Yes, Hemp Seed Oil is packed with health benefits for your skin and no, don’t worry, the psychedelic side effects are not one of the benefits. The Hemp Seed Oil you will find in our products does not contain any of the THC that causes those effects.
Hemp seed oil is becoming more and more well known for its health benefits, especially so now that here in Australia we have seen hemp recently (November 2017) legalised for human consumption. A plant based option packed with protein, omega 6, omega 3 and antioxidants it’s easy to understand why consuming and applying topically will positively impact our health. We have included Hemp Seed Oil in our formulas right from the beginning, and here are just some of the reasons we love Hemp!
Why have we included this ingredient in our hydrating lotion and exfoliants mask? These products are best suited to oily, blemish prone and combination skin. The most common cause of these issues being over production natural oils in the skin causing greasy, blemish prone skin caused by blocked pores. The key to solving these issues? Promoting a balanced natural oil production and we believe Hemp Seed Oil is the right ingredient for the job. Hemp Seed Oil has a wonderful genetic makeup, what makes it so special? Well, the fact that it is so similar to our natural oils. Having a non-comedogenic rating of 0, meaning it is almost identical our own natural sebum oil.
Having a genetic makeup so closely composed to that of our natural sebum oil, this allows it to mimic the roles of our natural oils, giving it the ability to penetrate deep into the skin whilst protecting and replenishing. In other words it tricks our skin into a controlled oil production and helps to achieve the balanced oil production needed for a healthy complexion.
Being classed as a non-comedogenic ingredient with a rating of zero not only means balanced hydration is achieved it also means the nutritional values of hemp seed oil are extremely easily absorbed. Hemp Seed Oil is renowned for being the most balanced fatty acid plant based ingredient found in nature, being perfectly balanced 3:1 in Hemp Seed Oil. This combinations of Omega fatty acids truthfully is an extraordinary ingredient for our skin. By adding Hemp Seed Oil in your skincare routine it will help to achieve the following:
Smooth skin’s surface,
