Hemp seed oil comes from the seed of the Hemp Plant it 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 in Hempseed Oil is why products made with this oil can offer relief of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.
With regular use, skin care products made with hemp seed oil can leave the skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized, helping to slow down the aging effect.
The growing of Hemp does not require the use of any pesticides and every part of the plant is used when harvested. The production of Hemp has a very low impact on the environment.
