Hemp Oil is one of the world’s richest sources of polyunsaturated fats while also including two of the most important essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, and gamma-linolenic acid. These fatty acids are essential in helping maintain the natural moisture content in the body. They act as as a wonderful all natural moisturizing agent for the skin. Unlike other antibacterial or anti-inflammatory soaps, hemp soap doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals which dry out the skin. You can even use it on your face and you won’t experience that uncomfortable, tight feeling after cleansing. This is because soaps infused with hemp oil do not strip the skin of its natural oils. It’s a gentle cleanser that leaves your skin smooth and moisturized.
If you’re suffering from skin woes such as eczema or rosacea, hemp soap’s fatty acid content can help. This is because it provides anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe or calm irritated skin. The acids can also help with breakouts by reducing redness and swelling.
