Going to a show with your dog? Take an Isle Of Dogs brand with you! Its series for show dogs containing evening primrose oil, which is extracted from the seeds of evening primrose, comes from North America. The Primrose accidentally came to the UK from there, when a boat ferrying tobacco accidentaly imported the seeds of evening primrose in the dirt and than germinated. The plant has officially arrived in Europe in 1614 during the reign of King James I, and soon its treatment effects became known as "royal panacea."

Evening primrose oil has been examined in 1919 in Germany, when it has showed the presence of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and was monitored for its effects on the formation of cells and reduction of cholesterol. Today, the beneficial effects of evening primrose oil on the health of the skin and generally known. Pure, cold pressed oil is extracted from the evening primrose (Oenothera biennis). It takes two years before the plant produces 5,000 tiny reddish-brown seeds from which one can obtain 500 mg of oil.
