With 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.
Evening Primrose Oil is packed with essential fatty acids that support skin health and reduce inflammation. 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.
In addition to helping those with skin conditions, studies published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science have shown that Evening Primrose oil can also support age related structural and function change in skin tissue, such as redness, firmness, roughness, and fatigue.
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.
