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.
