Evening Primrose Oil, 10% GLA
CAS No.  90028-66-3


Evening Primrose Oil is harvested from the seed of the Evening Primrose, a wildflower native to Eastern and Central North America and found in parts of Asia and Europe. It is now cultivated in more than 30 countries, primarily to produce the dietary supplement EPO, with China producing more than 90% of the annual supply.  Evening Primrose seeds have very high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid also known as "omega-6".  The oil can contain up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid and 70% linolenic acid, which the body turns into GLA. 

Evening Primrose oil should be kept in the refrigerator to extend its shelf life.  When using it in products, add an antioxidant like Rosemary Oleoresin Extract to protect the oil and prolong your product's shelf life as well.

Our Customers Say...
I recently placed an order and part of my order went to the wrong place. I received several personal phone calls along the way from Jen, the mistake was explained, another shipment was sent out right away, and received it within a matter of days. I love the shipping cost adjustments that are normally made with my orders. I love the quality of the products, the packaging, and the new website. Thank you, Jen.

I order from the UK and can't say what a pleasure it is to buy from you. It's wonderful to have such a good choice of products to choose from too. :-) My parcel always arrives properly processed and well packed. Although I sometimes wait a while for it due to customs - it's always well worth the wait!
Thank you for such an excellent service!
