Evening Primrose CO2 extract Organic

Evening Primrose CO2 extract is a good source of Omega 6 fatty acids and contains a high quantity of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is a very rare fatty acid found in evening primrose oil. Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) is an unsaturated fatty acid closely related to the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid. Both are substances the body needs to create prostaglandins. The skin needs prostaglandins to prevent dryness and loss of suppleness. Lack of GLA will make the skin age more quickly and be less tolerant to sunlight and any damage to the skin will take longer to heal. Evening primrose oil penetrates down and into the skin, which as a result becomes softer and is less prone to problems. It has a moisture-retaining effect and prevents drying of the skin.
