Borage (commonly known as Starflower Oil) is a skin nurturing carrier oil rich in therapeutically active ingredients. It is suitable for all skin types but the experts at Base Formula advise that it is particularly good for mature, sensitive, damaged or hormonally influenced skin. It is also helpful for areas of scarring, cellulite and as an additional moisture boost for facial massage.
 
Starflower Oil (Borage), so called because of the fabulous star shape of its beautiful blue flowers, is pressed from the seeds of the Borage plant (Borago officinalis). Borage Seed Oil has the highest concentration of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) naturally found in any plant source (even higher than Evening Primrose Oil). GLA is an Omega-6 fatty acid, an essential fatty acid which cannot be produced in our body, but must be obtained from other sources such as food or essential oils. As well as fatty acids Borage (Starflower) Oil also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D andVitamin E.

Professional Tip: The experts at Base Formula recommend using Borage Seed Oil in a 50/50 blend with another carrier oil such as Almond Oil
