by free radicalsA. To avoid this skin damage, apply the sunflower oil topically as a natural sunscreen. (1)
Because ozone has strong antimicrobial properties, it has positive effects on wound healing. One study in particular shows ozonated sunflower oil increased the inflammatory response of the affected area, which is the first step in the wound healing process, and to decrease wound size. (2)
“I was introduced to sunflower oil through a friend of mine and I’ve found this one on the internet since we don’t have it on sale in Canada. I work at a restaurant and burns and cuts are common. All I can say is that my scars are disappearing and the healing process is AWESOME. Faster than usual. The smell is a bit strong, but if you use it and cover it you should have no problem.” - Priscila K.

“My daughter’s hands had rashes for over 2 years. Tried every cream there is. After two days of using this oil, my daughter’s hands started to clear up.

This product saved my daughter’s skin.” - Natasha T.

Thanks to the abundance of omega-9 fatty acids in sunflower oil, it is a great ingredient to include in skin products to help preserve the epidermis and improve hydration in adult skin. It does this by enhancing skin barrier repair and promoting skin barrier homeostasisB. (4)
“After suffering from peeling facial skin that only got worse with 1000s of moisturizers, this has been a GOD SEND. Not only did it heal my dry irritated acne-prone face, it has allowed me to never have to wear makeup if I don’t want to. Forever customer. Tears of THANKFULNESS!” - Anonymous
Ozonated Sunflower Oil is also one of the most popular oils to use with pets. A lot of owners use it for their pet’s oral health and topically for wounds. A study shows the benefits of using Ozonated Sunflower Oil on animals. After topically applying the oil daily for a week, the oil helped improve the healing rate of the wound. (2)
“We use this product for a benign cyst our 14-year-old beagle has on his backside. Most vets recommend surgery, which can leave an animal incontinent. The sunflower oil keeps the cyst from getting inflamed and works great. My husband, a big doubter, even used the product on a cut on his skin and was surprised at how well it worked at healing.” - Ann O.
“Sunflower oil skin rescue remedy is wonderful. My dog had some hair loss on her tail. This product helped immensely. I used it for three weeks.” - Kaylah S.
