This rich oil is made from cold-pressed Evening Primrose seeds (Oenothera biennis) and is high in vitamins and minerals, making it a wonderful emollient and anti-inflammatory that nourishes, protects, and conditions. Since it leaves a very oily feeling on the skin, it is excellent for moisturizing dry, aging or chapped skin. Organic Evening Primrose Oil contains a high concentration of a fatty acid called Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). This fatty acid is largely responsible for remarkable healing properties, cell structure, and improving the skin’s elasticity. The high GLA content of this oil makes it valuable for the healthy functioning of body tissues and will help to relieve conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, PMS, menopause, arthritis, and high blood pressure.
