Borage Oil | (Starflower Oil) Borago officinalis

Borage has a long history of medicinal, culinary, and decorative use especially in Europe where it grows wild around the Mediterranean.

Today, the plant is harvested for its seeds, which when cold-pressed yield an oil having an abundant supply of the Omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid.

Numerous clinical studies of Borage oil reveal that its therapeutic effectiveness is achievable when the oil is administered either orally or topically. Indeed, topical applications of Borage were often found to provide the same level of efficacy as ingestion of the oil in capsule form. Moreover, even those skin areas to which Borage oil was not directly applied nonetheless benefited from Borage’s high GLA content and other properties transmitted by dermal absorption and synthesis.

Containing 20% to 24% GLA, the pale yellow oil leaves a slightly oily texture on the skin. Borage is an excellent treatment for numerous dermal conditions and for all skin types especially mature skin. Regarded as a top-notch tissue rejuvenator, it noticeably restores devitalized, sun-damaged or otherwise weather-damaged skin.
