Aubrey Organics, Evening Primrose Oil, 1 fl oz (30 ml)18 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jan 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Our organic Evening Primrose Oil is high in essential fatty acids like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and is very beneficial to the skin. This nutrient-dense oil is soothing and hydrating to dry, flaking areas of the skin and scalp.
Shake well before using. Prior to applying directly on the skin or scalp: dilute evening primrose oil with equal parts water, then apply water/oil mixture to affected areas. A small amount of evening primrose oil added to any of our hand and body lotions increases their soothing effect on the skin.
Oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil.*

iHerb Customer Reviews
Love this oil. Rich in linoleic, alpha-linoleic, beta-linoleic, gamma-linoleic, stearic, aspartic, palmitic, ellagic, p-coumaric polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids (arginine, cysteine, phenylalanine, glutamine, glycine, histamine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, proline, threonine, tyrosine, valine), vitamin C, pota ssium, magnesium, manganese, ammonia, copper, boron, iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, evening primrose oil does wonders for the skin and is suitable for all skin and hair types. Its properties are superb: it deeply moisturizes, nourishes, softens, soothes, revitalizes, regenerates, heals the skin, encouraging cell renewal, reducing redness and inflammation, calming itching, improving its elasticity and complexion, evening out the skin tone, preventing dryness and dehydration and protecting against premature aging. Not only is it great for dry skin, it's also beneficial to oily, combination and acne-prone skin. Due to its ability to to mimic the skin's sebum, it acts as a signal to the pores to stop producing any more sebum. It has the same regulating and balancing effect on oily scalp and hair, helping break down oils, clean hair follicles and remove dirt. Evening primrose oil is also an effective and natural treatment for acne, blemishes, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sunburn, dry, flaky and itchy scalp, as well as many other skin and hair conditions, and known for preventing and reducing scars, stretch marks and razor bumps, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, restoring luster to dull and lifeless hair, strengthening weak and brittle nails and even alleviating muscle pain. I've been diluting it with water, as recommended, and using it on my face and hands, and I've noticed that the condition of my skin has improved: my complexion has improved, my skin tone has even out, there's no redness or irritation, my acne has cleared up, my scalp is healthier and no longer dry, itchy and flaky. Glad I discovered this amazing and versatile oil.
