Our Evening Primrose Oil is a rich yellow colour with a slight nutty fragrance. It is light in nature with a nice texture and absorbs well into your skin. This is a fantastic anti-aging oil and can also benefit problem skin conditions like acne and eczema.
Evening Primrose (oenothera biennis) is a common plant with yellow flowers which only open in the evening, hence the name. Cold-pressing the seeds produces Evening Primrose Oil and ensures the maximum nutrients are retained.
What are the key benefits of Evening Primrose Oil?
- It is very rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and Omega 6 fatty acids. These help your body to maintain healthy skin and nails and produce prostaglandins. A deficiency of these will cause dryness, wrinkles and aging whilst making your skin more prone to damage. Essential fatty acids help combat these issues and nourish your skin to leave it feeling soft and supple.
- Evening primrose oil is a wonderful moisturiser. The rich texture softens skin and helps with moisture retention. This makes it especially beneficial for dry skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
- It penetrates well, helping to soften skin and promote suppleness. Evening primrose oil is great for general skin health by supplying skin with nutrients and healthy fats. These can help your skin appear more youthful and prevent wrinkles.
- Organic Evening Primrose Oil also has good anti-inflammatory properties. This helps reduce redness, swelling and itching. Whilst assisting dry skin conditions this can also benefit acne. Evening Primrose is known for reducing hormone imbalances and applying a few drops to facial skin can help reduce and heal spots and pimples.
