Borage oil is a valuable plant-based oil derived from the seeds of the borage plant (Borago officinalis). Renowned for its rich gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content, it is considered one of the highest natural sources of this omega-6 fatty acid. GLA is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and potential health benefits, particularly in supporting skin health and managing conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The oil also contains essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (omega-6) and oleic acid (omega-9), contributing to its nutritional profile. It is commonly used as a dietary supplement in capsules or liquid form to support skin health, hormonal balance, and overall well-being. Its potential therapeutic applications and versatility in various industries, including cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, have contributed to its popularity and demand.

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing awareness of the product's health benefits, particularly its rich gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content. In line with this, the rising demand for natural and plant-based health supplements is significantly contributing to the market. Furthermore, the growing interest in skin health and beauty products with anti-inflammatory properties is positively influencing the market. Apart from this, the widespread product applications in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries are offering numerous opportunities for the market.

The oil is now commonly found in a wide range of products, including moisturizers, serums, facial oils, and creams. Its versatility also extends to hair care products, contributing to hair health and shine. Moreover, the rising consumer awareness of the potentially harmful effects of synthetic chemicals has shifted preferences toward clean and natural beauty products. As the cosmetics and personal care industry expands, oil's position as a sought-after natural ingredient is expected to strengthen further.
