Evening Primrose Oil
100 ml - Organic Virgin Oil extracted from first cold pressing
Evening Primrose is native to the northern temperate regions of North America where it is found growing in dry, sandy and sunny soils. The Amerindians ate the root and seeds of this plant and used it externally to treat bruises, hemorrhoids and skin conditions. Pharmacological study of Evening Primrose only started in the 20th century when its high fatty acid content was discovered. This plant then began to be grown in North America, Europe and Australia. Nowadays, we use the oil extracted from its seeds.
Properties: Evening Primrose Oil gets its reputation from its moisturising action. It is rich in linoleic acid and gamma-linoleic acid, essential fatty acids that are not produced by the human body and which promote the permeability of the epidermis. This oil thus improves the condition of the skin and above all its suppleness. Softening and revitalising, it also has an anti-wrinkle action and is recommended for skin problems and as a treatment for eczema.
