Evening primrose oil is produced from the seeds of the nightshade flower. The oil from the ripe seeds contains the anti-inflammatory omega 6 fatty acid gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which in studies has been shown to be toxic to cancer cells. The oil is considered to be especially good for those who suffer from eczema or other problem skin. It strengthens the skin's cells and gives lifeless skin radiance and increases elasticity. Prevents the skin's aging process and wrinkles.
The plant originally comes from North America but is now found all over the world.
