Meet The Richest, Natural, Botanical Source of GLA //
A great deal of research, trails and consideration go into each plant based ingredient we choose to incorporate into our precious formulations. Each has a purpose, must stand alone but also offer synergistic capabilities, in brief maximum skin healing benefits. Here we take a close look at Borage Seed Oil Borago Officinalis – also known as Starflower Oil.
The central principle of homoeopathy is ‘like cures like’. This principle dates back to the Greek physician Hippocrates who lived in the 5th century BC. This law states that any substance which is capable of producing symptoms in a healthy person will remove similar symptoms occurring as an expression of disease.
About 30% of our skin’s sebum (this is the natural substance that coats our skin) is a natural wax ester. It plays a protective role – kill germs, viruses and creates a protective barrier for locking in moisture. This protective wax ester in our skin diminishes as we age.
The data collected by way of the combined GC-MS test analyses the chemical constituents in the essential oils and give the relative percentage of them. This information can be used to compare the specific constituents and their percentages to those of a known sample that possesses reliable purity and is of the optimal quality for the specific botanical (being tested).
