Products with Hemp Oil and Hemp Terpenes - The Amazing Benefits!
The first point to recognize when considering hemp oil is not the benefit, but the properties which help explain why there are so many wonderful benefits of using the product externally, as well as internally. Hemp oil is one of the world's richest sources of polyunsaturated fats while also including two of the important essential fatty acids: omega-3 and omega-6, and gamma-linolenic acid.
Fatty acids are essential in helping maintain the natural moisture content in the body, and because of this, it acts as a good moisturizing agent for the skin. Hemp not only prevents the drying out of the skin, but it is also a rich source of vitamin D. Hemp oil is both moisturizing and penetrating, which helps increase its value when one is looking to add it to whole body care. One begins to wonder why so little focus is provided to this wonderful option in skin care!
These benefits arise from the simple recognition that hemp contains three times more omega-3 fatty acids than it does of the omega-6. This is such an important point since omega-3s are recognized for the anti-inflammatory benefits offered. By applying this to the skin in the form of soap, the fatty acids work to ease the inflammation caused by acne and even slow down the oxidation of free radicals, which in turn help the skin appear more healthy and youthful.
Along with essential fatty acids, hemp is one of the richest sources of vitamin E within the plant kingdom. Regular use can help in reducing the effects caused by aging (more on that below). It even explains why it can work to reduce discomfort as it soothes and restores dry/damaged skin, as it leaves the skin smooth and moisturized. Not only this but when you use hemp oil soap, there is no residue left behind!
Understanding How Hemp Soap Reduces the Signs of Aging
One of the things many fail to realize is that, as we age, the metabolism of our cells decrease and there is a reduction to the amount of essential fatty acids which are ingested that will be released into the epidermis (or the topmost layer of the skin). As a result, our skin becomes thinner and extremely dry. This age-related decline attributes to the formation of wrinkles and even the overall appearance of aged skin. The application of hemp oil through body care products, such as soaps and lotions, compensates for the decline and minimizes the signs of aging.
