From shampoo and shaving cream to serum and soap, hemp seed oil is gaining traction as a key ingredient in a broad mix of beauty products. Local and international brands are using this almighty ingredient to its full potential, creating natural skin care ranges designed to nourish and soothe. The nutrient-dense oil is packed with fatty acids such as omega 3, 6 and 9 to maintain moisture, vitamin D to aid calcium absorption and achieve soft, smooth skin, and natural GLA, which is hugely beneficial for all skin types.
