Evening primrose oil is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid of major importance to the health of every organ in the body. It is perfect for the use on skin to help deliver nutrients to keep skin healthy. Evening primrose oil can be used on eczema and psoriasis with great results. Use on hair and skin to help reduce dryness and act as a barrier to hold moisture in. As a natural astringent, evening primrose oil helps to keep oil production in the skin in control to help prevent acne.
