- Sunflower oil, like other oils, can retain moisture in the skin.
- It may also provide a protective barrier that resists infection in pre-term infants.
Studies using sunflower oil have been conducted involving low birth weight pre-term infants that are often susceptible to infection due to their underdeveloped skin. The study determined that infants receiving a daily skin treatment of sunflower oil were 41% less likely to develop infections in hospital.
