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.

Thanks for being there Jen!

Today is my 5th order from LotionCrafter. I really like their product. One product I ordered, the next time I purchased it from Whole Foods and I notice the difference in the quality of the product. I once placed an order and decided to change it about 2 hours later. It was to late. The order had already processed. They sell good quality products and shipment is fast. I usually don't like to pay shipping but for LotionCrafter I do because I do like their product and prices. Keep up the good work.
