Use: (Borago officinalis). Borage seed oil is clear and slightly thick with very little odor which is cold expeller pressed. It contains an abundance of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that the body uses to manufacture prostaglandins (hormone-like substances that balance and regulate cellular activity). It reduces the aging process of the skin and reverses damage from ultraviolet rays. This oil is used to treat PMS, endometriosis, and menopausal discomforts, as well as for psoriasis and eczema. This product does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).This product does not contain phthalates.
