Want in on a bigtime beauty secret? One of the biggest up-and-coming beauty hacks is broccoli seed oil. It’s the perfect ingredient in a prime woman’s skin care routine, because it’s helpful to mature skin that’s looking for added hydration and a more youthful appearance by way of the resulting plumping.
(Yes, yet another ingredient that seems to belong in the kitchen. However, that’s the beauty of organic skin care!)
Basically, broccoli seed oil provides a natural deterrent to free radicals (otherwise known as pollution particles), which are responsible for a lot of the ‘damage’ to our skin, but are often overlooked as a concern with the conversation typically revolving around sun damage.
Boosts Hydration By Activating Ceramides.
Linoleic Acid, targets ceramide synthesis. Ceramides are the structures that tell all the other the skin cells what to do, and also helps create a protective layer that visibly ‘plumps’ the skin. (So, ‘plump’ is a weird word, right? Can we all agree on this?)
May Offer Skin Cancer Protection
According to the chemist Marie-Veronique Nadeau. the oil can help protect against skin cancer. “Broccoli seed oil contains sulforaphane, a compound which mobilises cellular defences that protect the skin against UV damage,” she said in an interview with Fashionista.

“How wonderful it is to find a product that does what it advertises. I use this oil every night (after my retinA) and I wake up with clear, rosy, bright, moisturized and unblemished skin. How great is that?” cindyfn
“This is a lovely, effective oil that smooths nicely over serums without pilling, and works well daytime with moisturizer cream. It just plain ‘boosts’ my serums and daily moisturizer.” DLThorne
“I have combo skin that is very sensitive. I have tried a few oils and this one is my favorite, I finally went with the big bottle. Many products cause irritation and even hives on my skin. I recently started using retinol and put this oil on top to prevent over drying and irritation.” –anonymous
