So, what is evening primrose oil?

Evening primrose oil is a plant-based ingredient derived from the seeds of the evening primrose flower. It's rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a type of omega-6 fatty acid that has been linked to several health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving skin health, and potentially helping with hormonal balance. This oil is often used in skincare products due to its ability to hydrate and soothe dry or irritated skin. It can also be taken as a supplement to promote overall wellness. Additionally, some studies suggest that evening primrose oil may have anti-inflammatory effects that could benefit those with conditions like arthritis or asthma.
