 About Hempz

What is hemp seed oil?

Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant, which is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species. You’ve probably heard of Cannabis as it relates to marijuana BUT the species used to make the drug contains higher levels of the component ‘tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)’ which is the component that contains psychoactive properties.

I found some more information from this site MindBodyGreen into uses, how its made and effects.

So, I’ve been using the Milk & Honey range

Why Milk & Honey Body Whip is great!

I’ve found a massive improvement on the softness of my skin – it’s one of my favourite beauty items now.

Exfoliation refers to the removal of the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. 

As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones.

When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.

 

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.

The difference between Hemp and Marijuana

Regular hemp, however, has much lower concentrations of THC, and higher concentrations of ‘cannabidiol (CBD),’ which actually reduces or eliminates the psychoactive effects.

The standard hemp plant has been used for centuries to make rope, clothes, food, paper, plastics, insulation, textiles, and more, while the seeds were eaten raw or ground into a meal.

In addition, the hemp seeds don’t contain THC.

Overall thoughts

PROS:

I love how the products are derived from 100% organic Hemp Seed Oil.

 

The aromatic Milk and Honey fragrance helps soothe and relax the senses – basically it smells like you want to eat it or just wear it forever. I genuinely love the smell – it’s something unfortunately I can’t email for you guys!

A lot of research shows that CBD oil can be highly effective in treating eczema. Eczema can be a painful, itchy skin condition that can be difficult to treat and can often appear on the face and neck. The use of CBD cream has shown a lot of promise of helping people with this skin condition obtain partial or even complete relief of symptoms.

Hemp seed oil has a comodogenic rating of 0, meaning it does not clog pores at all, which makes it a great moisturiser for both oily and acne prone skin types.
  • Vitamins A, C and E help protect skin from natural and environmentally triggered oxidants. More on this here.
  • Helps condition skin for a healthier look and feel
  • Helps provide dramatic skin hydration and nourishment
  • Full of beneficial ingredients – Agave Extract to soothe, soften and moisturise skin!
  • All products are Paraben Free, Gluten Free, THC Drug Free and not tested on animals.
  • Its fatty acid content helps create a protective barrier over the skin which prevents moisture loss.
  • Vegan.
