Hemp Seed Oil

Posted on


INCI name: Cannabis sativa seed oil



Hemp seed oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the hemp (cannabis) plant. The plant grows as a weed worldwide. Hemp seed oil is bright green with a nutty aroma.


The oil is high in linoleic (57%), linolenic (19%), oleic (11%), and gamma linolenic (3%) acids and is a natural antioxidant due to its vitamin E and carotene content. Hemp seed oil also contains phospholipids, phytosterols, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, potassium and phosphorus.


Hemp seed oil is easily absorbed into the skin, is emollient, soothing, and restorative and has anti-inflammatory qualities.


Hemp seed oil is good for dry, damaged and aging skin, and reputedly assists in healing skin damage from complaints such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. It can be incorporated into hair care products to give shine to the hair and relief to dry scalps.


Add hemp seed oil to soaps, creams, lotions, eye creams/lotions, balms, lip balms, ointments, body oils and massage oils.
