Many people are not aware that here are numerous benefits of using Soybean oil in your skin products.
Firstly it contains vitamins B,E and K and this vitamin content makes it a good anti-oxidant which helps to eliminate free radicals and boost the immune system.
It contains Ferulic acid, which studies have shown to be helpful in keeping skin healthy, and it is also a good source of both Linolenic and Linoleic acids which are essential fatty acids that help the body to absorb nutrients.
Soybean oil can be a good base for a moisturiser for those who have combination skin as it has a unique natural ability to both hydrate dry areas and decrease oil in greasy areas.
It is also an excellent choice for either a day cream or a night cream as it can help to protect the skin from the damage of UV rays and keep cell membrane intact as well as helping to heal any sun damage that has already occurred. It can regenerate damaged cells and repair damaged elastin fibres. It also encourages collagen production, which, along with the elastin fibres, helps to firm and tone the skin.
All these great properties mean that regular use of Soybean oil on the skin can improve skin blemishes, reduce age spots and acne and assist in overall skin tone and health. It can help to clear the skin and leave a healthy glow.
Research has also shown that using Soybean oil as a base when making a natural insect repellent with essential oils, can increase its protection time and effectiveness.
