Hempseed oil, or hemp oil, is made by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant to produce a green oil with a nutty flavor. It's often further refined to remove impurities and extend the storage life of the oil. Hemp oil differs from CBD isolate, which uses the flowers and leaves of the plant in its production; however both products are completely free of THC, which is the psychoactive component of cannabis.
The rich oil produced has numerous qualities that make it beneficial for all skin types. It’s highly moisturizing, thanks to its small molecular structure it can penetrate the skin rather than just sit on the surface, and since it’s non- comedogenic it won’t clog pores or lead to painful acne breakouts.
Hemp oil also contains high amounts of linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid. These fatty acids play an important role in supporting the skin’s barrier to the elements, and help protect it from environmental stresses, and are considered to be essential nutrients for the skin. Additionally, gamma-linolenic acid works as an anti-inflammatory, soothing dryness and irritation and encouraging skin cell growth for well healthy, radiant skin.
A common misconception from people suffering from oily skin conditions is that adding moisture to their skin will worsen their problems. However, oily skin is often caused by dryness deep below the surface of the skin, which causes the pores to over produce oil. Hemp oils deep penetrating properties helps to balance both oily and dry skin, encouraging clearer, calmer looking skin.
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a naturally occurring chemical found in hemp plants. It’s first extracted from Hemp oil as a distillate, and then it undergoes an intense filtration process to remove all plant materials, chlorophyll, and wax, which results in pure, crystalline CBD.
CBD offers serious antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to skincare products, and can be beneficial in fighting dryness, inflammation, damage from free radicals, and even acne as it reduces the amount of sebum produced by the skin.
