Information
 
Avena Borage Oil is also known as Starflower Oil, it is derived from the seeds of the borage plant, a large plant with blue, star-shaped flowers found throughout Europe and North Africa and naturalised to North America. Our Borage oil is cold pressed and contains a high amount (30%) of gamma linoleic acid (GLA) a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) which has anti-inflammatory properties. Borage oil is excellent for skincare especially dry or mature skin and it has been confirmed that the borage plant encourages the production of adrenaline which helps the body cope with stressful situations or for mental exhaustion and depression, it may also improve mood in menopausal depression. Our Borage oil is cold pressed and can be added to other carriers at 10% to 15% to give blends a boost. It can also be used undiluted as an intensive night treatment for the face or neck, restoring skin smoothness and flexibility, it  may help to reduce trans-epidermal water loss by restoring skin smoothness and flexibility. It maybe particularly good for use on people suffering from eczema and psoriasis.
