What are the Important Beauty Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil?
Regenerating Skin’s Protective Layer – Omega 3 fatty acid rich hemp seed oil has a composition that closely mimics the structure of our skin cell lipids. Infused in our Award Winning Formulation, BioScience Peptide Complex II (with its essential oil blend of Sunflower, Hemp Seed, Jojoba, and Borage etc…), Hemp Seed Oil plays an important anti-aging role and helps bring firmness to the skin.
Fighting Inflammation – Rich in GLA, Hemp Seed Oil is known to boost immunity in our body by promoting the production of prostaglandins that control inflammation. A study done by the ‘Free Radical Biology & Medicine Journal’ by the University of Mississippi, Medical Center found that ‘Cannabidiol’ in hemp seed oil can reduce the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress and thus promote the sustenance of healthy organs. A combination of Hemp Seed Oil with Neem Oil is a powerful organic skincare solution to heal acne faster while preventing scarring.
Regulating Sebum Production – Linoleic Acid is an Adaptogen, which helps it to control/regulate sebum production and is thus an essential aid for people with kapha Ayurvedic dosha (oily skin type), and Vata/Pitta doshas! Lack of GLA can provoke excess sebum production, which can clog pores and give rise to nuisances such as blackheads, whiteheads, acne and other skin lesions. It also helps to relieve your skin from dryness and itchiness, hence reduce the dependence on medications.
Prevents Sunburns – Hemp seed oil has a natural SPF 6 factor and can help you stay protected on mild sunny days. Adding Zinc Oxide and Carrot Seed Oil with it can boost its sun protection rating and help you soothe down. Our SunProtect SPF 30+ is a perfect combination of nature-derived Natural Oils of Sesame Oil (SPF 4), Carrot Seed Oil (SPF 35-40), Almond Oil (SPF 5), Coconut Oil (SPF 2-8), Shea Butter (SPF 3-6), Grapeseed Oil (SPF 4), Jojoba Oil (SPF 4) and Hemp Seed Oil (SPF 6).
Maintaining a Healthy Complexion – Hemp seed oil is known for its moisturizing effect (without being greasy or comedogenic) and also helps to clean, nourish and detoxify our skin – making space for an even skin tone and bringing out a natural glow. Since, it has a similar lipid composition, it helps to deeply moisturize and penetrate into the epidermis and subdermal layers of our skin.
Boosts Hair Growth – The benefits of this oil are not just limited to the skin, but the lipids are also advantageous to promote healthy hair growth, bring shine, strengthen fragile hair strands, and add moisture to your hair. Massaging into the scalp can improve blood circulation and help correct such problems such as scalp psoriasis, itchiness, dryness and dandruff.
