Lighthouse Evening Primrose oil contains a number of essential fatty acids with the main therapeutic compounds being linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). These compounds are precursors to the anti-inflammatory prostaglandin E1Linolenic acid and GLA are involved in maintaining the integrity of the skin and exerting an anti-inflammatory action in mild skin disorders. Lower levels of GLA are reported in atopic dermatitis and eczema. A study on Evening Primrose Oil in patients with atopic dermatitis found that these patients tend to have lower levels of GLA compared to non atopic dermatitis. Treatment with Evening Primrose oil increased GLA levels and reduced the severity of skin inflammation, dryness and itchiness.
