Yes, hemp is most definitely the cool kid of the beauty world right now. We can feel your skepticism from here. It’s palpable. But here’s the unexpected twist for those who’ve had their hearts broken by trend-du-jour skincare ingredients before: it’s legit, especially when it’s found in Cannabliss products. To help bring you into the light of full-spectrum hemp hemp oil skincare, we’ve gone to the trouble of anticipating your toughest questions and answering them. Join us, won’t you?
Just really quickly, why should I even think about putting hemp oil on my skin?
Basically, because it’s such a powerful anti-inflammatory, and just about every skin condition we know of is linked to inflammation.
Cool, so, what kind of conditions are we talking about here?
All kinds of skin discomfort and irritation. It heals eczema and rashes, decreases acne and there’s even evidence to suggest it can help with radiation burns sustained during chemotherapy.
What about benefits?
Well, do you like plump skin? The kind that reduces fine lines and wrinkles? Would you like to moderate your sebum production? What about increased skin cell regeneration? Smaller pores? We’ll give you one guess as to what can do all that.
Wow, that is…many of the things I would like to take care of. How does it help with all that?
Hemp oil has a comedogenic rating of 0, which means it provides sufficient moisture without clogging your pores or leaving an oily feeling, and the GLA found in the oil encourages skin cell regeneration. Linoleum acid and oleic acid, which your body can’t produce on its own, take care of the anti-aging by plumping skin. Along with its anti-inflammatory properties, it’s also an even more promising antioxidant than Vitamin C. Through your skin, the hemp has ready access to your system.
What does hemp oil have to do with my skin?
Hemp oil is the superhero of skin care. It regulates inflammation, lipid and oil production (hello, acne control), bacteria and histamine release. As your largest organ, your skin is uniquely designed to enjoy the company of hemp, and its receptors make it so you should see visible results quickly.
But does it actually absorb into my skin well enough to be effective?
Yes! hemp is permeable through pores and the top layer of skin, hair follicles and oil glands. Our products have a high enough concentration (87% hemp) to penetrate the skin, and our Korean herb formulation gives an extra boost to hemp absorption.
Why is this any better than the hemp seed oil products I’ve used?
Hemp seed oil has been used in beauty products for…ever. As the name suggests, it’s oil pressed out of the seed of the hemp plant. It’s non-comedogenic, so it’s great at providing moisture without clogging pores. Beyond that though, you’re not getting any of the benefits provided by the kind hemp-derived, full-spectrum hemp oil Cannabliss uses, which comes from the flower of the plant, and preserves its nutrients, minerals and vitamins.
Alright, last thing: Am I going to be couch-bound and get really into Phish if I apply Cannabliss?
First of all, let’s not put Phish into the middle of this. Second of all, no. There is nothing in our product that would ever do anything to your system other than achieve beautiful skin!
