Omega’s are so essential to the health of every cell in our body, yet there is a
lack of understanding about what we really need and what really works.
Sources of Omega’s
Fish Oils Kiwi Seed Oil
Soybean Oil Hemp Seed Oil
Camelina Oil Flax Seed Oil
Borage Oil Evening Primrose Oil
Olive Oil Safflower Oil
Blackcurrent Oil Sunflower Oil
Omega 9 – No longer classed as an Essential fatty Acid, high quantities are
found in the following.
Olive Oil Almond Oil
Canola Oil Palmberry Pulp
Omega 9 is now seen as not being a necessary Essential Fatty Acid in our
diet, it is thought that we now have an over-abundance of Omega 6 and 9 and
are deficient in Omega 3. This is something I see time and time again with clients skins.
Recommendations for Omega 3 internal intake - Preferably from a fish form
3000mg per day – General Skin maintenance
6000mg per day – Skin Condition
9000mg per day – Menopause
Look for a good quality Omega 3 Oil - the EPA and DHA should equal as close to 1000mg as possible, so cheaper brands will have as little as 250mg.
Topical Application – What to look for?
Look for products containing the following ingredients -
Omega 3 – Kiwi Seed Oil, contains the highest amount of Omega 3 from a plant source.
Squalene – the original form of this is from shark oil, however new plant
extracts are starting to come through in skin care formulations. The best
source being from Rice Bran.
Phospholipids – Lecithin, extracted from Soybean
Biomimetic Epidermal Lipids – Alpha Lipoic Acid and Beta Carotene are great
