Borage oil contains the most GLA of all natural liquid oils, which repairs the skin barrier faster than linoleic acid, as well as decreasing transepidermal water loss; increasing skin hydration; and increasing skin flexibility. There have been studies done which show that borage oil has the ability to reduce cell hyperproliferation and reduce redness by 20%.
This oil also contains Ferulic acid which is a more effective anti-oxidant than Vitamin E. This helps the oil to soothe and moisturize skin; repair light and weather induced skin damage; reduce itching and inflammation; and may reduce skin aging.
The tannins in this oil make it an astringent product and, the ellagic acid helps in reducing the destruction of collagen; increasing the regeneration of skin cells, and thickens the skin.
