In the Raw / Hemp Seed Oil

October 08, 2014

WE LOVE HEMP SEED OIL. Seriously, it’s our favorite. This glorious, grassy-smelling, deep green oil is incredible. Not only is it anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and moisture-balancing, it reduces the size of pores and helps clear up blackheads and acne.

Hemp seed oil is an edible oil expressed from the seeds of Cannabis sativa. (No, you can’t get high from it.) It’s a “dry oil”, meaning it’s non-greasy and readily absorbs into the pores. Ours is cold pressed and virgin, meaning it’s barely processed from it’s initial seed state.

Why is hemp seed oil such a warrior for blemish prone skin? It’s 57% linoleic acid. When our sebum (the oil in your skin) is deficient in linoleic acid it becomes hard and dry and easily gets stuck in the skin causing comedonal acne. By adding linoleic acid to your skin (and to your diet), you create softer and smoother sebum that will more easily flush out.
