Not only is Primrose oil super moisturizing, but it is also a potent anti-inflammatory — especially when it comes to calming hormonal acne. Loaded with gamma-Linolenic (Omega 6) fatty acids makes Primrose oil super nutritious for moisturizing and soothing the skin, scalp, and hair while enhancing elasticity. It improves radiance and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness to reveal a youthful and uniform complexion.
Primrose oil is a lightweight oil extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose flower (also known as Oenothera biennis). This small, night-blooming flower is native to North and South America and has been used in traditional and folk medicine for centuries, if not longer. Historically, Native Americans used evening primrose to care for bruises and skin irritations. In the 1600s, evening primrose oil made its way to mainland Europe, where it was touted as a cure-all for different issues, including skin concerns.
Key Benefits: Ease eczema, clear up acne, reduce wrinkles
Primrose oil is an A.C.E., which means it’s rich in three key vitamins — A, C, and E — which help with acne prevention and reduction by increasing skin cell turnover. You can use it daily on your face to treat any acne-related issues you may be facing.
Some countries have approved Primrose oil to treat eczema, an inflammatory skin condition. People with sensitive skin often deal with frequent irritation or discomfort from known and unknown sources, but primrose oil might help. Thanks to its rich Vitamin E content, it is a perfect choice for sensitive skin, since the latter is known to reduce skin irritations and strengthen the skin barrier.
Skin Health & Elasticity:
Primrose oil is full of beauty essentials like anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C. These ingredients allow primrose oil to treat signs of aging and pigmentation, hydrate skin and repair damaged skin, and provide a strong protective antioxidant boost — all without the oily feel of a traditional liquid oil. Vitamin A in particular is a wrinkle eraser and skin evener. Vitamin A helps to build collagen, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, thus enhancing skin tone.
A Bright Face:
The astringent properties in primrose oil help tighten your pores and brighten your skin, so adding some to your skincare routine is great if your cheeks need a little brightening up. Start with a small quantity in your daily routine: patting a few drops on cleansed skin at bedtime.
Even Out Your Skin Tone:
If you’ve been struggling to even out your skin tone or have red blotches you’re desperate to fade, this vitamin-packed carrier oil is much easier on sensitive skin than lemon juice, so rub it on clean, damp skin both mornings and evenings. The combination of vitamins in primrose oil work together to help support good skin tone.
Good for Scarring and Stretch Marks:
The ultimate beauty ingredient trio — anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C — make this oil a potential solution for fading any facial scars or unsightly marks. Together, these vitamins help undo and prevent oxidative damage and help the skin re-build collagen. It can help fade skin hyperpigmentation and potentially minimize the appearance of fine lines and even stretch marks. Pregnant ladies can rub some primrose oil on their tummies to reduce the incidence of stretch marks while baby grows.
The essential fatty acids in primrose oil moisturize the hair shaft and scalp. Regular use of primrose oil can encourage healthy growth and resilience of hair. A well-balanced scalp and moisturized hair may pave the way to a healthier mane. This can be especially beneficial in the case of a dry scalp that is prone to itching and barrier damage.
Primrose oil can be applied straight onto the skin or can be used as a carrier oil for other, more potent oils.
Hair: Massage the oil into your scalp and deep into your hair. Let the oil sit on your hair for up to 30 minutes. You could even mix a few drops into your favorite shampoo or conditioner.
Body: You can use it topically in its pure form or add a few drops to your lotion or cream. Ideally, use it with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Face: You can even use Primrose oil in place of your usual moisturizer or add a couple of drops to your moisturizer for added benefits.

Primrose oil when paired with essential oils can boost hair growth. Both peppermint essential oil and rosemary essential oil have been proven to boost hair growth. Always use a diluted essential oil on the scalp and never directly.

Give it a quick stir and apply gently to your scalp. Leave for a minimum of 1 hour before washing off

To use, massage oil onto your hands and nail beds twice a day for a week, then daily for upkeep.
As with anything you apply topically, there’s always the chance you’ll have an allergic reaction to it. It’s best to do a patch test on your arm before using on your face.
If you notice any of these signs, stop using the product and see a doctor if your symptoms worsen:
- Any sort of skin irritation, such as as itching or redness
- In rare, but severe allergic reaction cases, you may experience difficulty breathing, rapid heart rate.
