Borage seed oil

Borage seed oil — contains some of the highest amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) of all seed oils. Because GLA is converted to precursors of a variety of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, it may have potential as an anti-inflammatory in cosmetic formulations. Borage Oil protects the skin's natural lipid barrier and provides essential lipids to the epidermis, smoothing rough, dry skin.
