Echium vulgare

Essential fatty acids are vital for a healthy skin. A deficiency leads to impairment of the skin’s barrier function, making it more susceptible to irritants such as soaps and environmental chemicals. Arctic Echium has the highest known concentration (13%) of the Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids: stearidonic acid(SDA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which have excellent anti-inflammatory qualities. Arctic Echium is also an excellent remedy against premature ageing of skin.
