Evening primrose oil is a cold-processed oil, unrefined and yellow to amber in color. Evening primrose oil is rich in fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic and linoleic acids. Fatty acids are beneficial as both a supplement and as a topical application. Topically, organic evening primrose oil is ideal in products designed to help treat eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
A study was done in Switzerland showing that topical application of organic evening primrose oil improved moisture retention, firmness and reduced the roughness of skin. Consider using organic evening primrose oil in a face cream, serum, moisturizer, wash, eye treatment, hair treatment or soap bar.
