Evening primrose is a plant native to North America which it only blooms in the evening. It was first used by the Indians and is a traditional herbal medicine that has been used for hundreds of years.

Evening primrose oil is rich in essential fatty acid "gamma-linolenic acid" (GLA), whose main function is to synthesize prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). PGE1 regulates the circulatory system, immune system, reproductive system and skin system. Low levels of GLA have been found in adults and children with skin irritations, as well as women with premenstrual syndrome. Evening primrose oil can help improve the situation.

The latest clinical study by BLACKMORES INSTITUTE has confirmed that after 12 weeks of using BLACKMORES® Evening Primrose Oil, more than 70% of users have more hydrated skin and improved dry lines*. The results also show that Evening Primrose Oil does not increase skin sebum secretion that causes acne problems.
