Is Hemp Good For Your Skin?
By now, most of us have learned the importance of skin care. In fact, the majority of us are in search of the perfect skincare products to match our unique skin needs. Common criteria include sensitivity to certain ingredients, skin-type, and lifestyle. Our list also includes products that are “effective” and “gentle” which means we can’t overlook harsh or harmful chemicals. It seems like most of us would rather have all-natural ingredients that work, than petroleum, parabens and other man-made additives that come with possible side effects.
Fortunately, some of the most effective skin care products include all-natural oils like coconut, sunflower, and argan or Moroccan oil. Why? Well, oil does wonders for your skin by clearing out imperfections, hydrating, and creating a brighter complexion among other things. Now, we’re exploring the next IT oil, made from hemp.
What is Hemp Oil?
Not to be confused with cannabidiol oil, hemp oil is made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. Just as a quick background, hemp has historically been used for thousands of years to make paper and clothes. Today, it has a variety of applications, including food, medicine, building materials, and cosmetics.
Over the last decade, the hemp industry has slowly accelerated and now there’s a booming demand for hemp due to its new legal status and numerous uses. More recently, it has proven to be a powerful, all-natural addition in many skin care products.
Then there’s hemp seed oil. The seeds of the hemp plant are cold-pressed to make this golden-green oil. Hemp seed oil is used in its pure, unrefined form to make skin care products too.
