Vitamin E: Powerful antioxidant that acts protecting cell structures.

Hemp oil: One of its benefits is its ability to regulate the sebaceous glands’ secretion, making it ideal to treat disorders related to both dry skins and oily skins.

Among the hemp oil ingredients, linoleic (Omega 6) and linolenic (Omega 3) polyunsaturated fatty acids are those in greater amounts, providing a smooth texture as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, it is greatly beneficial when treating irritated, inflamed or itchy skins.

Cosmetic products that contain hemp oil have moisturizing, firming and regenerating properties. It doesn’t contain THC, a psychoactive element found in the marijuana’s resin, so it has no side effects.

Soybean oil: Rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids as well, it is ideal for skin care.

Used in cosmetic products, soybean oil has two primary qualities, its ability to retain water, which improves the skin’s elasticity and flexibility, and its antioxidant power than comes from its large amount of vitamin E, suitable to prevent and delay cellular aging.
