The GLA in Lorna Vanderhaeghe SKINSMART GLA BORAGE OIL is also known as gamma linolenic acid. It is found in borage oil (20 to 24%) and to a lesser extent evening primrose oil (8 to 10%). GLA is not found in food in high enough quantities to maintain our needs through diet alone. SKINSMART GLA SKIN OIL helps us to get the GLA levels we are not able to obtain through our food. GLA is a component of healthy skin. Skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, cradle cap, acne and dry skin can occur when GLA is low. GLA is vital for keeping skin cells moist and strong improving the barrier function of the skin. When it comes to GLA the only way to get this important fatty acid is to take it in a nutritional supplement like SKINSMART GLA BORAGE OIL.
