Did You Know... All About Hemp Seed Oil
What's so special about hemp seed oil and why you might want to check it out?
Hemp seed oil has become a popular skincare ingredient in the last few years. Some of our newer products use it but what exactly is so special about it? But first, what is it?
Hemp seed oil is obtained from pressing the seeds of the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa L.). Unrefined hemp seed oil is a dark greenish color with a mildly nutty aroma. It can also be used in cooking. Hemp oil does not contain cannabidiol (CBD) and contains trace to no amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Learn more about this at VeryWell Health.
Why we chose it:
This is the biggest and most well-verified benefit that hemp seed oil can deliver. Hemp oil is emollient which means it has the quality of softening or soothing the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Some of the components of hemp seed oil contain fatty acids that are moisturizing and help calm irritated skin.
It's Deep Cleaning
There are also studies that suggest hemp oil can deeply cleanse the skin, ridding it of extra oils. It may even help your skin look more radiant.
