It's a great natural moisturizer. It helps to hydrate and soften the skin without leaving a greasy residue. It is high in Omega 6 + 9 which helps to calm irritated and stressed skin. We even include it in our lube for this very reason.
Fewer signs of aging
Free radicals are not our friend. Broccoli seed oil is rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause premature aging, wrinkles, and fine lines.

It contains Vitamin C, which is essential for collagen production. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin firm and supple.
Since it contains Vitamin C you always want to be on the look out for products that use it in combination with Sodium Benzoate. Read about this super common skin product stabilizer that’s often used in organic products should always be avoided in combination with Vitamin C!
