The Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil

The Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil

In use since the 17th Century, Evening Primrose Oil is well known for its beneficial properties and has been a stable in herbal medicine. Extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose plant, it is particularly useful to maintain and restore female health. 

Evening Primrose Oil also has powerful properties when it comes to beauty – skin and hair care. Extremely rich in Omega-6 fatty acid, Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), it has great moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps lock in moisture, ensuring the skin stays hydrated and soft. It also supplies nutrients and healthy fats which work to plump up skin and promote an even skin texture. The antioxidants present in the oil tackle the damage causing free radicals to restore and repair aging and damaged skin. It also helps reduce redness, itchiness, swelling, and other forms of skin irritations and inflammations.

Evening Primrose is not just for your skin and hair

Evening Primrose Oil is also extremely useful in balancing hormones. This is a vitally important property since our food and personal care products are loaded with toxins which mimic estrogen in our body and case hormonal imbalances. These imbalances can wreak havoc on your skin and hair resulting in everything from hair loss to acne and even eczema. Evening Primrose Oil helps restore the delicate equilibrium of the endocrine system which in turn also helps in reducing acne and other skin and hair issues caused by hormonal imbalances. 

It also reduces hyperpigmentation resulting in the lightening of dark spots and patches on the skin. Hyperpigmentation is the result of excess melanin production in certain areas of the body such as the knees, elbows, and intimate areas. The toning properties of evening primrose oil even out skin and reduce hyperpigmentation. 

Evening Primrose Oil is also just as beneficial to hair and nail care. Rich in stearic, oleic and palmitic acid, it not only conditions and protects hair from damage without diminishing its luster or weighing it down, it also combats dandruff and promotes hair growth. These properties also ensure it works to strengthen nails, protecting them from becoming brittle and easily prone to damage. 

Firm believers in the beneficial properties of this powerful botanical oil, we have a wide range of products that harness these properties for to ensure your best skin and hair.
