Cold pressed from seeds, Black Currant Seed Oil contains 6% - 19% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The oil is added to skin preparations and cosmetics. It is often combined with vitamin E to prevent oxidation, and is best added in small portions to blends with other oils to enrich them. Black Currant is noted for its anti-aging, moisturizing and restructuring properties as high GLA oils contribute to skin elasticity.
- Additional Info
Shelf Life: 6 months - 1 year. Refrigeration is recommended. All GLA rich oils are unstable and it is important to keep them refrigerated. It's also important to keep as much oxygen out of the bottle as possible. Rebottle into smaller sizes as the oil is depleted.
