Hemp seed oil has been popping up in more and more skin care products recently and for good reason. The omega fatty acids in hemp seed oil help lower inflammation in the skin while helping it to retain moisture without clogging pores.
Hemp seed oil is not CBD oil. The main difference being that hemp seed oil is harvested by cold pressing hemp seeds which do not contain THC, the psychoactive component in CBD oil. The oil extracted from flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant is what is known as CBD oil.
Hemp seed oil moisturizes skin without clogging pores and can help to balance oily skin by hydrating it and regulating oil production.
It contains gamma-linoleic acic, an anit-infalammatory that can calm irritation.
The linoleic and oleic acids in hemp oil play a role in skin health and anti-aging.
This makes hemp seed oil an invaluable ingredient for our soaps and skin care products as it has benefits for all skin types. It also adds to the wonderful creamy lather of our soap bars to leave skin feeling great.
