Discover the Difference Hemp Makes
Hemp oil is widely incorporated in many skin care products and cosmeceuticals. In fact, it's become quite a trendy ingredient. Hemp oil is not just trendy, but it can offer benefits for your skin.
This is the biggest and most well-verified benefit that hemp seed oil can deliver. Hemp oil is emollient and leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
Hemp seed oil is high in antioxidant constituents: fatty acids like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and vitamins A, C, and E. Antioxidant skin care products may help give your skin some protection against premature aging.
Hemp oil contains components that have anti-inflammatory properties, and current research suggests it may help relieve skin inflammation. There's more research that needs to be done here, though, to fully understand how this works on the skin.
Potential Antibacterial Qualities
Studies also suggest that hemp oil has antibacterial qualities. What effect this has on the skin, if any, is still being looked at.
Hemp oil, CBD oil, and other cannabinoids are being studied as possible treatments for a vast array of skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and skin cancer.
One of the many advantages of hemp is its natural sustainability.
Over the last few decades, the effects of unsustainable practices have become more apparent than ever before. Accelerated climate change, inhuman working conditions, and a growing economic gap between countries are some of the biggest problems we face today.
By implementing sustainable farming and industrial techniques, we can help tackle these challenges and secure a better future for generations to come. But, to be successful, we need to find a feasible way to thrive from a social, environmental, and economic perspective.
This is where industrial hemp comes in.
Although it’s in the same family as marijuana, hemp is a harvest crop that doesn’t produce a psychoactive effect. This resilient plant can serve more than 2,500 purposes and it’s inherently sustainable, allowing us to overcome many of the hurdles associated with irresponsible farming and manufacturing.
Below, we’ve created a guide to hemp sustainability, where we will discuss the definition of industrial hemp and explain the impact it can have on the environment.
