Does that long list of unpronounceable label ingredients in your skincare concern you?
Considering a switch to a more natural skincare routine? Yes? Read on…
Natural Skincare is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the global cosmetics industry as people are growing increasingly mindful about what they put onto their skin. Many of the ingredients we apply topically are absorbed through the skin and into our bodies and when we consider how easily these toxins can be absorbed into our system, we begin to realise how our beauty choices can affect our overall health and wellbeing.
WHY natural skincare matters
What exactly IS Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp Oil Benefits for MORE than just SKIN
Along with a healthy quotient of essential fatty acids, hemp seed oil contains the antioxidant power of vitamins A and E. Antioxidants are a mainstay in skincare offerings as they help protect against environmental and lifestyle stressors and have been shown to have anti-ageing properties.
Hemp seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as omega 3, 6, 9, including GLA. These essential fats help support the skin cells and provide nutrients to encourage cellular rejuvenation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When it comes to moisture, hemp seed oil is a multi-tasker. First off, it’s a humectant which means it draws moisture to the skin. In addition, the omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, plus vitamin E help form a skin barrier simultaneously softening and strengthening the skin and locking moisture in.
Try our Promise Serum with Rosehip is a pro-age, nourishing, hydrating and highly effective essential oil facial blend. To be used as a luxurious daily moisturizer for all skin types. A serum for healthy radiant skin!
Well, this one is interesting! Hemp seed oil is the perfect cleanser because it’s a gentle but heavy-duty makeup remover. Massage a few drops of oil over your face for a few minutes then gently wipe away dirt and makeup with a warm microfibre cloth. We recommend using our Hemp Fibre & Cotton Facecloth.
Hemp seed is a superfood loaded with vitamins. The best way to get strong nails is from the nutrients found in whole food. Vitamins and minerals found in hemp seed can help eliminate deficiencies that cause brittle nails. Alternatively, massage a small amount of hemp seed oil directly onto your nails and cuticles to nourish, hydrate, repair and strengthen, and the anti-fungal properties are a bonus!
NB: Hemp seed oil is best consumed raw. (Cooking denatures its good fats and health giving properties)
