Borage Seed Oil 22% GLA, Refined

The oil factor

O&3 presents Borage Seed Oil 22% GLA, Refined

O&3 presents Borage Seed Oil 22% GLA, Refined. This popular oil is utilised in both the personal care & nutritional sectors. This widely grown crop in the UK is highly functional, benefits include high content of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), a key essential fatty acid. In fact this oil is the richest source of GLA hence why it continues to be a popular inclusion in the formulation world. The seed itself is cold pressed which aids in preserving the oils inherent benefits, but we then slightly refine it for those that want a transparent/odourless oil. The GLA content aids wrinkling/ageing, stretch marked skin and applies the necessary nutrients to mend any skin cell damage. Our very own mother applies a few drops a day to her face and that's why she looks 30! ;)
