Organic evening primrose – Natural protection for “sensitive ones”
This bright yellow flower is a true phenomenon of nature: Unlike other flowers, its blooms open only at night for a vibrant display of colour in the dark. Extracts from the evening primrose plant were already used by Native Americans as a natural remedy. This special medicinal plant was only brought to us in Europe around 350 years ago. Finally, the evening primrose has also found its way into the intensive care products of lavera Neutral – this important main ingredient gently helps the skin to regenerate.
The valuable organic evening primrose oil used in some lavera Naturkosmetik products for particularly sensitive skin is obtained by pressing the seeds. Its main components are linoleic acid, oleic acid and linolenic acid, which have healing properties.
Evening primrose oil contains a high amount of gamma linolenic acid and can improve the skin texture of people with allergic skin diseases and reduce itchiness. This valuable oil can renew the damaged skin barrier and normalise a lack of water.
The valuable evening primrose oil can help in cases of eczema.
This makes it highly suitable for use in skin protection creams.
