Ribes nigrum

Ribes nigrum


The seed of the Black Currant fruit is one of the world's richest natural sources of Gamma-Linolenic Acid. Other beneficial fatty acids, such as Alpha Linoleic Acid and Stearidonic Acid, are also found in abundance.

Black Currants are rich in proanthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that give the berries their color.

A cold-pressed oil of black currant seeds is used in skin care for its highly nourishing, anti-inflammatory properties. It is wonderfully restorative on dry, de-vitalized, damaged or aging skin.

Skin Care Benefits:
Softening, Nourishing, Replenishing, Anti-Inflammatory
