Why hemp is the natural ingredient to watch in skincare and the top 5 benefits

The skincare industry has a new natural ingredient that’s taking the clean beauty world by storm. Actually it’s been around for thousands of years but more recently it’s becoming renowned for its healing properties more time and research is dedicated to understanding hemp’s benefits. Thanks to the powerful botanicals, Hemp is in a class of its own as an all-natural skin care elixir. Hemp is fast becoming the most sought-after ingredient due to its unrivalled benefits. Let’s take a look at the top 5 benefits of hemp.

  1. Calms anti-inflammatory skin conditions
    If you’ve struggled with psoriasis, eczema or lichen planus, then you may find the soothing properties of hemp can help nourish your skin. This is due to the GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which while helping reduce swelling, also encourages cell rejuvenation for new skin growth. Bursting with omega fatty acids, conditions like dermatitis usually respond well to hemp. One clinical study closely monitored showed that participants showed an improvement in just over 20 weeks. 
  2. May help reduce acne
    Hemp is what is described as non-comedogenic meaning it doesn’t block skin pores and it’s rich in linolic acid, the ingredient designed to reduce oil production. It can help reduce the appearance of redness, inflammation, dirt or toxins that may try to enter via our pores.
  3. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
    Two types of omega fatty acids—linoleic and oleic—both found in hemp oil are found to help reduce signs of ageing, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. 
  4. It’s completely natural
    Say goodbye to silicons, parabens, sulphates, petroleum and other nasty toxins that creep into our ‘so called’ natural products. Hemp is 100% natural and incorporated into all of the products sold by Hey Bud.
  5. Suitable for sensitive skin
    Have you ever bought products that have told you to do a patch test to see if you react to the product before using it? It makes you question what on earth is going into their skincare range if you are required to do a skin patch 24-hours prior. With the products developed at Hey Bud, they are specially designed for use with those who have sensitivities. 

You only get one skin for this lifetime, so before you turn to products packed with nasties, try the world’s most natural ingredient – hemp – and watch as your skin responds to its benefits.
