Safflower ozonated oil

Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L) is a herbaceous plant in the Asteraceae family. Extracted from the seeds of safflowers, safflower oil is a rich source of various saturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acid (oleic acid) or essential n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) linoleic acid, depending on the flower type. Safflower oil with a higher content of polyunsaturated fatty acids is more commonly used as an edible oil. The constituents of safflower oil also include alpha-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, and mixed Tocopherol
