Borage Seed Oil , 18% GLA
CAS No.  840112-16-8

Borage Oil is derived from the seeds of the Borago Officinalis (Borage) plant, also know as a starflower.  It is an annual herb native to the Mediterranean that has been naturalized in many regions.  Borage has one of the highest amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) of all seed oils. Because GLA is converted to precursors of a variety of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, it may have potential as an anti-inflammatory in cosmetic formulations.

Borage oil may be unsafe for use during pregnancy and should be avoided by those who are pregnant unless otherwise directed by an expert qualified in the appropriate use of the substance.

Because of the relatively short shelf life of this oil, we recommend it be kept under refrigeration.

We have been experiencing a disrupted ferry service schedule this week that will continue for another week at a minimum. The effect of this change in scheduling is that some UPS shipments may be 1 day longer to be delivered than usual. This especially affects expedited services like UPS Next Day, 2nd Day and 3 Day Select. This is a situation beyond UPS' control and they will NOT honor refunds for late delivery caused by the ferry service delays. We apologize for this inconvenience beyond our control.
