INCI Name: Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil.
Hempseed Oil and Soap Making are a match made in heaven. Hempseed Oil is great for soothing and healing dry skin or mild burns. The high content of unsaturated fatty acids (monounsaturated around 15% and poly unsaturated around 75%), makes Hempseed Oil one of the especially valuable light natural oils. The cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries value Hempseed Oil increasingly for its fatty acid composition (y-linolenic) acid.
Hempseed Oil has a deep green color, and a light nutty odor. It contains Vitamins A, B, D & 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.
Hempseed Oil increases elasticity, shine, and manageability of hair. This miracle oil helps to protect skin from excessive water and moisture loss and contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Hempseed Oil saponifies slowly but produces a stable and conditioning lather in soap. Hempseed Oil is generally used as a small percentage to the base oils/carrier oils used in an overall Soap Making recipe.
