  • Primrose oil is derived from evening primrose, a yellow flowering herb native to the Americas. It is a natural source of omega-6 fatty acids that help to maintain optimal health. The structure and function of the skin, the largest organ in the body, is dependent on fatty acids.
  • LA accounts for approximately 12% of fatty acids in the skin. It is essential to maintain epidermal barrier integrity, which protects against environmental factors and the loss of electrolytes and water.
  • Omega-6 fatty acid deficiencies have been associated with impaired epithelial cell function, including the loss of moisture in the skin and eyes.
  • In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, daily supplementation with primrose oil for three months significantly improved the firmness, elasticity and barrier function of the skin in adults with dry skin.
  • Recent research indicates that long term primrose oil supplementation may be required to improve skin health as it takes over four weeks for skin cells to regenerate and for a new fatty acid equilibrium to be reached.
