So, what's in hemp seed oil?
Hemp seed oil is made up of 80% essential fatty acids. And it contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cell structure needs. Hemp so closely matches our own skins lipids that it is able to penetrate deep inside our cells and lubricate the surface between them, providing a natural moisture balance.
And this is also interesting---Hemp is said to be the only plant oil containing Vitamin D, which is key for calcium absorption. Using hemp seed oil is a smart way to achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin. And you can also take it in supplement form, if you don't want to apply the oil to your skin.
Hemp seed oil is also on the cheap end. A little goes a long way. And you can wear it under makeup daily to battle an oily face, as well as nourish a dry complexion. The oil dries quickly upon application, and leaves a nice matte finish.
