Of all of the botanical ingredients in skincare, Hemp Oil is quite possibly the most misunderstood. Many people have confusion over what Hemp even is, let alone what are the benefits of Hemp Oil for the look of skin. That’s because Hemp is a plant that is part of the Cannabis Sativa species, of which the other notable plant is marijuana.
While they both come from the plant of Cannabis Sativa, hemp and marijuana are not the same thing. Unlike marijuana, Hemp does not contain the same level of THC, which means it is a legal, non-psychoactive. Hemp has been cultivated for use in everything from agriculture to food to cosmetics.
Hemp Oil and seeds can also be consumed and are popular ingredients in foods like salad dressing and granola. A rich source of omega fatty acids and essential nutrients, this herb is found in a wide variety of products.
Those omega fatty acids are also what makes Hemp a beneficial skincare ingredient. Hemp Oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant and is what is added to most formulations. It also goes by the name of Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil. Hemp Oil for skin can be used in skincare formulations, like the Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal collection, which provides essential moisture and nourishment while strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier.
