A dry oil that is Non-Comedogenic with a level 0 meaning there is virtually no chance of clogging pores. This is due to the oils Lipid profile closely matching our own, this also improves its skin penetration allowing it to reach deeper skin tissue (means longer lasting effects). Recommended to be used in products targeting skin issues such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis.
Contains Magnesium and vitamins D and E. All with their own skin benefits through anti-inflammatory properties, improved skin cell regeneration, strengthened Lipid barrier, helps in maintaining Collagen and balancing Sebum levels.
We recommend choosing this base oil for all skin types but especially if you have oily or acne prone skin. Hemp is rich in Linoleic acid which balances sebum levels that are usually too high due to high levels of Oleic acid.

Detailed benefits of Hemp seed oil see below:
Concentration: up to 72%
A Polyunsaturated fatty acid (better known as Omega 6 or vitamin F). Our bodies can produce Linoleic acid, so we must get it primarily through food consumption. With its light texture and primarily concentrating on the Epidermis, it works to the skin’s Lipid barrier. This helps to lock in moisture while balancing Sebum levels. Linoleic acid is known to be good for most skin types, but its primary benefit is for oily skin due to its ability to balance Sebum levels usually caused by too high a concentration of Oleic acid.
Alpha Linoleic acid:
Concentration: up to 19%
A polyunsaturated fatty acid (Better known as Omega 3). An organic compound produced by the mitochondria within our body’s cells. The amount produced is minimal so the majority of ALA we need we consume from our food. Known for its powerful anti-inflammatory benefits which calms the skin and can improve scar tissue.
Magnesium is a naturally occurring alkaline macro mineral, there is a direct link between a deficiency in Magnesium and reduced healthy Sebum and Collagen levels. When this happens you are likely to have dry and uneven skin tones that eventually lead to an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin D is produced naturally via a bodily reaction to sunlight by UVB rays which can only penetrate the atmosphere around midday due to do it being the time they are concentrated enough to penetrate the atmosphere. Vitamin D can also be chemically produced and added to our food and drinks.
The primary skin benefits are its regulation of skin cell turnover which helps improve and reduce Psoriasis and its strong anti-inflammatory benefits, which reduce redness and can reduce skin pore size.
A common vitamin found in many oils but in varying concentrations. It is primarily an Antioxidant that improves blood circulation while reducing the signs of ageing. It works well at cellular regeneration improving the cellular membranes of skin cells. An essential vitamin for healing scarred and blemished skin.
