Safflower seed oil is obtained from the seed extracts of the same plant. It is a thistle-like, annual plant with limited cultivation worldwide. Safflower seeds have been used typically as dyes in the past, but in recent years they have been used for several purposes.

Complete Safflower Oil Production Process
The machine and process involves in safflower oil processing plant is listed here for reference.
- Safflower Seeds Pealing
Safflower seeds should through the peeling process to remove the shell and get the kernels of safflower seeds. This this raw materials for safflower oil extraction. This process is same with sunflower seed oil or sesame seeds oil processing.
Raw materials may be cooked or steamed to control the temperature and moisture so it can be easily squeezed out of the oil.
Mechanical extruding force by the flaking machine make the raw materials into smallest pieces, which creates more favorable conditions for the safflower oil extraction process.
- Oil Extraction
Using screw oil press or oil extraction machine to make the oil from the seeds to get the crude safflower oil.
Organic impurities contained in the crude oil can be removed with filter press or other oil filter machines.
- Oil Refining
This is an optional process, some of the safflower oil processing plant doesn’t require the oil refining process, while, some will equip it. Oil refining is the deep processing of the safflower oil production. It is all decided by the final using purpose. (Related Equipment: Low Cost Mini Oil Refinery)

- Improves heart health and lowers cholesterol
- Helps control diabetes: Experts recommend that people may use high-quality dietary fats in combination with diabetes therapy to lessen the complications of the disease, particularly type-2 diabetes.
- A good source of fatty acids: It contains a good amount of both mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids.
- Safe for high-temperature cooking: No free-radicals (harmful) are generated due to overheating of Safflower seed oil. This is because the oil contains a high amount of heat stable oleic acid (fatty acids).
Other Benefits Apart from Edible Oil Production
- Good for dry skin: The topical application of safflower oil to the inflamed and dry skin can contribute to a soothing effect, making it smooth and soft.
- Controls inflammation: Safflower oil could also possess anti-inflammatory activities.
