Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) Oil, once known as the “Kings Cure All”, is very high in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an essential fatty acid (Omega-6) that is renowned for keeping the skin healthy.
GLA plays an important role in maintaining a youthful complexion and repairing damaged skin. We recommend using our Evening Primrose oil diluted at 10-20% in other carrier oils, creams, lotions or balms. Its exceptionally fine texture and nourishing qualities make it popular in beauty treatments for softening, soothing, moisturising and boosting the skin’s natural elasticity. It is excellent for skin that is showing signs of ageing, or skin that is dry, damaged, scarred or inflamed. It can also help treat chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. In addition to its skincare benefits, Evening Primrose oil is thought to help balance hormonal fluctuations and reduce hyperactivity in infants and children.
