Ribes Nigrum (Cold Pressed, Refined) Black Currant Seed Oil is extracted
from the seed of the plant Ribes Nigrum. It is known to be rich in the
Omega 6 essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid C18:3n-6) and is
also a good source of ALA (α-linolenic acid C18:3n-3), an Omega 3
essential fatty acid. The GLA content in Black Currant Oil typically
falls in the range of 13%-17%. After the Black Currant Oil is refined,
the result is a clear honey colored oil with a bland odor and taste.
Uses vary from nutritional supplement to cosmetic applications.
