Mount Purious Starflower Oil Body Moisturiser



You may have noticed that in recent months I have turned my focus to vegan products. I mentioned Mount Purious Raw Skincare in a blog post (click here) and was approached to review the Starflower Oil Body Moisturiser*.

The oil is extracted from the seed of the Starflower plant (Borago Officinalis). Starflower oil is rich in the fatty acid GLA (Gammalinoleic Acid) and has twice the level of Evening Primrose. You may already be familiar with its medicinal properties because supplements are often recommended for Women’s Health but it can also be used for skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis. 

Using the Starflower oil from top to toe has not necessarily “cured” me of my eczema/dermatitis but what it has done is provided a new level of comfort. I have found it to be hugely beneficial at calming the dreaded itch, of course that may be down to my skin being overly dry but my skin appears to absorb quickly and the effects last longer than other oils I have tried.

As Mount Purious Skincare is certified organic and free from additives you are buying oil in its purest form. I do not have to worry about perfumes or filler ingredients and where my skin is concerned this is a huge bonus to me. So far, this product has been the only one which gives me temporary relief from the irritation of Seborrheic dermatitis which is recurrent around my eyes and mouth. I am hopeful that with continued use I might be able to win the battle which has been ongoing for over two years.

As you can tell it’s very hard for me to be critical of this product. You all know I love skincare which is simple and Mount Purious ticks the boxes. The range extends beyond Starflower oil to include Argan, Camellia, Evening Primrose, Hemp, Jojoba, Rosehip, Tamanu and Rosewater toner. I highly recommend you have a browse of the website and let me know if you decided to buy a product.

  2. I will have to recommend this to my friend, her daughter is really suffering from dermatitis and she's using all the rubbish creams from the doctors and they are not working. This sounds like a lovely product. x

    1. Worth a try, it could always be used in correlation to other products and I've been using face and body.

  3. At first I read it wrong, and thought it said "Mount Furious". So I was like "hmm that's a strange name for a natural company" lol. Judging by your review it looks like a great product, and I'm glad to hear it did provide more relief for you. Thank you for the introduction! x

  6. Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for reviewing this - I've been looking to purchase a new green moisturiser for a while now and this really does tick all the boxes. Also I hope it helps you with your skin - I suffer from some light redness so hopefully this will soothe it too.
