Hemp Seed Oil: It seems to be making its way into more and more products these days, and if you’re not entirely sure why everyone keeps talking about it, then this post is for you. First things first, our Organic Hemp Seed Oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of Hemp plants and contains ZERO THC or CBD, thus won’t cause any psychoactive effects if ingested. In fact, we think once you’ve heard about all the amazing things Hemp Seed Oil can do for your skin, you’ll be far more interested in applying it topically – trust us.
1. It’s High in Essential Fatty Acids
Hemp Seed oil has particularly high levels of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, and closely mimics our skin’s own natural fats. What does this mean? It means that Hemp Seed Oil is particularly great at moisturizing dry skin because it closely resembles the oils our skin naturally produces, allowing it to absorb seamlessly into the skin instead of sitting on top. Hemp Seed Oil forms a protective barrier on the skin that keeps moisture in, and bacteria out, making it an ideal day or night time moisturizer.
2. It has Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Hemp Seed Oil contains an Omega 6 fatty acid called Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), a known anti-inflammatory. While known for calming the skin, GLA also promotes skin cell renewal and skin-healing. In other words, if you get more than your fair share of blemishes and are prone to scarring or discoloration, you’re going to love our Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp Seed Oil has even been reported to quell the itchiness and irritation associated with common skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis.
3. It Regulates Oil Production
A must for those who are oily or acne-prone, Hemp Seed Oil’s fatty acid profile helps balance skin and reduce oil production – making it a popular ingredient in DIY serums for oilier skin types. Hemp Seed Oil is also non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores and cause build-up that can lead to blemishes.
4. It’s High in Antioxidants
Hemp Seed Oil’s antioxidant content makes it a powerful ingredient to prevent, treat, and minimize the signs of aging. Known for boosting skin’s elasticity and its ability to retain moisture, Hemp Seed Oil helps restore a youthful bounce to the skin while ensuring it stays hydrated for longer – a must when preventing fine lines and wrinkles.
