The trend of utilizing hemp in beauty and skincare products has steadily increased throughout the past few years. With many areas of the United States reducing the restrictions on cannabis, businesses have begun to acknowledge the health benefits of hemp. Hemp oil specifically has been proven to improve the condition of skin when either used in skincare products or ingested.
The best hemp beauty products provide benefits for both internal health and appearance. Hemp oil contains various amino acids, similar to our skin, which allows it to be absorbed easily. It also achieves something many products need to take the time to formulate and produce. Hemp oil is a natural non-comedogenic, meaning it is does not block pores when used in skincare products. Products containing hemp oil are exceptionally beneficial for those with sensitive dry skin. It has also been known to provide anti-aging effects by improving the composition of the skin over time.
Regular use of products containing hemp oil can aid in long term preservation or improvement of the skin’s condition. Companies also include the oil in products due to the healing effects it has on rashes and other skin irritation. The products highlighted in this list do not contain cannabis, and have no psychological effects on the user. They simply offer benefits to the skin and body worth exploring.
Cannabis Santal Eau De Perfume by Fresh
This high end unisex fragrance is intriguingly unique. Utilizing hemp oil, this fragrance stands out in a world of synthetic scents. The fragrance is packaged in a beautiful glass bottle, and makes an elegant addition to a vanity or dressing area. You’ll find the scent to be very woodsy and natural, featuring notes of rose, patchouli and of course cannabis. The fragrance is complex, boasting the inclusion of Brazilian orange and black plum.
Cannabis Santal perfume is produced by Fresh. Fresh offers an extensive line of beauty and bath products, each created with care and packaged beautifully, making them a great purchase for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
