Hemp Seed Oil
(With thanks to Brad and Jamie, (Industrial Chemist and Director,) respectively, at https://cannabiscompany.com.au)
"Hemp Seed Oil is considered to be the most balanced oil in all of nature. Hemp Seeds are natural, vegan, full of plant-based protein, packed with healthy fats and perfectly balanced with the correct ratio of the essential fatty acids Omega 6 to Omega 3. For nutrition, it is unparalleled. The raw cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil that we use provides vital nutrients, natural (and legal) cannabinoids, plus it’s high in calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, vitamin E, sodium, sulphur and zinc."
Used for body care in our soaps, Hemp Seed Oil provides a range of necessary skin nutrients and helps to soothe a variety of common skin conditions.
"Hemp Seed Oil contains two essential fatty acids: omega 6 and omega 3. They’re “essential” because our body cannot make them, so we need to have them in our diet. They’re necessary for cell and body growth, maintenance of cell membranes, reducing inflammation and keeping our hearts healthy. Unlike other common sources of omega oils, Hemp Seed Oil provides the right balance of omega-6 to omega-3 in a 3:1 ratio. This means your body can properly absorb it, as without the right balance, it can actually be detrimental. Hemp Seed Oil contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant which helps protect your cells from free radicals. It also contains plant cholesterol, which reduces bad cholesterol in your body and helps regulate your weight. Cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil also provides a ton of other beneficial nutrients."
Hemp Seed Oil can also moisturise the skin without clogging the pores. One of the omega-6 fatty acids that Hemp Seed Oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which can act as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, and may encourage skin growth and new cell generation. Consuming omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids can help treat skin conditions like atopic dermatitis. Also, the linoleic acid and oleic acids found in Hemp Seed Oil are reported to have anti- ageing properties.
