Our cleansers all contain a little borage oil. Borage oil is derived from an herb native to the Middle East. The oil is extracted from the seeds. It is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) has been shown to be one of the most effective agents for the maintenance of healthy skin. Borage oil has skin regenerating properties, and therefore helps damaged skin heal. Amazing ingredient! Remember 25% off cleansers with code NEWCLEAN. Try and enjoy!
