Evening Primrose (Oenthera Biennis) Oil, once known as the "Kings Cure All”, is very high in gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an Omega-6 fatty acid, an essential fatty acid which is responsible for maintaining healthy skin. GLA can offer critical help in reducing the signs of ageing and helping to repair weather or atmospheric skin damage. Evening Primrose Oil is also believed to have a soothing effect on hormonal fluctuations and can, in many cases, help with chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. This carrier oil is exceptionally expensive so it is unusual to use 100% Evening Primrose Oil in a treatment.
Professional Tip: The experts at Base Formula recommend that it is added to another carrier oil in very small quantities e.g. the contents of one capsule into a tablespoonful of Almond or Grapeseed oil.
