Perilla seed oil has very high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids including Omega 3 and Omega 6, both are termed 'essential' fatty acids as they cannot be produced by the body. Omega 3 and Omega 6 offer anti-inflammatory and nourishing properties to the skin and so may be useful for dry or aging skin types or for those prone to irritated and inflamed skin problems.
