Evening Primrose Oil(EPO) is derived from a tall spiky wild plant(Onagraceae family) that only blooms at night, hence its common name; its origins can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome. Vital component is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)(10% mininmum), which singularly promotes cellular health. Very essential as the human body cannot synthesize them. EPO, in combination with its strong nourishing characteristics, provides ease of spreading, excellent penetration, and significant moisture retention. It is regularly used in cosmetics, toiletries, over-the-counter topicals, and nutraceuticals to promote healthy cell regeneration.

As it is completely pure, it can be used in any skin care recipe.

Its unique nutritional regenation potential and softening capabilities makes it very appropriate for treatment of wrinkled and dry skin, scar healing etc. It reduces transepidermal water loss by restoring the hydrolipidic film.

It has also been determined as an ideal product for skin restructuring in connected disorders like eczema, psoriasis, urticaria etc. Excellent nutritional supplement. It is biodegradable and is USDA-NOP certified organic
