Benefits:

  • Evening Primrose (Virgin & Organic) Oil contains high levels of GLA essential fatty acids and is good for dry and mature skin.
  • Researchers believe some women experience PMS because they’re sensitive to normal prolactin levels in the body. GLA converts to a substance in the body (prostaglandin E1) thought to help prevent prolactin from triggering PMS.
  • It may reduce the severity of hot flashes, one of the most uncomfortable side effects of menopause.
  • The oil penetrates the skin making the skin softer and less prone to eczema and acne.
  • It has moisture retaining properties, prevents skin drying out, increases the cells' ability to absorb oxygen and withstand disease. 
  • It also soothes inflammation and can be used in dandruff applications. Small amounts are often added to other carrier oils for fortification.
  • A popular ingredient in many products for sensitive skin, products designed to heal scar tissue and wounds, in anti-wrinkle / skin rejuvenation face oils and serums as well as products that help skin infections such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
