Broccoli seed oil doesn’t just contain helpful fatty acids — it also contains Vitamin A. Some people are turning to Broccoli Seed Oil as a healthier alternative to prescription or over-the-counter retinoid or retinol products. These products all utilize a form of Vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself faster.
This speedier skin cell turnover rate is why so many people love these products for hydration. However, these retinoids are not without their concerning side effects. Retinoid risks include redness, dryness, irritation, skin color changes, sunlight sensitivity, swelling, crusting or blistering. Broccoli seed oil provides vitamin A without undesirable side effects.
In addition to Vitamin A, Broccoli Seed Oil also contains Linoleic Acid, which promotes ceramide synthesis. Why is this great for skin health? Ceramides, found in the top layer of the skin, not only regulate the skin cells, but they also help form a protective layer that retains moisture and visibly plumps the skin. By promoting ceramide production, broccoli seed oil can be especially helpful to mature skin that’s looking for added moisture and a more youthful appearance — another way to help naturally slow the signs of aging.
Apply a drop or two of Broccoli Seed Oil into any dry areas of your body. Use more oil if the area of concern is larger. Massage the oil in lightly until it is absorbed. It can also help calm skin inflammation and irritation.
