    • Moisturizing: EPO helps hydrate and maintain the skin's moisture barrier, making it beneficial for dry and sensitive skin.
    • Anti-inflammatory: Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce redness, irritation, and swelling associated with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
    • Anti-aging: The oil can improve skin elasticity, firmness, and smoothness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Hormonal Balance:
