Hemp (CANNABIS SATIVA), is a plant native to Central Asia. For millennia, hemp has been grown, in particular, for its stem whose fibre is used to produce textile, paper and building materials.
Hemp oil is known for its refreshing and revitalising effect.
Hemp oil is regenerating, revitalising, and has anti-aging properties. It helps to fight effectively against the signs of skin aging.
Hemp oil penetrates quickly into the skin for a moisturising and nourishing effect without leaving a greasy touch, and thereby contributes to a good elasticity of the skin.
Due to its composition, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, hemp oil plays a major role in the skin barrier function. It is of great interest in the treatment of irritations and cutaneous dryness problems. It is therefore suitable for the care of dry, mature, irritated, dehydrated and tired skin.
Similarly, because of its composition in fatty acids, Hemp oil helps to deeply nourish the hair. Its fluid and light texture makes it very pleasant to use.
In hair care, hemp oil helps to deeply strengthen the hair. It gives the hair long-lasting nourishment and strength.
