Words by Anny Schneider

The oil extracted from the seeds of biennial evening primrose flowers (nammed also fever-plant or King's cure all) is known for its rich composition in linolenic and gamma linoleic fatty acids and its anti-wrinkle, antioxidant,  revitalizing and restructuring properties.

It is well suited for skin affected by hormonal changes.

Evening primrose is not very comedogenic but sensitive to oxidation because it is highly polyunsaturated.

Keep cool or in small amber glass containers.

More information

Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) is an herbaceous plant whose Latin name oenothera comes from the Greek oinos (wine) and thêr (wild animals) : it was said that Evening Primrose roots soaked in wine were able to tame wild animals. 

The oil extracted from the seeds of the Evening Primrose’s flowers is known for high levels of linolenic and gamma linoleic fatty acids.

Deeply restorative and rich in antioxidants, this oil protects the skin from age-related issues and helps maintains its elasticity. 

Its soothing qualities help it calm irritation prone skin and protect it from external factors (sun, wind, cold, pollution) by restoring the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

Evening primrose is non-comedogenic but susceptible to oxidation.

It is best to keep it cool in small amber glass containers.
