The valuable oil of the black currant plant comes from the seeds. Blackcurrant seed oil is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, an important ingredient for maintaining the elasticity of the skin and a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin.

Prostaglandin offers anti-inflammatory properties and is believed to also have blood thinning and blood vessel dilation properties. It has also been reported that black currant oil supplementation provides significant benefits to people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Blackcurrant oil can be an effective addition to formulations for dry, devitalized, damaged and aging skin. It is also excellent in products for sensitive skin, eczema or psoriasis. Blackcurrant oil can be used in any proportion within skin care, hair care, baby care and sun care products.
