What is Echium plantagineum seed oil (Purple viper's bugloss)?

Echium plantagineum or commonly known as Paterson's curse/ purple viper's bugloss, native to southern Europe, southwestern Asia, And northern Africa. It is an invasive weed and poisonous for cattle to graze. The seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant, are rich in fatty acids such as linoleic acid, linolenic acid, stearidonic acid, etc. It comes as a colorless to a pale-yellow clear liquid.

Use & Benefits:

The fixed oil or the fatty acids present in the seed oil improves the appearance of skin by providing moisturization to the skin. Omega -3 fatty acids like linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and stearidonic acid also belong to the skin’s natural fat content. Now, as we age, our natural or inherent stores of these fatty acids get depleted, resulting in dull skin or age-related spots on the skin and many other skin problems start showing up. So, when the skin is replenished with those fatty acids, it not only gets nourished but also its defense power or resistance power increases, which can fight the damaging external factors with ease. Its conditions skin and makes skin smooth and soft. It is used in anti-aging skin care, daily facial care, moisturizers, and skin care.
