What is Borage?
BORAGE (borago officinalis), commonly called "starflower", is a well known herb which can be found in almost all temperate regions of the world.
The plant grows 18" to 36" high and spreads 12" to 20" wide. The leaves can become straggly and messy, but its abundant bright blue, star-shaped flowers, which bloom most of the summer, make the plant one of the prettiest and most colorful herbs. It can frequently be found bordering herb and vegetable gardens and it is reported that fields of cultivated borage plants in North America create a vivid green and purple landscape.
Borage is commercially grown for the very valuable oil found in its seeds. The great value of this oil is that it produces the highest yield (up to 24%) of the omega-6 fatty acid, GLA. Among other benefits, GLA is essential for the formation and maintenance of healthy skin cell membranes.
SHIKAI Borage Therapy delivers omega-6 benefits directly to the cells for healthier, moister skin.
What is Yuzu?
YUZU - (Yoo'zoo'), or Japanese Citrus, grows throughout Japan. It looks much like a cross between grapefruit, an orange and a lime and can be either yellow or green.
Its flavor is similar to our grapefruit but has definite overtones of Mandarin orange. It is very fresh and tangy-tasting and is considered one of the most fragrant of Japanese fruits.
Because of its pleasing scent, oils are extracted from its peel and used both in cooking -- yuzu vinegar is commonly available -- and as a perfume in cosmetics.
Our Hand & Body Lotion and Shower Gel scented with yuzu oil are zesty yet delicate. This fragrance has become one of our most popular and a personal favorite of several of us at SHIKAI.
