Evening Primrose Oil, 10% GLA

Evening Primrose Oil is harvested from the seed of the Evening Primrose, a wildflower native to Eastern and Central North America and found in parts of Asia and Europe. It is now cultivated in more than 30 countries, primarily to produce the dietary supplement EPO, with China producing more than 90% of the annual supply.  Evening Primrose seeds have very high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid also known as "omega-6".  The oil can contain up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid and 70% linolenic acid, which the body turns into GLA. 

Evening Primrose oil shoud be kept in the refrigerator to extend its shelf life.  When using it in products, add an antioxidant like Rosemary Oleoresin Extract to protect the oil and prolong your product's shelf life as well.

Our Customers Say...
I can't believe I didn't find you guys earlier. I have been making skin care for almost 20 years. It has almost been a challenge as a small manufacturer to buy small quantities of high quality skin care ingredients, and yet here you were just across Puget Sound.
George Tindalls

I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.

Ordered the argan oil several months ago. This product is amazing!..and I'm ordering more. I have below the shoulder relaxed hair thats fairly healthy so I didn't think I would see such a dramatic result. My hair texture is now more silky and stronger! Ordering is fast and easy, customer service is great!!! Can't thank you enough!

First time ordered on 10th October, 2011 and am just loving the information sent on tracking my order from USA to Australia.. well done
Colleen Hagarty, (Jordella)

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.
