What it is
Echium plntangineum seed oil is derived from echium plantagineum, the plant commonly known as purple viper’s-bugloss or Paterson’s curse.
What it does
Echium plantagineum seed oil is rich in fatty acids (14% linoleic acid, 10% γ-linolenic acid, 33% α-linolenic acid and 14% stearidonic acid) that make it a wonderful moisturizer. It helps repair the skin’s protective barrier, which improves hydration and reduces roughness.
It may even help boost the production of collagen.
Echium plantagineum seed oil is generally considered to be safe.
