There is a good deal of evidence that certain skin diseases are directly associated with Vitamin B6 deficiency. Many researchers have described the dermatological symptoms caused by a deficiency of Vitamin B6, particularly in relation to the body’s use or metabolism of essential fatty acids. People suffering from toxic and allergic skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema often show a deficiency of Vitamin B6.
Given the role of Vitamin B6 in the metabolism of essential fatty acids in the body it appears that the combined use of Vitamin B6 and essential fatty acids such as in Rosehip Oil and Evening Primrose Oil have a good synergistic effect on various skin complaints. Its use level is from 1% to 2%, added to the water portion of creams, sprays, etc.
