Linseed oil

Linum usitatissimum 

The blue-flowering flax or linseed plant yields an amber coloured oil that is abundant in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, all of which help to nourish and moisturise your skin, keeping it hydrated. Linseed oil is naturally rich in vitamin E, a highly functional vitamin known to reduce the appearance of unwanted skin discolorations or blemishes. Also known as flaxseed oil, linseed oil is a much-loved ingredient in cosmetics, thanks to its soothing, softening and calming properties.
