Borage oil is a natural substance that provides high levels of the fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a strong anti-inflammatory found in certain plant oils.
Borage is applied to the skin for red, itchy rash on the scalp of infants (seborrheic dermatitis) and is also used in a dressing to soften the skin. For everyday use, Borage oil has been shown to be very effective in treating the redness, inflammation and moisture loss associated with dry skin.
Whether you take Borage Oil orally or apply it to your skin it appears to positively affect the texture, suppleness and moisture content of skin.
Borage oil used in Soaphoria products is sourced with respect to the environment and sustainable development.
