Hemp Seed Oil
INCI: Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil
Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fiber. They are a good source of tocopherols, or Vitamin E antioxidants. They're packed with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, plus microelements like strontium, thorium, arsenic and chromium.
High in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and omega 3, hemp oil can be used to counteract aging skin. Several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process and fight psoriasis.
The fats, or lipids, in hemp oil are similar to those found in the skin. This makes it an effective moisturiser and protectant for skin. It increases the elasticity of the skin and brings new life to dry, tired or dehydrated skin.
