If you’re looking to experiment with skin care oils for the first time, there is almost no better oil to start with than organic hemp seed oil. Organic hemp seed oil is unique in that it has a very similar composition of fats and amino acids as our own natural skin oils, making it one of the most well tolerated carrier oils for all skin types. Hemp seed oil is made specifically from the seeds of the hemp plant and has a different composition than the plant itself. For example, there is no THC in organic hemp seed oil; thus, it is both legal and non-psychoactive unlike other parts of the cannabis plant. What hemp seed oil does include, however, is a huge amount of well-known powerful skin care compounds like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). In fact, no other oil is packed with as much essential fatty acids as hemp seed. Overall, hemp seed oil is an excellent emollient (hydrates skin), non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), and improves the appearance of skin by increasing circulation. Followers of the oil cleansing method (OCM) swear by the oil’s pore cleansing and acne fighting abilities as well as its ability to help dry skin maintain balanced moisture levels all day long.
Organic hemp seed oil is a key ingredient in the Volcanics Anti-Aging Cream.
