Hemp oil and its incredible cosmetic virtues

Hemp is one of the first plants to have been domesticated by humans in the Neolithic period, for its many applications. Unfortunately, its use has declined greatly in recent history, due to bad press from its cousin, cannabis. (To learn more about the difference between hemp and cannabis read the following article: url, to another article) However, in recent years, hemp has regained its greatness, which allows us to rediscover this plant with multiple virtues.

Cosmetically, hemp seed oil contains high levels of polyunsaturated fat in the form of omega-3 and omega-6. These help restore the elasticity of the skin. Since hemp seed oil has a profile similar to natural skin lipids, it penetrates the deeper layers of the skin and promotes increased skin cell growth, revives collagen production, alleviates dryness, and promotes regenerated, supple and hydrated skin.

In addition to its lubricating power, Jativa's intimate serum with hemp oil nourishes and moisturizes the vaginal mucous membranes, while conventional products tend to dry them out. 

Hemp oil also has the following benefits for the skin: it is anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidant (anti-aging), nourishing, regenerating, firming, softening and soothing. In addition, its anti-inflammatory power makes it an excellent treatment for soothing inflammation and redness such as eczema, acne, rosacea and psoriasis. 

At Jativa, we believe that women should not use anything on their bodies that they don’t put in their mouths. 

In addition to its many skin benefits and its delicate nutty flavor, the oil of hemp is very interesting from a nutritional point of view. While the majority of foods consumed in Western countries provide too much omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid) and too little omega-3 fatty acids (ALA alpha-linolenic acid), thus creating an imbalance and the right conditions for cardiovascular and inflammatory disorders, the omega-6 / omega-3 ratio of hemp oil corresponds to the ideal proportions for human health.

Did you know that consuming hemp oil can also help relieve PMS and the side effects associated with menopause?

Natural and incredibly virtuous, it is high time that we reintegrated this precious oil into our personal skincare routine.
