Benefits

Rich in vitamins A, E and omega-3 , flaxseed acts effectively against signs of ageing and favours cell renewal.
Because of its high lignan content, its oil is interesting for oily skins because it helps to reduce the production of sebum.

It is the ideal ingredient for beautiful skin as well as hair.
