What is Safflower Seed Extract?
Safflower seed extract is native to the Middle East and is widely cultivated throughout Europe, China, India, and the United States. A bushy annual that reaches approximately 1 m in height, it has shiny, oval, spiny-edged leaves that alternate around a single, smooth, upright stem. The plant produces profuse yellow to deep red flowers. Safflower produces a dry, one-seeded fruit known as an "achene" that is generally small and white and contains nuts with 1 seed. Seeds are produced in August and enclosed in a mass of down.1, 2, 3 Safflower roots extend 2 to 3 m into the soil, making them useful as rain-fed cropping systems.
Safflower seed extract is characterized by the presence of a high proportion of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, including linoleic (approximately 75%), oleic (13%), palmitic (6%), and stearic (3%), as well as other minor straight-chained fatty acids.6, 7, 8 Alpha- and gamma-tocopherol have also been described.9 Although safflower oil is a rich source of linoleic acid, the activity of delta 6-desaturase is required for its conversion to dihomogammalinolenic acid (DHGA) and arachidonic acid.
