Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is one of the most popular ingredients in the modern skincare world and there’s a reason for that. It is a rich plant source of unsaturated fatty acids and can be taken orally, as a food supplement, or applied topically on the skin and there’s more and more evidence of the benefits it has for skin health.
It’s worth mentioning how hemp seed oil is extracted and what’s the difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil. Although Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is derived from the hemp plant, hemp oil comes from cold-pressing hemp seeds while CBD oil comes from the leaves. The seeds have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids and bioactive compounds. Hemp seed oil is often unrefined, has a clear green color and is proven to be especially helpful for skin, as it’s loaded with potent antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that have moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
The biggest benefit that hemp seed oil can deliver is moisturizing. Hemp seed oil is a known emollient that draws moisture to the skin and leaves it feeling incredibly soft, plump and supple. The best part is that Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is suitable for every skin type, it doesn’t clog the pores and it can even help balancing out combination or oily skin by regulating the skin’s oil production. Dehydrated and damaged skin can also benefit from using the oil, as it repairs the skin and gives a youthful glow. Hemp seed oil is a naturally moisturizing ingredient which makes it best to use in leave-on products like serums and creams.
Additionally, hemp seed oil has antioxidant properties which means it shows good anti- aging results by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), vitamins A, C and E. GLA is a soothing component that also encourages new cell generation and enhances skin’s elasticity. The presence of antioxidants makes Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil great at combating environmental damage that the skin faces on a daily basis. Hemp seed oil is proven to help relieve skin inflammation while studies also suggest that it has antibacterial qualities and can be used as treatment for various skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne and rosacea.
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil can be paired with many other skincare ingredients to get maximum benefits. Together with hyaluronic acid, for example, they make a great match in even further moisturizing the skin. When it comes to fighting visible signs of aging, it works well with glycolic acid or retinol. Partnering with another pure oil, rich in omega fatty acids 3, 6 and 9, hemp seed oil can help all the ingredients in the formulation act much faster and deliver really quick results.
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil has numerous skin health benefits, it’s really gentle on the skin and there are no known side effects to it which makes it a good choice for sensitive skin. It’s deeply hydrating and revitalizing and pairs well with almost any other skincare ingredient to deliver targeted results.
