Hemp-Infused Products To Add To Your Beauty Vanity

Hemp infused skincare products

Hemp is the latest buzzword in beauty! An ingredient, which was once considered niche, has now found its way in a host of skin and hair care products. This plant-based ingredient is attracting eyeballs for being an excellent hydrator. Piggybacking on the trend of skincare routines that focus on de-stressing the skin, hemp-infused products are being cleaned off shelves faster than you can say, ‘Is it even legal?’.

FYI, it is! Hemp – sans Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – is an excellent anti-inflammatory agent that’s widely used in skincare products. Hemp seed oil, which is derived from hemp seeds, is different from hemp oil which is extracted from the flower of the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil is the primary ingredient in skincare products that boast of using hemp as the focused ingredient. It has a soothing effect on the skin and helps control oil production, offering an effective anti-acne solution. It is also a humectant which means it attracts moisture and locks it in. If the ingredient intrigues the beauty enthusiast in you, following are the products you can try to enjoy hemp seed oil benefits:
