We use organic Hemp Seed Oil in several of our products because of its amazing skincare benefits. Hemp seeds are the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. The oil is harvested by cold pressing the seeds. It’s so beneficial for skin health thanks to its nourishing vitamins and moisturizing qualities.
Here are some of the reasons why we love this amazing ingredient so much!
Regulates oil production
Hemp Oil is wonderful for most skin types as it moisturises without clogging pores. It can balance out oily skin and helps to regulate the skin's oil production. Hemp oil also prevents dry skin without clogging, reducing acne that is caused by excess oil.
Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturise without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Soothes inflammation and moisturizes skin
Hemp Oil contains omega-6 fatty acids which act as powerful anti-inflammatories whilst also encouraging new cell generation and skin growth. This helps to calm irritation and inflammation, including acne and conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturised.
Has anti-aging properties
Hemp Oil also has anti-aging properties. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also prevent signs of aging from developing by improving moisture and elasticity to the skin. Unlike other oils that simply coat the skin, hemp seed oil's penetrative properties dry naturally while locking in moisture and improving skin's quality.
You can find Hemp Seed Oil in our Aromatherapy Body Oils, our Himalayan Salt Scrubs and our Hand & Body Balms.
