Hemp is becoming increasingly popular as an ingredient in many skin and beauty products including hemp soap. When it comes to natural skin care the benefits of using hemp are more than just skin deep. Perhaps the two most important features of any skin product, i.e its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, are the two things that hemp is renowned for.
Fantastic Moisturising Hemp
Acting as a fantastic natural moisturiser, Hemp seed oil can dramatically reduce the visible signs of dry skin, whilst providing great nourishment from the inside out. Due to these antioxidant properties, hemp slows down the aging process by reducing the amount of free radicals in your body. Signs of aging, such as wrinkles and lines on the body can be reduced by regularly using hemp based skincare and beauty products. Considered a miracle product by people who understand its many benefits, hemp is one of nature’s most balanced oils. These benefits vary from basic moisturising to alleviating dry skin symptoms such as eczema and psoriasis.
Hemp Soap Raises Melatonin Levels
The essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-9 are often missing from our diets and are not synthesised in our bodies. Amazingly, hemp oil contains the ideal amount required for long-term human nutrition. Hemp soap raises melatonin levels thousands of times higher than normal vitamin E, promoting full body healing. It also neutralises damaging free radicals, and boosts the skins UV defence.
With a comedogenic rating of 0 out of 5 hemp doesn’t clog pores when used on a damp face like a normal soap. Pimple redness is reduced and future break outs are avoided. Skin conditions and acne are treated directly by high levels of omega-3 fatty acid content and the vitamin D stimulates collagen production, boosting elasticity, reducing lines and the appearance of dark spots, and enhances radiance.
