At Skinchanted, we use Industrial Hemp Oil in many of our Natural Skincare products, from soaps, to lotions to hair and face creams. Through our research and use, we have found it to be one of the best oils we could possibly use in our products and invite you to try some for yourself.
Hemp oil is very rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 (as well as other) fatty acids, amino acids, vitamin E and boasts a whopping 25% protein content, in an oil that is readily absorbs into the skin without clogging pores. Simply put, it's awesome for your skin, hair and fingernails. The proteins, amino and fatty acids of Hemp oil are very moisturizing and nourishing to the skin, and work very well with problematic skin. Persons with eczema, psoriasis, acne or extremely dry skin often do quite well using hemp based products. It is one of the least problematic or reactive oils for people with skin problems.
Hemp is often times confused with marijuana, but it is actually quite different. Hemp in and of itself contains extremely low amounts of THC which is the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Hemp oil is perfectly legal and will not get you "high" or affect you in any manner. Skinchanted's industrial hemp oil contains no THC, just amazing skin nourishing qualities from an incredible plant.
