Why we use it

The perilla plant is native to southeast Asia, and the oil from its seeds is used both in cooking and skincare. The seed oil contains over 50% alpha-linolenic acid, which is an omega-3 fatty acid that your body needs but can’t produce itself. Alpha-linolenic acid has strong anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
