WHY natural skincare matters?
What exactly IS Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp seed oil comes from cold pressing (minimally processing) the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant. That may make you think of marijuana but while they come from the same plant family they’re more like cousins and siblings. Hemp seed oil is not psychoactive, contains insignificant amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) below 0.35 percent and is mostly made up of polyunsaturated fatty acids (good fats) including omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 and GLA (gamma-linoleic acid).

How does hemp oil benefit your skin?
Hemp seed oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil.
Along with a healthy quotient of essential fatty acids, hemp seed oil contains the antioxidant power of vitamins A and E. Antioxidants are a mainstay in skincare offerings as they help protect against environmental and lifestyle stressors and have been shown to have anti-ageing properties.
Hemp seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as omega 3, 6, 9, including GLA. These essential fats help support the skin cells and provide nutrients to encourage cellular rejuvenation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When it comes to moisture, hemp seed oil is a multi-tasker. First off, it’s a humectant which means it draws moisture to the skin. In addition, the omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, plus vitamin E help form a skin barrier simultaneously softening and strengthening the skin and locking moisture in.

Hemp seed is a superfood loaded with vitamins. The best way to get strong nails is from the nutrients found in whole food. Vitamins and minerals found in hemp seed can help eliminate deficiencies that cause brittle nails. Alternatively, massage a small amount of hemp seed oil directly onto your nails and cuticles to nourish, hydrate, repair and strengthen, and the anti-fungal properties are a bonus!
NB: Hemp seed oil is best consumed raw. (Cooking denatures its good fats and health giving properties)
