The seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant have a high content of oil, they consist of it to an extent of about 30%. And it’s exactly this what makes it such an interesting ingredient for natural skin care products. Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil is extracted by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Our hemp seed oil is organic, unrefined and of European origins. It’s a clear green oil with a slightly nutty flavor.
Hempseed oil is made from the hemp seed itself and doesn’t contain any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive component of cannabis. THC is a substance only found in the blossoms and leaves of the cannabis plant, however not in the seeds. So we are safe to say that our products will not get you high or have such an effect on your skin under any circumstances.
It’s known that hemp seed oil has many benefits for health and well-being. This includes its desirable effects on skin health and appearance, amongst others thanks to the high amounts of antioxidants (Vitamin B) and moisturizing qualities. We use cannabis sativa seed oil to all our formulas to create the best skin care products for men and women.
A real bonus for everyone is that hemp seed oil nourishes, moisturizes and soothes the skin. A high content of hemp seed oil in cosmetics has a verifiably positive effect on the degree of skin hydration.
Hemp oil contains substantial amounts of linoleic and linolenic acids, which are known for improving the structure of the skin and are especially beneficial for dry and rough skin, providing a hefty dose of hydration.
Hemp seed oil contains omega-6 fatty acids, which have strong anti-inflammatory properties. At the same time, those omega-6 fatty acids encourage skin growth and new cell generation – making cannabis seed oil the ideal partner of a fresh skin appearance!
Cannabis seed oil is also known for its richness and a high arachidonic acid content. But what does that mean? Basically, those fatty acids is used in cosmetics to treat eczema and skin irritations – and ultimately lead to optimal skin protection.
To conclude, hemp seed oil can help you to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, for example acne or even more severe conditions like psoriasis.
Moderates oil production
Hemp seed oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. Its comedogenic rating is zero, meaning there is no chance that hemp seed oil causes you to break out! Therefore it is safe to use daily, also with acne-prone skin. The oil can even help to balance out oily skin and hydrate it, keeping your face silky and smooth.
Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can result in acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores, reducing acne that’s caused by excess oil production.
Reduces symptoms of many skin conditions
Hemp seed oil has a balanced ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids (3:1). This is why the oil should be included when treating various skin conditions. It can, for example, reduce the symptoms of acne, neurodermatosis, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema. So use hemp seed oil to treat dry patches, redness and blotchy skin.
Skin preserving properties
Not only does hemp seed oil moisturize, soothe and treat the skin. It can also help to attenuate the development of signs of skin aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Hempseed oil is safe for most people to use and usually doesn’t contain any THC or psychoactive properties. It is a great addition to make good skin care products.
Applying the oil topically on the skin might cause mild irritation in rare cases. This can happen with any ingredient used in any kind of cosmetics. To verify that you are not allergic against hemp oil, we recommend you to apply a small quantity of the product to the patch of skin on your arm first, just to be sure.
