Genestra Black currant oil is a natural source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Linoleic Acid (LA) accounts for approximately 12% of fatty acids in the skin, and helps maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier.
EFAs help maintain moisture in the eyes and skin, and omega-6 supplementation may play a role in mediating collagen production in the skin.
In a recent study of 40 healthy adults, supplementation with 2 g of blackcurrant seed oil for three months supported skin health and moisture levels in forearm and cheek skin.
Provides 860 mg of LA and 340 mg of GLA per daily dose.
Includes 260 mg of ALA per daily dose.
