Move over, hyaluronic acid. Hemp skincare is the new ‘it’ product. It has developed a cult following over the last few years and deservedly so; it is an incredibly nourishing ingredient for all skin types, provides powerful antioxidants and omega fatty acids to the skin, and has numerous health benefits linked to it's rich mixture of beneficial plant chemicals.
So, how does hemp benefit the skin exactly?
1. Provides long-lasting moisture
Hemp Seed Oil is rich in fatty acids which moisturise your skin, and because it is non-comedogenic, it does this without clogging pores. This makes it an excellent moisturiser for all skin types - dry, oily or normal.
2. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Hemp Seed extract and oil contains oleic and linoleic acids which can improve the appearance of ageing skin. The acids contain moisturising properties which soften the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, allowing your skin to glow.
3. Helps with skin inflammation
A 2014 study found that hemp seed oil may reduce types of inflammation such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and lichen planus, due to its anti-inflammatory properties omega 3 and omega 6, alongside its numerous antioxidants.
4. It’s an all-rounder powerhouse
Hemp seed and our Hemp Stem cells are packed with skin-friendly vitamins such as Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin B1 and B2, and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. These allow your skin to maintain a healthy barrier function, and also plump the look of your skin.
