Organic Hemp Seed oil is derived from the seed of the plant Cannabis sativa and it contains a number of fatty acids which are very healthy for your skin. These fatty acids nourish and moisturize your skin in the right manner and sufficient amount. There are many skin products like face creams and body creams which have hemp seed oil as the main ingredients. This is because it is herbal and has almost no side effects.
Of the many possible uses of hemp oil as a direct treatment, its efficacy at treating psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin is one of the most promising. Researchers, led by Dr. J. Callaway at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Kuopio, Finland, studied the benefits of hemp seed oil on patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema) and reported the following results: “We saw a remarkable reduction in dryness, itching and an overall improvement in symptoms.”
Hemp seed oil is also rich in “super” polyunsaturated fatty acids, most notably gamma-linolenic acid and stearidonic acid. Although these are not essential fatty acids, they may help reduce the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions.
Solar evaporated Marnoto sea salt sourced from Algarve, Portugal where it is harvested using traditional methods under the supervision of marine biologists working in the coastal wetlands of Portugal’s Algarve region. The rain and the bad weather are very rare in Algarve and that contributes to the quality of the sea salt.
The harvesting and marketing of salt contributes to the sustainable development of a region where people live and work in harmony with a protected wildlife habitat.
Marnoto sea salt is a recipient of the Slow Food Award for the Defence of Biodiversity in 2001 and is certified by the French environmental organization Nature et Progrès to be free of the industrial contaminants sometimes found in mechanically harvested sea salt.
