• Ingredient spotlight: Evening Primrose Oil


    On many labels, Evening Primrose Oil is just one of the many ingredients you don’t notice. In fact, this plant gets a lot of praise for its benefits in skincare. Acne problems? Dry skin? This is one ingredient you should be looking for!

    First of all, don’t miss the chance to hydrate and nourish your skin with prime-quality fatty acids derived from this beautiful flower. The Evening Primrose flower seeds are the very source of the oil extract used in skincare, a natural oil with great components such as ~10% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and minerals like magnesium and zinc. As a herbal supplement, this flower has been used for hundreds of years to treat asthma, wounds, or infertility. Taken internally, it improves blood circulation and prevents hair loss.

    Acne is just one of the skin conditions Evening Primrose Oil treats, both internally and topically. With great anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, this ingredient can be taken as a supplement (capsules) or applied directly on the affected area (oil, ointments). Topical application reduces blackheads and breakouts by dissolving pore-clogging sebum. It will also help with excessive dryness caused by other harsh acne treatments and will balance acne-prone skin to help skin regenerate faster.

    On dry skin, it works wonders. Emollient and softening, Evening Primrose revives dull, sagging skin. With efficient moisturizing properties, it soothes dry and sensitive skin. Because of the rich content of linoleic acid this oil is also beneficial for chronic conditions like eczema or dermatitis.
