Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera Biennis Oil)

Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera Biennis Oil)

This wonderful oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant. Naturally Happy Skin use UK produced Evening Primrose Oil in our Sensitive Skin Recovery Hand & Body Cream and it’s brilliant stuff.

Evening Primrose Oil is full of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) that help to maintain healthy skin cell development, and, in turn, facilitate healing and skin repair. A natural source of Stearic Acid, a compound found to occur naturally in skin, Evening Primrose Oil will soften tough or dry skin, particularly given it’s high in Omega 9 Oleic Acids that also serve to increase radiance and skin suppleness.

A true superhero for sensitive skin, Evening Primrose Oil moisturises and enhances skin elasticity, promoting a healthy glow that is just as great for mature skin.
