Hemp is gaining ground as one of today’s most beneficial skincare ingredients, but it’s actually one of the world’s oldest cultivated crops and is used in everything from food to fiber and even health benefits. From the multitude of modern-day hemp oil uses to its plethora of skincare benefits, we’re sharing why this natural wonder belongs in your daily routine.
What is Hemp Oil?
Hemp oil (also known as Cannabis sativa) is a pure plant oil sourced from cold-pressed hemp seeds. Especially rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, this natural oil is quickly absorbed and helps to nourish and hydrate the skin.
What is Hemp Oil Used For?
Hemp oil is known for having numerous health benefits, but its skincare uses are particularly impressive. We suggest using hemp oil for skin that’s in need of extra moisture or applying it to irritated skin that needs some TLC. Adding hemp oil to your daily skincare routine is a wonderful way to treat yourself to its beautifying benefits.
4 Incredible Hemp Oil Benefits You Need to Know
1. Hemp oil helps moderate skin’s natural oil production.
One of the most appealing aspects of hemp oil is its unique ability to moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. It also helps regulate your skin’s natural oil production, which is particularly helpful for balancing irritated, oil-prone skin.
Our soothing Cannabis Sativa & White Ginger Facial Cleansing Pads are formulated with organic Cannabis sativa oil, pure Australian Eco-Harvest® tea tree oil, and white ginger to help calm, clarify and tone your skin — anytime, anywhere. Apply them after your first cleanse or use them on the go for a calming, clarifying boost whenever you need it.
2. Hemp oil helps soothe irritated skin.
Hemp oil contains a healthy dose of omegas, including an omega-6 fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) with soothing properties that help to calm skin irritations.
3. Hemp oil moisturizes skin.
Hemp oil’s high concentration of omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids help to repair your skin’s natural moisture barrier while locking in hydration. Even better, hemp oil is a humectant, which means it not only seals in moisture but attracts it to the skin, as well.
4. Hemp oil can help strengthen your nails.
In addition to the benefits of hemp oil for skin mentioned above, hemp oil also contains amino acids that help to soften cuticles. Just massage a few drops of hemp oil on and around your nail beds for an easy and effective DIY manicure.
