The cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries value Hempseed Oil increasingly for it's fatty acid composition (y-linolenic) acid as well as the positive image. Hempseed Oil is especially great for dry/mature skin. It is often used to soothe dry and irritated skin as well. Hempseed Oil has a deep green colour, and a light,nutty odour. Hemseed Oil contains Vitamins A, B, D and E and is rich in fatty acids, amino acids and proteins. It is also useful for use in acne, dry skin, dry hair, eczema and psoriasis products.
