Why Sunflower Oil 

Why Sunflower Oil?

At Greska's Carbon 60, we are committed to providing the highest quality product.

Why Sunflower Oil? Sunflower oil stands out as an excellent carrier for Carbon 60 due to its numerous health benefits and practical properties:

  • Healthy Seed Oil: Since it is cold-pressed, it has a low linoleic acid content (Omega 6) and retains its nutritional integrity without the use of hexane or other solvents. 

​Ongoing Innovation: At Greska's Carbon 60, sunflower oil consistently proves to be the superior choice for delivering the full benefits of our Carbon 60 supplement.

Sunflower oil is highly absorbent and does not block pores on the skin, which can cause blackheads. It is non-irritating for most people and can be used on all skin types, including dry, normal, oily, and acne-prone.

Sunflower oil is also rich in vitamins A, C, and D, making it effective in acne treatment. Sunflower oil's linoleic acid may regulate sebum oil in acne-prone skin, while its vitamin E fights inflammation.

The antioxidant properties of sunflower oil help prevent premature signs of aging, as it helps protect the skin from exposure to sunlight. Vitamin E in sunflower seed oil can help protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your face.

Sunflower oil is rich in vitamin E and also contains vitamins A, C, and D, making it effective in the treatment of acne. Sunflower oil contains vitamins and fatty acids that act as antioxidants to regenerate new skin cells and help your skin rid itself of acne-causing bacteria.  The high amount of beta-carotene, vitamin E, and fatty acids are essential for skin barrier repair.

The vitamin E and oleic acid in Carbon-60 sunflower oil can help protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your face.

Carbon-60 sunflower oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help lower skin redness and roughness. Carbon-60 sunflower oil is high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid, which helps decrease inflammation in the skin and enhances the development of new skin cells.

Intraperitoneal injections of C60-OO did not affect the lifespan of CB6F1 female mice. Finally, we conduct a lifespan and healthspan study in males and females C57BL/6 J mice comparing oral treatment with pristine C60-EVOO and EVOO alone versus untreated controls.

We failed to observe significant lifespan and healthspan benefits of C60-EVOO or EVOO supplementation compared to untreated controls, both starting the treatment in adult or old age.
