Evening Primrose Oil 50ml

The compounds present in EPO may offer the following skin benefits:
  • improve hydration and elasticity.
  • reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
  • soothe itchy, dry, and irritated skin.
  • regulate sebum production.
  • treat and prevent breakouts.

Research does support the topical use of evening primrose oil for managing various skin concerns, including dryness and unevenness. These benefits likely stem from the oil’s high concentration of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (which plays a critical role in the synthesis of ceramides). Evening primrose oil also contains flavonoids and other antioxidants that can help protect your skin from external stressors.

Its healing benefits may be due to its gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid found in plant oils.

Description

EPO products may help reduce acne by balancing the body’s ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Essential fatty acids are fats that the human body cannot produce on its own. Therefore, people can only get them from dietary sources, such as plant oils, organ meat, and fish.

EPO naturally contains high quantities of omega-6 fatty acids. On average, EPO consists of about 70–74% linoleic acid and 8–10% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

Linoleic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that promotes skin health by:

  • reinforcing the skin barrier
  • preserving water in the epidermis
  • preventing skin infections
  • regulating sebum production

 

Warnings: Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or lactating, consult your healthcare practitioner before use.
