Evening primrose oil
Made from the cold pressed seeds of the beautiful flowers that grace our gardens near sunset, this yellow/orange un-fragranced oil of medium texture is a must have oil to keep your skin in tip top shape.
The perfect skincare oil as it is moisturising, softening, and remarkably soothing to dry or irritated skin conditions, due to its substantial levels of linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid, both of which fatty acids help the body fight the ageing process.
These vitamin-like substances cannot be manufactured by the body and are essential for healthy cell function. Most importantly, they are a vital component of the fluid lipid film that coats the skin's surface and controls elasticity, moisture and softness. If you want a clear complexion with a vibrant youthful glow look no further. It contains everything the body needs to fight the ageing process.
This oil is cold pressed. Cold refers to the item being kept at a low temperature during pressing and “pressed means the method of extraction. This method indicates that little or no heat or chemical additives were used to extract the oil from the evening primrose seeds (which can alter or destroy the flavours or aromas of the oil). It is a very natural way of producing the oil. The seed or nut is crushed, forcing out the oil. Seeds are dropped inside a cylinder that contains a rotating screw. This screw grinds and crushes the seeds until the oil is extracted. Small holes in the bottom of the cylinder allow the oil to escape into a container.
