Hemp oil used in cosmetic products is extracted from the seeds of true hemp. Due to its nourishing properties, it is one of the most valuable vegetable oils used in the cosmetic industry. It consists of nearly 80% unsaturated fatty acids, in particular the linoleic acid from the omega-6 group and the linoleic acid from the omega-3 group. Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are present in hemp oil in perfect proportions, i.e. 3:1, which is crucial for the healthy lipid metabolism.
Oprócz kwasu linolowego, zawiera także kwas oleinowy, palmitynowy i gamma-linolenowy.
In addition to linoleic acid, hemp oil also contains the oleic, palmitic and gamma-linolenic acids.
Its composition also includes proteins, amino acids, carotene, minerals (calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc), phytosterols, phospholipids and a wealth of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E and K).
From the perspective of skin care, the most valuable components of hemp oil are the biologically active substances that have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, regenerating and antioxidant properties and protect the skin against harmful sunlight, i.e. tocopherol, cannabidiol and terpineol.
Cosmetic products that contain hemp oil effectively rebuild the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis and reinforce the hydrolipidic barrier that protects the skin. They also help brighten hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone and nourish grey and tired skin.
Large quantities of unsaturated fatty acids keep the skin in good condition, facilitate its regeneration and prevent the formation of wrinkles. The acids keep the skin in good condition and increase its resistance to harmful external factors, such as wind, sun or frost.
Hemp oil is classified as drying oil because it is quickly absorbed by the skin and does not leave a greasy film. It also effectively alleviates inflammation. Therefore, it can also be used on skin affected by various dermatological conditions.
