Hemp Seed Oil
Purefx certified Organic Virgin, Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp Seed Oil is one of the more effective skin-care oils. High in linoleic and linolenic acid - natural essential fatty acids known as the omegas - making this oil very nourishing and healing to the skin.
Omega 3 with its anti-inflammatory action has a therapeutic benefit on problem skin conditions.
Omega 6 is vital for healthy skin function and is important because it provides lipids that coat the outer layer of the skin. Omega 6 deficiency symptoms include dry skin, hair loss and poor wound healing.
Omega 9 promotes healthy inflammation responses and although not present in large quantities, omega 9 fatty acid is the same as the oil produced by our skins glands.
The oil is non-greasy, readily absorbs into the pores, is an emollient, and has rejuvenating and moisturising properties for the skin
Hempseed oil is one of the few sources of gammalinolenic acid (GLA), an EFA that resembles sebum, the natural lubricant in skin & hair.
For Rosacea skin, it is wonderful - it reduces inflammation and nourishes skin that is otherwise hard to 'feed' and care for due to hyper-sensitivity.
Studies have also shown that topically applied omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid and omega-6 linoleic acid, both found in good quantities in hemp seed oil, are effective in the therapeutic treatment of acne skin, since it helps in inhibiting the inflammation and thereby preventing or alleviating "breakouts".
