Is Hemp Seed Oil The Overlooked Ingredient Your Sensitive Skin Needs?
Everything you need to know about this amazing natural ingredient.
One of the greatest little pleasures in life for someone like me is finding a variety of natural ingredients that make sensitive skin feel fantastic while ensuring the environment is happy with my decision, too.
Today, I’m bringing to your attention an amazing ingredient I proudly use in the BRIGHT SPARK Enzyme Oil because it’s both sustainable (shout-out to my trusted ethical suppliers) AND super effective: hemp seed oil.
What’s hemp seed oil all about?
For those who don’t really know this, it’s easy to second-guess the oil once you hear that the hemp plant is part of the Cannabis family.
The good news is that it has nothing to do with the psychoactive properties of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) because hemp seeds don’t contain THC at all or extremely low, BUT it does contain CBD, which has calming properties. So, you can use hemp seed oil with no worries.
Hemp seed oil can be used for a variety of reasons, from cooking food to strengthening nails, but it’s been gaining a lot of popularity in the skincare and cosmetic world thanks to its high levels of essential fatty acids and antioxidants. In fact, it has become one of the most sought-after ingredients for those with acne and/or combination skin.
Why do I love it?
The hemp seed oil has several fantastic benefits for your skin:
This oil has amazing moisturising properties. Not only does it draw moisture to your skin, but it can also lock it in and make it last longer thanks to its Omega 3, 6, and 9 content. If you use it repeatedly, it will improve your skin’s own ability to retain moisture.
Hemp seed oil is an emollient, which helps the skin feel soft and smooth.
This ingredient can do wonders when it comes to skin problems - irritation, eczema, acne, redness etc. Its fatty acids can help reduce the inflammation in the skin and strengthen the skin barrier.
It’s naturally calming, and the moisture it provides is just what you need.
It might sound counterintuitive to recommend using oil on already-oily skin, but this ingredient is just that awesome because it doesn’t clog your pores.
Its fast absorption will do its job while leaving your skin pleasant upon touch and feeling hydrated, but not greasy.
The vitamin A, E, and C that you can find in hemp seed oil will make your skin feel rejuvenated, glowy, and ready to face the environmental stressors throughout your day.
It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - your face will feel fresh and smooth.
Happy Earth, happy humans
Another extremely important reason why hemp seed oil is highly recommended is its sustainability.
In Bright Spark Enzyme Oil, you’ll find 2 types of hemp seed oil from 2 different suppliers, but equally responsible and ethical.
One of them is 100% organic, grown in the U.K - an experienced brand that has been producing and supplying natural oil ingredients for over a decade. The other one uses upcycled hemp seeds that come from a responsible source from the U.K. Instead of the unused seeds going to waste, they create a fantastic sustainable hemp seed oil with natural CBD. They have a very transparent supply chain, allowing me to actually see what happens from beginning to end.
The hemp plant is a highly resilient plant that doesn’t need pesticides or other artificial tools, neither does it need large amounts of water. It can easily be farmed organically, preserving the natural resources, and applying environmental best practices. Its deep and strong roots help regenerate the soil, while also preventing soil erosions from happening.
Moreover, the hemp flowers bloom in the summer, providing pollen for bees and other insects to thrive.
Essentially, the most important thing to know is that the hemp plant allows for a 360 degrees approach, meaning that the entire plant can be used and upcycled.
As you can probably tell by now, the hemp plant is a precious natural gift. Providing incredible comfort and nourishment for your skin, it helps you live your best life both on the inside and the outside.
This natural ingredient makes the Bright Spark Enzyme Oil so much more enjoyable and effective, and I’m proud to be collaborating with sustainable, ethical suppliers that join me on this journey towards environmental health awareness.
