HEMP SEED OIL & ANTIOXIDANTS?
HEMP SEED OIL is derived from the hemp seed. The oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants that may help fight inflammation and other ailments associated with it.
HEMP SEED OIL examples a huge range of skin-nurturing antioxidants. What makes antioxidants so important to skin health is the way they help prevent damage from the sun’s UV radiation, as well as other oxidative damage. Exposure to UV radiation results in skin cancer, hyperpigmentation, and premature wrinkles. The use of antioxidants in skin products is an effective approach towards preventing and lessening aging of the skin. Cold-pressed, unrefined hemp seed oil is reported to protect skin cells from UVB and UVC radiation. HEMP SEED OIL has a natural SPF of 6.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS ?
HEMP SEED OIL is around 80% polyunsaturated fat, one of the highest of any plant, and provide a balanced 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids which is known to be helpful for lowering the "bad" cholesterol and reducing inflammation in the body, when ingested and/or applied topically.
These essential omega fats are vital for cardiovascular health, enhancing metabolism, decreasing arthritic conditions, relieving PMS and regulating hormone levels. In addition, some believe the omega-3 ALA fatty acid can convert to DHA, which is extremely beneficial for healthy brain, nerve and neurological functions.
The green pigment in hemp seed oil is from the small amounts of chlorophyll naturally present in the skins of the seeds. The oil has a strong but pleasant "sweet grass" aroma.
All quality hemp seed oil is unrefined, cold pressed and always dark in colour.
NATIVE JUNKIE only uses the highest quality Organic Cold Pressed HEMP SEED OIL.
What is BETACAREOTENE & CHLOROPHYLL?
The unrefined form of hemp seed oil is fluorescent green due to the presence of phytochemicals like beta-carotene and chlorophyll. These naturally occurring ingredients are rich in anti-inflammatory, antioxidant compounds that protect the skin from water loss, UV radiation and free radical damage,
redness, and environmental toxins.

How does HEMP SEED OIL benefit your skin?
There are several skin care benefits that you can get from using hempseed oil, either topically or by consuming it.
Moderates oil production
Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. HEMP SEED OIL can prevent dry skin without clogging pores. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil.
Moisturizes and soothes inflammation.
One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.
This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.
Treats atopic dermatitis.
Part of what makes HEMP SEED OIL so beneficial to the skin is that it’s rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Consuming these nutrients can help to treat skin conditions like atopic dermatitis.
One randomized, single-blind crossover study found evidence that dietary HEMP SEED OIL reduced the symptoms and appearance of clinical atopic dermatitis after 20 weeks.
Has anti-aging properties.
In addition to moisturizing and soothing the skin, HEMP SEED OIL has anti-aging properties. HEMP SEED OIL can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging from developing.
The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in HEMP SEED OIL can’t be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-aging, so they’re important nutrients to add to the diet.
