Product Code: BORG-PX

Borage Extract (Borago officinalis) also known as aStarflower, is an annual herb originating in Syria,but naturalized throughout the Mediterranean region, as well as Asia Minor, Europe, North Africa, and South America. This plant was thought to be native of Assyria, but is probably of North African origin, where there are other Borago species.

Borage is widely used in the manufacture of superior quality skin care and cosmetic products.

Borage oil is extracted and is an expensive ingredient to use, yet its effectiveness more than compensates for its price.

It is very soothing and softening to the skin.

The value of Borage is that it is the richest known source (24%) of an essential fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

Skincare is food for the skin and has two goals: Fresh and Natural.
A natural product should be fresh and a fresh product should be natural.

The normal anticipated shelf life of a natural product is about 1 year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer.
The actual shelf life of the product may be longer or shorter depending on how the product is altered, changed, stored, packaged and handled before the sale to the final consumer. If ingredients are added to our bases and stock products, consideration should be given to the fact that this may shorten or change the shelf life and stability of the product.

In general, it is up to the company that is selling the product to the final consumer to determine the anticipated shelf life of the product.

Currently, the FDA does not generally require expiration dates on cosmetics or skincare products.
Consider being conservative about expiration time frames and encouraging the consumer to use up the product while it is fresh (4-8 months) or discard it after the time frame has passed.

It is the responsibility of the final retailer to conduct appropriate research and development on the use and safety of each item they offer for sale before retailing this item to the final consumer.
