Evening Primrose Oil for a Healthy Glow

20170703_083225With all the skin loving benefits of Evening Primrose it is surprising this powerhouse oil is not featured more often in skincare products.

Evening Primrose is a widely naturalized flower that can often be seen blooming on tall stalks along roadsides in the central United States. Evening Primrose Oil is pressed from the seeds of this wildflower.

In particular, this oil contains high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The GLA in Evening Primrose Oil is especially helpful to those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis.

The oil extracted from Evening Primrose seeds is very gentle, as a result it works great in a moisturizer. Be sure to check out Brown Barn Botanicals Primrose & Oak Daily Defense Moisturizer, which contains Evening Primrose Oil. We recommend applying AM and PM for best results.
