BORAGE SEED OIL (organic)
BOTANICAL NAME: Borago officinalis
OTHER NAMES: Starflower
WHAT IS IT
The borage herb (also known as Starflower) is an annual herb with bright blue star shaped flowers in the flowering plant family Boraginaceae. Native to Syria but now naturalized throughout Europe, Middle East, North Africa and South America. The small black seeds are cold pressed to yield a slight yellow greenish coloured oil.
WHY IS IT SO GOOD
Borage seed oil is an incredibly rich source (17 - 25%) of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) a polyunsaturated fatty acid (Omega-6) which play a most important role in the maintenance of healthy skin, improvement of skin functioning and for the alleviation of skin disorders.
This wonderful oil deeply moisturises skin with long-lasting hydration. It offers regenerative, anti-inflammatory and firming properties and helps to improve skin elasticity and restore smoothness. The balancing quality of borage oil gives it anti-inflammatory benefits to chronic skin disorders such as both eczema and acne.
