Evening Primrose Oil, 10% GLA
CAS No.  90028-66-3


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 should 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.

Absolute best customer service on the web! I am most impressed with the high quality packaging and array of nice products - especially the East African Shea butter which is the best shea i have used to date especially for facial care. Thanks again

I have been a customer with Lotioncrafter for several years. I love their products and keep up with the latest ingredients offered, via Swiftcraft blog. They have one of the fastest delivery services on the internet. You earn points with each purchase and it doesn't take long for them to add up. I use them often and Lotioncrafter gives me back with every purchase. My favorite formulas are their Hydrating and Conditioning moisturizers with Resveratrol, NAG and Niacinamide. Check them out...you won't be disappointed. I give them to my coworkers and they love them. I use many of their extracts in Toners and Facial cleansers. I don't have a business. This is one of many Home craft's I enjoy and my skin enjoys too. I just purchased their tiny white snap on pump containers, perfect for samples for friends and family and carrying on Airlines. I can't wait to use them. Rarely do I NOT find what I'm looking for on this website. Thanks for your wonderful service.
