Organic borage seed oil has the highest percentage of the Omega 6 fatty acid Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) of all plant-derived oils. It is also high in Linoleic and Oleic acids as well as natural Vitamin E. The high amount of GLA makes this oil one of the best natural anti-inflammatory oils, high in skin regenerating properties. Studies have shown that GLA, used regularly on facial skin, helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles. Our organic borage seed oil is perfect in blends for anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing skincare products. It is suitable for all skin types and it is also a valuable addition to skincare products for the body. This oil supports the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema and seborrheic dermatitis.
