Echium Oil

  • Product Code: FO 263
  • Availability: In Stock
  • Price Starting from: £0.00

Echium oil is a very well tolerated oil which contains high levels of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA), a specific Omega-3 fatty acid, making it valuable in cosmetic and skin care applications. Stearidonic acid reduces skin inflammation by suppressing the release of Arachidonic acid, amongst other cell activities. Echium contains more than 12% of stearidonic acid, compared to 2% found in the only other commercial source, Blackcurrant seed oil. In addition to this benefit, Echium is an unusual oil in that it contains a unique ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.
