Chances are you’ve probably heard of hemp soap before but have never actually tried it. Hemp soap is produced using hemp seed oil and is a great product to use for everyday skin care. Hemp seed oil is effective in moisturizing and softening the skin and also helps to soothe dry irritated skin.
The oil contained in hemp seeds is made up of linoleic fatty acids which are beneficial in both improving and repairing skin lipids. People who suffer from dry or cracked skin often have damaged skin lipids. When lipids become damaged the skin is not able to retain as much moisture and will appear dry and unhealthy looking. Of all the plants in the plant kingdom, the hemp plant contains one of the highest levels of essential fatty acids. In addition to fatty acids the seeds contain valuable amino acids, choline, enzymes, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
People who frequently wash their hands due to their job can benefit from using this type of soap. The soap works great by removing dirt and residue without drying out the skin. Doctors, healthcare professionals, and restaurant workers can especially benefit from using this soap on a daily basis.
Hemp soap is available in a variety of popular scents including: almond, cinnamon, jasmine, lavender, patcholi, peppermint, sandalwood, and spearmint. Make sure the soap you purchase is organically made. This will ensure that the product only contains natural ingredients and no unwanted chemicals or synthetics. Also check to see the percentage of hemp oil that is used in the product. The higher the percentage, the more benefits it will provide to your skin.
Although not a proven method of treatment, many patients who suffer from annoying skin conditions such as psoriasis have reported improvement in their skin after continuous use of hemp soap. Even if your skin is not dry or irritated, after bathing with this soap you will feel both refreshed and relaxed.
