Hemp Seed Oil is Rich in Omega-6s and Omega-3s
Omega-6s and omega-3s are essential fatty acids. They are not produced by the human body naturally and must be found elsewhere. Getting omega-6s and omega-3s from outside sources is key to maintaining healthy skin function.
Hemp seed oil contains the following essential fatty acids:
• ALA (alpha-linoleic acid), a common type of omega-3
• SDA (stearidonic acid), an extremely rare, more bioavailable form of omega-3 than ALA
• Linoleic acid, a common type of omega-6
• GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), a more rare form of omega-6
• These are some of the most critical nutrients for maintaining proper health within the epidermis (outer layer of skin). If lacking within the skin, an array of inflammatory and dry conditions can manifest.
One of the major causes of visible age signs on the skin is the lack of moisture. It leads to the skin looking old and fragile that makes it prone to damage due to various factors. As we age, our skin loses its ability to absorb and retain moisture as required, hence offering it a potent ingredient that can provide and retain hydration and moisture ensures your skin stays healthy and plump. The hemp seed oil has natural moisturizing properties. When applied to the skin, it gets absorbed efficiently to provide the oil required by the skin to remain well moisturized. It also acts as a humectant as it absorbs moisture from the air to keep the skin hydrated all day. Another way in which hemp seed oil moisturizes the skin is by balancing oil secretion levels. It triggers the right chemicals required to keep a perfect balance of oil levels on the skin to retain its natural luster and smooth texture.
Hemp seed oil is composed of more than 80% polyunsaturated fatty acids, including two essential such as linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, as well as rare gamma-linolenic acid. Fatty acids play a vital role in maintaining skin health. The right ratio of fatty acids keeps the skin radiant and young and accelerates healing skin damages. The hemp seed oil contains Omega-3s,Omega-6s in the correct ratio that helps to maintain a proper balance of skin oil. It helps the skin to look energized and rejuvenated, thus reversing the dullness caused due to aging damage.
Hemp seed oil is rich in antioxidants that help reverse the effects of the various parameters on the skin. It can visibly reduce wrinkles, skin dullness, and repair skin texture on regular usage.

One of the significant advantages of using Hemp seed oil for skin is it can do two things simultaneously: moisturise your skin and balance the oiliness without the clogging of the pores. The fatty acid in hemp seed oil help to create a protective barrier over the skin which prevents moisture loss. Hemp seed oil comedogenic rating is ZERO. A comedogenic rating tells you whether the oil is likely to clog your pores or not. If your skin is prone to breakouts, we recommend you to stay away from anything with comedogenic rating 3 or higher.
Hemp seed oil contains all 21 amino acids and one of the highest Omega 6 & 3 essential fatty acids which are key components for maintaining healthy skin.
