Flax Seed Oil

Posted on


INCI name: Linum usitatissimum seed oil




Also known as linseed oil, flax seed oil is produced mainly in Canada, China and the US, although it is native to India where a significant amount is still cultivated.


Flax seed oil is high in linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid and can be added to skin care products to aid acne, eczema, mature skin, psoriasis, sunburn and rosacea. It is anti-inflammatory, healing and softening on the skin and helps reduce redness associated with skin irritations.


Flax seed oil can be added to skin care creams, lotions and balms. It is a delicate oil - adding vitamin E and storing it in the refrigerator can extend its shelf life.
