The hemp seed is pressed to release this wonderful oil rich in omega 3 and omega 6 EFA (essential fatty acids) and GLA (gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA is an essential fatty acid that resembles sebum, a natural lubricant found in the skin. These EFA’s are needed to keep moisture in the body and are what makes hemp oil moisturizing to the skin.
Skin care products containing Hemp seed oil sooth and restore dry and damaged skin relieving discomfort and increasing moisture retention. The GLA (gamma linolenic acid) in Hempseed Oil is why products made with this oil can offer relief of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.
