Botanical Name - Oenothera biennis

Uses - Used for centuries for its therapeutic and nurturing properties, many natural cosmetics now include evening primrose oil as one of their key ingredients. A plentiful supply of Omega 6 helps optimise healthy skin regeneration and balance sebum production. An invaluable beauty oil, it is easily absorbed into the skin and is very anti-ageing. It has anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful in creams for eczema or irritated skins.
Organic Certificate - This oil is certified organic by the Soil Association, which means you can be sure that it has been produced to the highest ethical and environmental standards. The Soil Associationís standards exceed the UK government's minimum requirements for organic products in many areas, but particularly in animal welfare, GM and the use of pesticides. Standards are constantly reviewed to ensure they deal with current issues.
