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.

Our Customers Say...
The shealoe butter is to die for. It is great on skin and very dry hair. I mixed a tablespoon of glycerin and honey quat in the shealoe butter. Pure perfection!! The moisture and sheen it gives is excellent. Also, the service is great. Received my items prompt and secure.
Dee

I received my certified organic refined Shea butter today and was extremely pleased. I must say that it is the BEST refined butter I have ever used. The texture is creamy and the feel is like silk, absolutely no odor and the feel of your skin is so soft and smooth. It's truly a nourishment. I'm almost speechless on the great quality of this product. I'm ordering 15 more pounds and sure to be back for more. Thank you Lotioncrafter for providing such an amazing product, you have a customer for life.
Shalice John, (Skin Commandments)

I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.
Nhan

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
Margaret

Wow! My second order and I'm still impressed! These folks go out of their way to help you save on shipping. The products are exactly as described and of excellent quality. The prices are fantastic. Shipping was insanely fast even though it was a holiday. Just wow! And THANK YOU!
