Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis) - UnRefined (Organic) Cold Pressed,
Extracted from the flowers of the plant, Evening Primrose is
one of most precious plant oils. It is very supportive to the skin and is
considered a rejuvenating and regenerating oil that is easily absorbed and
seems to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. It is very rich in Linoleic
Acid, the Omega 6 essential fatty acid that is considered key to maintaining
good moisture levels in the skin and resulting skin health.
It is a bit viscous and most high-end natural body care
recipes ask for up to 10%. Even a smaller amount is said to result in
healthier, more balanced skin.
Sold as a supplement, it is valued for its high content of
Gamma-linolenic acid, vitamins and minerals.
