It´s a non-fatty oil that also works as an emollient that´s easily absorbed through the pores and has moisturizing and rejuvenating properties beneficial to the skin.
Because a layer of the epidermis, called the stratum corneum is in charge of moisture regulation in the body (the stratum corneum consists of skin cells held together by lipids). Our skin cells are continuously dying and replacing themselves with new ones. However, the health of the corneal layer or the “barrier” layer is in charge of this cycle.
The key to the integrity of this barrier is moisture, specifically keeping water inside the skin. Therefore, in order to do this, it is necessary to apply a humectant (something that attracts or retains water). Hemp seed oil replenishes (essential fatty acids) and helps maintain the moisture of our skin, making it a natural moisturizer.
