Hello everyone, I found another fun source that I’ll be mainly using for today. It’s a Naturopathy Wiki created for and edited by naturopaths. http://www.ndhealthfacts.org
They have peer reviewed pieces, however they were reviewed by naturopathic institutes.
Luckily though, they did have a section on Skincare that had some references. One thing I noted is the fact they recommended seeking a naturopathic doctor if you are experiencing negative side effects.

Sunflower Seed and Acne Vulgaris
Sunflower Seed and Acne Vulgaris.

Size of Study
50 patients, aged 15-30
Sunflower seed intake seems to aggravate acne. However, effects seem low and thus more research needs to be done.
Controlled study, however factors like hormonal status and nutritional facts were presumed through randomisation.

Please Note: this page is to be updated, there is a couple more studies I would like to post in this category. I would just like to show you what I've been working on so far. Will be updating within a few days.
