INCI: Linum Usitatissimum
The oil is a natural source of alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), which is designated as an omega-3 fatty acid, and Linoleic Acid (Omega 6). Jeffrey Benabio, MD, FAAD, skin care expert, claims that the benefits of flax oil applied topically include reducing dull-looking skin and softening the look of fine lines. Benabio also says that the oil, due to its anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, reduces red skin and irritation. Acne, psoriasis, rosacea and eczema can be improved by the use of the oil.
The oil also contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and E.
