Evening primrose oil soothes the skin and prevents it from drying out, giving a healthy glow, as well as a soft and supple feeling.

Description

Description

The oil is extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis), which is actually a relative of willow grasses and not primroses. It is also known as ‘fever plant’ and ‘king’s cure-all’, which says a lot about its traditional use as a sedative, anti-inflammatory and painkiller.

Evening primrose oil is known to calm inflammation when applied topically and is therefore often recommended for acne and eczema. Its soothing and humectant properties are attributed to gamma-linoleic (GLA) and linoleic acids. It is said that GLA also enhances the antioxidant properties of vitamin E.

Lush purchase this oil from China. It is organic and cold-pressed, which means that no solvent is used to extract the oil from the seeds.
