According to scientific research, hemp oil is the most complete and most effective natural oil used in cosmetics. It is the only vegetal oil with an ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6. Its profile is close to the natural lipids found in the skin, making it a quick-penetrating dry oil.
Hemp has been a legal crop in Canada since 1998. The hemp file in Quebec is evolving at a pace that is both fast and slow. Processing is currently limited to seeds and oil. However, some organizations, cooperatives and businesses are working on large-scale projects in Quebec. In short, it is an evolving topic that many will want to follow!
Hemp oil instantly neutralizes the effects of dryness and dehydration of the skin. Thanks to its ability to quickly hydrate the skin, hemp oil is the ingredient of choice for all skin care. Skin acts as a barrier to protect the body from excessive water loss. In addition, it prevents the penetration of foreign and pathogenic substances, such as bacteria and viruses.
In short, healthy skin is characterized by a good balance between lipids and water. Skin health largely depends on the retention of moisture provided by the outer layer of the epidermis. The weakening of this natural barrier can be caused by sun, dry air, irritating soaps, free radical damage or age-related slowing down of cell renewal. This results in a change in the lipid composition of the epidermis and a reduction in the moisture retention capacity.
